Comments to eBook Bid Better, Play Better
Samardenob
The Kindle edition suffers from careless typesetting, almost as though it were computer generated with nobody checking the final product. Some of the more common errors include mixing up the symbols for suits (e.g., a club instead of a spade), weird spacing ("1 0 876" instead of "10 8 7 6"), and character substitutions (such as "I" or "l" instead of "1"). Having to cope with these frequent errors makes reading the examples and exercises a real chore.

As for content and writing style, I agree with the other reviewers that this book is a gem. If it weren't for the sloppy editing, I'd have awarded five stars.

I have been learning to play duplicate bridge for three years and own 20 bridge books (wow I didn’t realize I have accumulated that many until now!) and this one is one of the most helpful. I’ve got to the point where I know many things by theory but often make mistakes at the table. I want to learn how to think, reason, and make the right choices at the table. This book points the way. What helped me most are how to continue re-evaluating my hands while bidding is going on, the Opening Lead, the Art of Signaling and Competitive Bidding.

The topics are ones for intermediate and advanced players. Good explanations and examples are given. When it was translated for kindle spades are sometimes listed as clubs. Also the 4 hands come out on different pages making it hard for the reader to concentrate. The worst thing is not being able to see the complete bidding.

This is a great book for a novice or an intermediate player like me. The information is laid out very concisely with helpful quizzes at the end of each chapter.

A lovely book for the "serious beginner." Dorothy Truscott -- for years head honcho of the New York Times bridge column -- does indeed stress thinking rather than reacting at the bridge table. For example, would you support a bad bid by upping it? Yet many people do. Not every bid belongs to you and partner, and not every hand is bound for game. Think! This book helps you do just that, with humor and common sense.

The author is a well known bridge player of some stature. The book is well written with some humor, although some of the concepts are outdated.

What I found disturbing was the lack of editing. It needs to be edited by someone familiar with the game in order to correct some of the typos. When I complained to Amazon, I received a form letter. "Thanks for writing with your comments regarding the typographical errors .It is certainly not our intention for our customers to have anything but a pleasant experience using Kindle and Kindle applications. I apologize for any inconvenience caused in this regard. " Not very satisfying.

Still the book is worth reading.

Dorothy Hayden Truscott is the best bridge teacher in the world! Makes perfect sense & improved my game tremendously!
Basic bridge at its best presented in a fun and easy to read format, order both of her books together! Who better to learn from than a member of the ACBL Hall of Fame, and inventor of the splinter bid. Chapter Two on forcing bids is one you will want to share with all your friends once you read it, so get your copy machine ready to roll into action until they order their own book. "Bid Better" covered everything about bidding, leading and signaling imaginable and was so easy to understand, and was NOT boring. She writes in a way to capture your attention. Dorothy states "The way to improve your bridge is to cut down on your mistakes. There are two main causes of error: bad judgment and ignorance. Errors in judgment are not easy to correct but errors due to ignorance are." This book gives the information needed to cut down on errors through the knowledge it presents, and the wonderful tips for all levels of players. A book you can read more than once and still enjoy and learn. This book was recommended to me by my friend Cary Bush, tytyty.
