About the Book

Twenty-six of the world's best players talk about bridge — how they got started, their best and worst memories, their favorite hands, the players they most admire, the opponents they most fear, and their hopes for the future of the game. As you read this book, you will see the human side of people who up to now may just be names in a bridge column, but you'll also get from them a series of tips and ideas that will help you improve your own game.
