This is THE BOOK that every strong bridge player in the world has studied. Louis H. WATSON, the author of this book, was rated as one of the ten outstanding Bridge players in the world by all experts and authorities. Collier's Magazine of March 24,1934, ranked Mr. Watson as No. 4 player. Ely Culbertson considered Mr. Watson "among two or three authorities really qualified to write on Bridge, because he is a master player, a great analyst and a fine writer-all in one." For many years Mr. Watson was closely associated with Mr. Culbertson as, Technical Editor of The Bridge World Magazine. As Bridge Editor of The New York Post, Mr. Watson wrote daily for this newspaper and associated newspapers. The Post said: "Even more than for his skill, and his Bridge trail-blazing, Mr. Watson deserves a special niche among Bridge masters. For he is a Bridge expert who can also write. He can make the most complex and critical Bridge situation as clear as simple honors." MR.
