You asked for more!
Following the runaway success of Practice Makes Perfect, bridge teachers asked the authors to produce a similar companion book to 25 More Bridge Conventions You Should Know. And here it is -- a brief summary of each of those 25 more conventions, together with example hands that can be dealt out and used to apply your new knowledge.
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.
David Bird (Southampton, UK) is the world's most prolific bridge writer, with 150 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 nine times. His celebrated humorous fiction series, featuring the cantankerous Abbot, has run for over 45 years.
Perfect for the improving player, this book has four full hands with bidding and play for each convention, a clever way to include important card themes.

Seagram, one of the top teachers in the world, and Bird, the prolific author, have always managed to achieve the right balance of complexity for their target audience. [This is] the usual good stuff from Seagram and Bird.

The Introduction sets out the aim of the book: “To improve your game, and have fun”. It should succeed on both counts, particularly the first.
