The late Victor Mollo (London, UK) is one of the best-loved authors ever to write about bridge. He wrote many excellent how-to books on the game (including the classic Card Play Technique, with Nico Gardener) but it is as a humorist, and the author of Bridge in the Menagerie and its sequels, that he is best remembered.
Originally written by Terence Reese, the world authority in bridge, it has now been revised by David Bird, one of Britain's top bridge writers. It is packed with interactive quizzes, insights and insider tips to perfect your technique and build up your skill. You can also assess your progress throughout the book with self-tests and chapter summaries.
