About the Book

S.J. Simonís classic Why You Lose at Bridge, dispensing advice to the improving player through archetypical bridge characters such as Futile Willie, the Unlucky Expert, and Mrs. Guggenheim, is regarded as one of the best books ever written on the game.
In this follow-up book, Julian Pottage uses the same approach to discuss common failings of modern club players Ė misdescribing your shape, overvaluing your hand, bidding the wrong slam, playing a flawed system, giving the wrong signal, making losing leads, and many more.

Critics’ Viewpoint

As always, Pottage writes crisply and makes his points well.

— David Morgan, \'Australian Bridge\'    Date: 2015-01-16

One of our favorite British authors, Julian Pottage, features the same charming characters [as Simon], but highlights some newer concepts in modern bidding that many of us get wrong. A good read for all levels.
