To Bid or Not to Bid: The Law of Total Tricks

Larry Cohen

Natco Press 1992
A book review by Danny Yee © 1993
An introductory bridge book, To Bid or Not to Bid is a thorough explanation of the law of total tricks and its utilisation. It is pitched at a level that makes it accessible to the average club player, but experts who haven't seen a clear formulation of the law before may also find it interesting. Much of the book is taken up with examples of the law in action, all from high level competition, presented clearly, with diagrams repeated if necessary so that they are always visible when appropriate. To Bid or Not to Bid is an easy book to read and one with a very simple message, but it is also a book which will bear rereading.

July 1993
