The late Terence Reese, perhaps the greatest bridge writer of all time, introduce the 'over-the-shoulder' style of bridge writing in his classic Play These Hands with Me. In this wry homage to the master, Horton leads the reader through a plausibly logical line of play on each instructive deal, but one that ends in failure. In each post-mortem, the 'expert' realizes how he could have improved on his play, and (usually) have made his contract. The deals are all from top-class events, which prove to be a remarkably fertile source of such material. A book filled with subtle humor and great bridge. A tounge-in-cheek homage to Reese's classic, only this time declarer always finds in the post-mortem that there was a better line of play. Entertaining and instructional.
