Bridge partnerships can be fun. We all know that. Of course, they can also be difficult, maddening, disappointing, and frustrating. When the players of these partnerships are also spouses - well that's when things can get downright tricky. Kathleen Vishner shares with you the highs and lows of learning duplicate bridge while partnering with her ever-patient husband, Andy. Experience as she does the initial shock of a penalty double or the bewilderment at the sheer number of rules that can be unwittingly broken. For teachers - helpful "Hints" throughout the book will remind you of the beginner's mindset and suggest techniques to help students learn and become more comfortable with the game. Many illustrative bridge hands pinpoint typical areas of confusion and explain the reasoning behind the many misunderstandings of a less experienced player. This book tells a delightful story, always punctuated with humor, and one that can be appreciated by bridge players of all experience levels.
