In the course of her Bridge: a MindSport for All research project, sociologist Dr. Samantha Punch has been able to interview many of the world's top bridge personalities. The topics of these conversations were wide-ranging, and included the dynamics at the table, challenges, motivations, emotions, partnerships, teammates, skill development and gender issues. As a bonus, each subject offers their favorite bridge tip. Top players, coaches and even sponsors talk frankly about what life in the top echelons of bridge is all about -- and give the reader a revealing glimpse of what it is really like "behind the screens". "The interviews make the names we see on VuGraph come to life. The tips are tricks of the trade that will be useful to players of all levels. It is a fun and informative read." -- Jill Levin "...intimate and revealing pictures of who these stars are, how they got to the top, and what keeps them there. The interviews are absorbing reading and the advice will help players at any level. The suggestions on partnership and mental toughness are of particular note." -- Chip Martel
