2/1: More power, more fun
This book can be used as an absolute beginner book, teaching the 2/1 bridge bidding system from the start. Use just Chapters 1-5 to teach children as young as 6! They can learn how to play before they are ready to learn how to bid. Older than 9, kids can move right along with adults into learning the bidding system. The book can also be used by a novice player who has the mechanics down but who still needs help with bidding structure and playing tips as well as scoring. Those players can start with Chapter 6. If you already play a good game of Standard American but want to switch to 2/1 then you should start at Chapter 11. If you already know 2/1 but don’t know a couple of other conventions needed when responding to an opening bid of a major suit, then perhaps you just need Chapters 14 and 15. There are dozens of deals for practicing both bidding and play. Use the book the way that suits you best!
Kathy Rolfe (Lake Winnebago, MO) is an intermediate player and ABTA Master Teacher. She is a retired electrical and quality engineer who gave up engineering for full-time bridge teaching and playing when her co-workers began teasing her about which was a real job and which was a hobby. She comes from a long history of social bridge before she took up duplicate and so has a real grasp of what it takes to move from social bridge to duplicate. She also started by teaching bridge to youth and then moved on to teach adults, so her passion for introducing youth to the game is present at all times!

Very valuable for a teacher who wants a blueprint for setting up classes.
