Overview

Knack Bridge for Everyone: A Step-by-Step Guide to Rules, Bidding, and Play of the Hand by D. Crisfield

Bridge is a famously challenging card game, one that’s next to impossible to learn without a whole host of visual aids. But books on the subject all too often seem to ignore this. Enter Knack Bridge for Everyone, which takes a step-by-step, visual approach to explaining the game clearly to beginners and intermediates. With 400 full-color photos, as well as numerous charts and diagrams, it begins with the rules and the fundamentals of bidding, play, defense, and scoring. It then takes the bidding up a notch by introducing more bidding techniques and strategies for winning.
