About the Book
Co-winner of the 2022 International Bridge Press Association Book of the Year award. In the course of her Bridge: A MindSport for All research project, sociologist Dr. Samantha Punch has been able to interview many of the world's top bridge personalities. The topics of these conversations were wide-ranging, and included the dynamics at the table, challenges, motivations, emotions, partnerships, teammates, skill development and gender issues. As a bonus, each subject offers their favorite bridge tip. Top players, coaches and even sponsors talk frankly about what life in the top echelons of bridge is all about -- and give the reader a revealing glimpse of what it is really like "behind the screens".
