How to Read Your Opponent’s Cards- Mike Lawrence is concerned less with how to play your hand than with how to think about playing. The idea is to minimize risk by deducing where your opponent’s high cards are. Lawrence shows how to spot and interpret clues from the opening bid on with chapters titled “Sizing Up the Case,” “Finding the Witness,” “Analyzing the Clues,” “Conducting the Investigation,” “Checking the Evidence,” “Nailing Down the Case,” and “Making Your Sixth Sense Work.” The latter deals with watching your opponent’s body language for the “tells” that reveal their thoughts involuntarily. Each chapter but the last features a quiz section to help you practice techniques.

Arrived in excellent shape. The text is not for the novice but for the intermediate or advanced bridge player. Since I am at a higher level I found the book very interesting and informative.
The book is excellent, teaching more about play of the hand than any that I have read. Lost my first copy, probably a loan not returned. Really needed the book. So much in it, I needed to refresh my memory.
