David Bird's witty stories about the bridge playing monks of St. Titus and their obnoxious Abbot have formed the basis of six previous collections, and appear regularly in bridge magazines throughout North America and the UK. This seventh book in the canon is presented in a new quiz format, so that you can try to solve the bridge problems before the monks encounter them. At the end of the book, an annotated Answers section allows you to rate your own game.
