Why you still lose at bridge by Julian Pottage( Book )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and Chinese and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

S.J. Simon's classic bridge text book Why You Lose at Bridge, dispensing advice to the improving card player through archetypical bridge-playing characters such as Futile Willie, the Unlucky Expert, and Mrs. Guggenheim, is regarded as one of the best books ever written on the game. In this follow-up book, Julian Pottage uses the same approach to discuss common failings of modern club players - mis-describing your shape, overvaluing your hand, bidding the wrong slam, playing a flawed system, giving the wrong signal, making losing leads, and many more
Bridge squeezes complete; or, Winning end play strategy by Clyde E Love( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the original foreword to the 1959 edition of Bridge Squeezes Complete, Woodson and Norwood wrote, "We confidently predict that this work will become an all-time classic." The book has lived up to this claim, unlocking the mysteries of squeeze play for players of all levels, and appearing on most published lists of "the top ten bridge books ever written." Love's system of classifying squeezes has been used by most writers who have succeeded him. However, a classic, like a Renaissance painting, may eventually need restoration. The game of bridge has changed a great deal in the past fifty years, and bridge theorists have built on Professor Love's foundation to advance our knowledge and understanding of squeeze play. With respect and appreciation for Love's original accomplishment, Linda Lee and Julian Pottage have revised the book, making it more accessible for today's reader. Little is now "left as an exercise for the reader." A substantial number of new examples have been added, bringing to light the areas of trump squeezes, entry squeezes and non-material squeezes.In this new edition, Bridge Squeezes Complete will be as valuable to the modern player as the original was to its readers half a century ago
