The New Complete Book of Bridge
By Albert Dormer and Ron Klinger
This is the third edition of a major publication. No other bridge book covers bidding and play in such comprehensive detail.
This book gives a full account of modern Acol and of the whole range of defensive and competitive bidding. It is suitable for players up to a high standard but will readily be understood by less experienced players as each topic starts with the fundamentals.
The play of the cards is covered in all important aspects, with an emphasis on mental approach and on principles of wide application. Deals are presented in a way that allows the reader to develop his thoughts and arrive at solutions. There are many hints of practical value that will stay in the mind.
Albert Dormer was not only an international bridge champion player but was also one of the world's leading bridge writers with a string of remarkable books to his credit, including Dormer on Deduction, as well as being bridge correspondent of The Times for four years from 1990. He lived near Inverness in Scotland before his death in 2014.
Ron Klinger is a leading international bridge teacher and has represented Australia in over 20 world championships since 1976. An Australian Grand Master and a World Bridge Federation International Master, he has written over 60 books, some of which have been translated into Bulgarian, Chinese, Danish, French, Hebrew and Icelandic. Two of his titles - Guide to Better Card Play and Right Through the Pack Again - won Book of the Year awards. He has created many new bridge ideas and devised a number of conventions. He lives in NSW, Australia, and has written a daily bridge column in The Sydney Morning Herald and The Sun-Herald for over 15 years.
