The Official Encyclopaedia of Bridge is an excellent all-round bridge reference. It provides everything you could possibly want to know about bridge. Biographies are well-researched, conventions explained in detail. Obscure coups, endplays, squeezes are provided and explained with diagrammed examples. A great number of pages are dedicated in card combinations and deals with this subject is dealt in a comprehensive and complete manner, a first in bridge literature. I thoroughly recommend this book, my only slight complaint is that the book is getting slightly out of date and perhaps it is time for new edition. Bridge in the internet has grown tremendously between now and the time of print and this subject has only received little coverage in this edition.

a decent reference. i have only two things to complain: it's too north-american oriented (for example, there is no explanation for 'polish club' or for 'standard french system') and it doesn't have any website or electronic contact for updates/comments etc.

Verified Purchase
I bought it for $3 and it covers EVERYTHING in bridge. I hear other bridge players debating: the best way to finesse in certain situations, the definitions of bridge terms, the proprieties during bidding, etc. The 800+ pages in this encyclopedia cover it all (and it seems many of the "experts" in my area have not read this book). This edition is quite old, but most of the info is still valid. (About a third of it provide biographies of past bridge experts - yawn.)
