If you are somewhat new to the game or an advanced player, this book should be in your library.

We have really been pleased with this book--easy to read and understand but challenging and educational.

I have played duplicate bridge for less than a year, and this is a great book to learn defensive plays.

This is a must for the serious and not so serious bridge player. Explanations of bids and plays are very clear including the rationale of various plays.

What a great help this book is! It makes defense so easy to understand plus it reviews other bridge concepts also. LOVE this book. It's so gentle - which sounds funny but trying to learn so many things at once to play bridge a person really appreciates the gentleness in this book. And there are so many practice hands it feels like there's always another chance if I didn't get it just right.

This book really helps new players or "rusty" players with more experience. It makes a great addition to the series. Defense in the 21st Century, 2nd Edition: The Heart Series (Acbl Bridge Series)

This book is another hit in the Grant, Starzec series. The information is clearly presented with lots of examples and also exceptions to the rule. It includes review topics from Grant and Starzec's first 2 books, "Bidding" and "Play of the Hand".You can read it cover to cover or refer to your specific topic of interest in the table of contents. If you are somewhat new to the game or an advanced player, this book should be in your library.

This is a must-have book for new bridge players or anyone who wishes to improve his/her playing. It is easy to understand and learn. One can readily apply these principles to playing immediately. The result should be reflected right away.

This is the third book of the series that I have purchased. All have been very beneficial and improved my game in leaps and bounds.

This book helped me so much in playing bridge and defending. I had concentrated more on winning the bid and making the contract and usually lost interest in defending. After reading the book, I have several things in my arsenal for wrecking the game for my opponents. They go down a lot more now and they usually don't see it coming. Would definitely recommend this series of books.
