The late Terence Reese, perhaps the greatest bridge write of all time, introduced the "over-the-shoulder' style of bridge writing in his classic "Play These Hands with Me". In his wry homepage to the master, Horton leads the reader through a plausibly logical line of play on each instructive deal, but one that ends in failure. In each post-mortem, the "expert" realizes he could have improved on his play, and (usually) have made his contract. The deals are all fromt he top-class events, which prove to be a remarkably fertile source of such material. A book filled with subtle humor and great bridge.
