This book concisely outlines winning strategies for team events, emphasizing knockouts and Swiss, with a nod to board-a-match. Sophisticated readers will find little new, but for intermediates or newcomers to team events, the discussions should be helpful. The issue of whether you are on the weaker or stronger team, and how this might affect your strategy, especially in the second half of a knockout match, is a highlight. For players of every stripe, the author usefully offers solid reminders that good teammates don't grow on trees, that it pays to recognize like-minded attitudes in pairs you wish to court, and that developing winning habits yourself will make you more marketable. To flesh out the book, the author includes some pet conventions and treatments.
