Two major complaints:
1. I wish that the author had at least covered all of the mechanics and scoring rules of the game, even if very briefly, so that the book could serve as a complete introduction. For example, Grant mentions double bids, but does not devote even a sentence to how they work. She does, however, devote a sentence to letting the reader know that she will cover double bids in the next book in the series. This leads me to my next complaint:
2. The book has clearly been created by a slick marketing machine, and is rife with ads ads ads for the next book in this series, books in other series, bridge software, bridge magazines, etc. It presents incomplete information so as to lock you into the series, thus making you pay $30 (for books 1-3) for *less* information (since those books don't cover declarer or defender play) than is available for $15 in other more-complete introductory bridge texts, such as in Bridge for Dummies or the Complete Idiot's Guide to Bridge.
All in all, this book is expensive for what you get, and I don't think it's worth the price.Read more ›
