Format: Paperback
80% of the problems are declarer play. You are shown only dummy and you hand, and are given the bidding and the first card or first few tricks and asked what to do.

To answer the question you must:

1. use the bidding and play to place unseen honor cards
2. use the bidding and play to determine the defenders hand patterns
3. visualize what is going to happen later in the play

There are a few squeezes, but most problems don't require advanced techniqe.

Based on your choice you will be presented alternative card plays and asked how to deal with them.

The hands are not striaght forward as they require some thought about the significance of what you discover. You may have to play for dropping the king 4-1 because you dont have enough entries or pushers to pick it up onside.

This is the type of book that one should reread every couple of years until you are solving 95% of the problems.

I like the format of the play in that the authors ask questions and then respond with their thinking. You are not given the opposing cards because, really, the outcome doesn't matter. Great book on how to think through the play of the cards.

Format: Paperback
A classic bridge book, first published in 1960, the authors analyzed and guided the best play in each of the 67 hands for the declarer or defender. Easy reading and up to the point. It will give you confidence the next time you sit down at the bridge table. A rare and valuable book indeed.
