"The card-reading and tecnical skills [of the Polish Stars] are impressive. The format - with bridge-movie-like questions for each deal diminished the spectacular aspects by revealing the reasoning of the players. [However] this manner of presentation makes the book more useful to a much greater number of players, for it assists the read to develop [his own] skills."
— The Bridge World
"A really fascinating book of top-level combat."
— BRIDGE magazine
"Deserves to be embraced by the expert bridge community, particularly since few of the deals and players are as well-known as they should be."
— ACBL Bulletin
"Do not play for big money against any of the players featured!"
— Bridge Plus magazine
