5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and a "MUST READ" new book for Bridge lovers., May 19, 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Easier Done Than Said: Brilliancy at the Bridge Table (Paperback)
"Easier Done than Said - Brilliancy at the Bridge Table" by Prakash Paranjape is a beautiful book to read. It is a great book for bridge players at all levels. I have never been (acknowledged as) a Bridge Expert. It is said that one cannot know how a millionaire thinks (especially when it comes to spending) unless one is a millionaire. I may never know what experts think about this book. But I know that some so called experts were scared to read Hugh Kelsey's book "Adventures in cardplay" when it was published, thinking that it may confuse their thinking process and they may actually do worse in the Bridge tournaments if they read it. Well, no one needs to be scared of Paranjape's book in that way. It is a great book because it is easy to read and easy to understand. It has been known that Paranjape has a fine eye for instructive deals. What I think is, any deal that Paranjape sees, he will find an interesting point or two from it. What he and the editor Ray Lee have done extremely well in this book is that they have selected the deals wherein not only a great analysis has been presented, but it can be understood easily. There are no cliches used and a reader does not have to be a great statistician to understand the concepts presented. And still readers can learn a lot from the book and play better. Paranjape has described some great plays that are brilliant and elegant at the same time. Logic of each situation has been presented so beautifully, that a reader is enthralled by the simplicity. My hats off to the author, editor and Chuck Messinger, who has done the additional analysis for the deals in the book. I would give "TWO THUMBS UP" to Paranjape's book and recommend strongly for your reading pleasure. It is pleasing, entertaining and instructional for any Bridge enthusiast.
