Format: Spiral-bound
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.

Great book for most bridge players. Grant teaches how to think and respond to a variety of situations as well as cues to tell partner about your hand. Deals, bidding and defensive strategies are clearly explained, by reviewing these plays, it keeps me progressing and learning to be a more effective player.

This the third in a series of bridge books for beginning and intermediate players but could serve as a review for anyone who hasn't played in a while (although defense really hasn't changed anywhere near as much as bidding). I would strongly recommend one starts with Bidding, then Play of the Cards before going on to this volume. The spiral binding and format make it very convenient.

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 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.

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 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)
