Congratulations to this year's winner of the 2011 ABTA Book of the Year Award:

Bridge with Bells and Whistles

by Mary Ann Dufresne & Marion Ellingsen

Level: Beginner

Publisher: Master Point Press

There are plenty of bridge books for serious players, and also a number of books for raw beginners. However, very little has been published for the player who has completed the Basic course and is now ready to add a few ‘bells and whistles’ to his or her game. This book conducts a thorough review of all the bidding ideas and concepts encountered in a Beginner course on bridge, and takes the reader beyond them, gently but firmly. The reader’s ideas on bidding will be refined, and a number of useful conventions suitable for this level of player are described and recommended. The material is written by two very experienced teachers, and includes features such as end-of-chapter reviews and quizzes to help reinforce the concepts.

For Bridge Teachers: Be sure to download your free lesson plan, The Magic of Singletons and/or purchase additional teacher support materials for Teaching Bridge with Bells and Whistles.
