The world's oldest, and leading, bridge magazine, The Bridge World, said of this book:'Guide to Better Card Play is an elementary-through-intermediate textbook on declarer play and defence.
Appropriately, the two phases of the book receive equal attention.
The book can be used either as a self-teacher or as the basis of a series of lessons.
In addition to the tutorial material, which is comprehensive, careful and instructive, the work is choc-a-bloc with summaries, reviews, quizzes and example deals.
There is even an appendix that allows your foursome to set up the practice deals yourself.
We like almost everything about this book, we especially liked the attention to partnership methods, the topic selection, and the carefully constructed lesson deals.
There are other good texts at this level, but Klinger's book has twice as much material as similar works.
This is a very good buy.'
