Following on from their earlier book, Planning the Defense, Seagram & Bird move on to more sophisticated aspects of defensive cardplay for advancing players. Using the same step-by-step approach, the authors guide the reader through the issues involved in communications, deception, trump promotions, discarding and avoiding the embarrassment of being endplayed.
Barbara Seagram (Toronto, Canada) ran one of the largest and most successful bridge clubs and bridge schools in N. America. After selling the club in 2007, she now concentrates solely on teaching and organizing her popular bridge cruises. An ABTA Master Teacher, Barbara has been involved in many of MPP's most successful titles, most notably 25 Bridge Conventions You Should Know. With more than 200,000 copies in print in English alone, this book is the bestselling bridge title since Charles Goren was writing in the 1950s. It has been translated into Japanese, French, Danish and German. A brief interview with Tracy Mumford from the Minnesota Public Radio on the show “Fargo,” with a 10 minute interview (at the end) with Barabara Seagram talking about a beginner’s guide to bridge.

David Bird (UK) is the world's most prolific bridge writer, with 141 bridge books to his name. Known for the clarity of his writing and explanations, he has won the American Bridge Teachers Association Book of the Year award a record eight times.
