In its new modernized form, the concepts and terminology are much more accessible, and the book includes a number of squeeze concepts that have been discovered since the first publication.

Hello Linda, I want to thank you for redoing this book by Clyde Love. I had read his original edition many years ago, and never quite understood the main points. I\'m so glad I bought your revised edition, because you did a great job making it easy to understand. I love the exercises and problems, and am looking forward to my next bridge game so I can apply what I\'ve learnt. Again, thank you very much for an excellent job!

"I found myself glued to the pages. The text has been lovingly updated -- auctions reflect current methods, examples have been reanalyzed, and lots of new examples added. This is the bible for understanding and executing squeezes. Even if you think you'll never encounter (or recognize!) one of these positions in real life, the examples in the text are terrifically enjoyable. A+. "

‘This has been one of the classics of the game for five decades [and] this second edition is a vast improvement over the original. Lee and Pottage... have updated the text, modifying existing examples or even replacing them where necessary. They have provided solutions and explanations [and] have also filled in gaps, including trump squeezes (previously missing) and squeezes discovered in the years after the book was first published. As a result, the contents live up to the title.’
