Author: Gary Brown

Winner of the American Bridge Teachers' Association 2007 Book of the Year award in its original self-published edition, this book has been given a new look and feel while retaining its refreshing approach to teaching bridge. It is designed as a short first course for newcomers to the game. No prior experience is required with any card game, and the ideas are developed in short, easy steps. Includes chapter summaries and practice exercises.

Gary Brown is a Canadian who now lives in Melbourne, where he runs the Brown School of Bridge. A successful tournament player, he is also an experienced high school teacher, an ideal background for his current profession. A regular columnist for two bridge magazines, he is already working on his next book.
