It does not cover rules, scoring hands, or the strategy behind discarding. It assumes you understand when points are awarded during play.
Back to what it is… It’s less than 100 pages, big print, more than a few large diagrams. It presents common situations and goes through the logic behind making good choices. Some of it is “chess-like”, If you do this then she can do that and then you’ll get to do something even better or she might do this other thing in which case… Turns out there is a fair amount of reasoning and the game isn’t as much about luck as you might think.
Some of the strategies are presented as simple rules of thumb. Thing you might know already or perhaps may have learned the opposite. Other aspects are guidelines where you need to concentrate a bit more than normal to master. Finally, it gets you into the head of a successful player and give you a sense of ways you can win more games.
However much of this book you care to absorb, it will give you a greater appreciation for playing a cribbage hand and more likely than not, make you more successful at doing it.
