Mastering Bridge is a Journey

This is a book for improving players who have graduated from the novice class and are embarking on the long journey to that coveted Life Master title - which now in North America requires winning 500 masterpoints.

Written in a light, readable style, with liberal use of cartoons and aide-memoires, the book first addresses the mental approach necessary for bridge success - topics including how to learn, being mentally tough, trusting partner, and how to have constructive discussions after a disaster. It goes on to cover the numbers game - basic probability, how the scoring method affects decisions, and how to become a lucky player. The remainder of the book is technical, covering decision making, opening leads, defensive signaling, hand evaluation, and some recommended bidding ideas and approaches.

This second edition contains minor updates and revisions from the original book released in 2020.
