"Experience, that great teacher, finds better methods all the time for an open mind in arriving at closer calculations in partnership deductions, and more mathematical inferences from the bidding. In rewriting my book this autumn, I have left unchanged only the fundamental principles of counting the original hand, raising the Partner's bid, and the chapter on "Leads and Discards." No that I have changed my methods of bidding materially, but I have gone into greater detail ... All deadwood has been cleared away and unnecessary matter eliminated, leaving a clear, simple explanation of the game as it is played to-day." - Foreword. Classic auction bridge instruction manual. ; x, 220 pages.
