The hands of time
A fascinating collection of the 'best of the best', selected by one of the world's top bridge writers. Taken from nearly a hundred years of bridge history, these deals will provide any bridge player with hours of fascinating reading. Each of them has its own unique point of interest, sometimes deriving from a brilliant maneuver in the play or bidding, sometimes from the circumstances surrounding the deal or its consequences. Some of these deals decided a world title, some were important only to those who took part, and at least one ended a partnership...192 p.
"Entertaining reading on all levels as it presented both excellent bridge and pleasing anecdotes about players. A few of the deals are quite well-known, although even then [the author] often adds a nice personal twist. It is an ideal birthday present even for bridge players who say they don't read bridge books. While we could quibble about the selection of some of these deals over others, it is being pedantic for we should accept the book for what it is -- a celebration of bridge that can be enjoyed at many levels. I'm waiting for the sequel."
