Format: Paperback
The primary appeal of this book is its thinness. Bridge already has a daunting reputation, and thick books don't help. The goal of a beginners bridge book should show the student enough of the game to get them to the table. Some of the more esoteric cases and topics can be postponed.
This book accomplishes these goals admirably. Nonetheless, I would have appreciated a second summary chart covering respones to a bid of 2 Club Stayman.
Still, do not be deceived - this book requires multiple readings to ensure that it all sinks in.

If you're a pretty good card player, the hardest thing about learning Bridge is becoming fluent in the specialized language of bidding. Mr. Lampert actually makes this task enjoyable with his great cartoons. They make it easy to recall the proper bid(s) in each situation you encounter. This book is proof that a picture is worth a thousand words.

I have looked at several bridge books for beginners. This one breaks things down step by step, so you're not overwhelmed with information. It also explains the logic behind bids and plays, which makes them easier to understand and remember. It is by far the best beginner bridge book I have seen.

This book's great cartoons and straightforward approach make learning bridge fun and easy. I recommend this book to many of my students: they seem to enjoy reading it and come away with a firm grasp of the basics. The cartoons and helpful summaries really stick in your mind!

Harry Lampert outlines the game of bridge so simply and fun and interesting. I bought this book (I have my own copy) for my doctor who at 70 has just taken up the game is hooked and loves the book very much. This is my bridge bible and I recommend it to any avid player !!
