After buying Bridge for Dummies and 5 Weeks to Winning Bridge, I bought Goren's Contract Bridge for Beginners. Goren is very simple and straight to the point in describing the game of bridge and the bidding process. The first section of the book shows you how to evaluate the strength of your cards. After strength is evaluated, Goren shows you how to bid and how to find a contract match with your partner. Goren also describes the details of scoring, bidding, response bidding, rebidding, doubling and all other important features of the game. All of Goren's explanations and instructions are VERY easy to understand. Examples are given and discussed in enough detail to get you started! Slam bidding is also included in this book. I bought this book about 6 weeks ago and I am enjoying playing bridge on the Internet with players from all over the world. Buy this book BEFORE you buy any of the others. This book will get you started quickly and efficiently and the price is right!

Wanting to teach my wife bridge, I thought this would be a great way to get started. Unfortunately it teaches four card majors, which hardly anyone ever uses anymore. If you want to learn bridge you'll find it much easier to learn the right habits in the first place. It's not terrible if you want to learn an out of date bidding system, but I would say spend a little more and buy Goren's New Bridge Complete which is excellent.

An excellent book for the novice. Extremely helpful. Very explanatory. Borrowed my friends copy and purchased my own for future reference. There's too much to remember in bridge and this book is a great refresher course & reference.

I am taking a contract bridge class and bought this book to review before I went to my first class. It was a tremendous help and I wasn't lost in the class especially since everyone else had played bridge at one time and some were even playing at this time. I would highly recommend this for anyone deciding to play bridge for the first time or even for people who needed a review to start playing bridge.

Book is excellent. It starts you off at the beginning as a complete novice and goes from there.

This book has helped!! Bridge is a game of knowing the rules and remembering them while making a plan to win the game. Contract bridge for beginners was great support in remembering the rules and using them to win and become a good bridge player

I should have gotten this in traditional hard copy book form. It is frustrating to read on my Kindle. I have used my Kindle to see the "hands" on one page and my tablet to read how to best bid and respond.

Great way for novices to learn rudiments of Bridge. Goren's classic approach works. If you stick with the program you'll not only learn the game but have fun doing it.
