The Bridge Philosopher
by James S. Kauder
(Foreward by Mike Lawrence)

Quality Paperback


List Price: $18.00

238 pgs

While it is true that Terence Reese invented the “over my shoulder” style of card play problem, Jim Kauder has taken it to a new level.

The problems are interesting and the answers logical and informative, but each hand has a connected story, and that's where the fun starts. The author's comments about his partners and opponents are unprecedented, to wit:

“One of the players in my rubber bridge game is a mental midget.” (Hand 9)

“Only a jerk like you could figure a way to go down two on a cold hand.” (Hand 21)

“After considerable research, I discovered that there were half a million bridge players in California, three of whom freely admitted they were not experts.” (Hand 27)

“The unethical player is most effective with his doubles.” (Hand 47)

“Jim Kauder is an expert analyst and has a quirky style. It IS possible to enjoy yourself while you learn to play better bridge.”
