This little book uses a teaching strategy that one might think would be obvious: Explain what problems mean before showing readers how to solve them. The way it does so is to show how to play a hand before talking about bidding.
I remember how frustrated I was when I first learned how to play bridge: I had a bunch of rules dumped on me about how to bid, and had no conception of whether or not a bid made sense beyond seeing whether it followed those seemingly arbitary rules. If I had read this book then, it would have let me avoid all that frustration.
There is one point about which prospective readers of this book should be aware: It is based on British bidding style rather than American style. Nevertheless, I have absolutely no doubt that it deserves five stars, and should be much better known than it is.

Format: Paperback
This book is a perennial gem and justly deserves its classic status. Reese is most adept at presenting the world of bridge not just as a mathematical proposition, but a real-life competition against real players who are dying to sacrifice to keep you from making game -- and also for players whose partner is a bit of a doofus.

There are many excellent books written by many bridge experts. I would say in a short amount of time BRIDGE FOR BRIGHT BEGINNERS covers a lot of time in a fair, friendly manner and leaves the reader much better informed. Who could ask for more than that?

Bridge can be scary and complicated to the newbie but this book really helps calm the terrors! It is designed to take you step by step through the process of bidding and taking tricks. It points out where your focus should be in the beginning so that you can advance without feeling overwhelmed. I also recommend this book for Bridge players who need help in grasping the concept of the game as a whole.

I purchased this because it was the only reasonably priced bridge book available for Kindle. It feels dated because it is not as interactive as a bridge program I downloaded. To use this book you have to lay out the individual hands as you are led through the thought process in bidding. This is laborous. I would strongly recommend, that instead of buying this book that a I Pad user download an interactive tutorial.
