John Terence Reese (28 August 1913 – 29 January 1996) was a British bridge player and writer

John Terence Reese (28 August 1913 – 29 January 1996) was a British bridge player and writer. Regarded as one of the finest players, he was also one of the most influential and acerbic of bridge writers, with a large output, including several books which remain in print as classics of bridge play. He was also the long-time bridge correspondent of The Lady, The Observer, the London Evening News and the Evening Standard.

Natural step-by-step method allows you to see the inner logic of game from start. Simple common-sensical chapters on bidding, play and defense, scoring, elementary bridge strategies and how they work. This book is a perennial gem and justly deserves its classic status. Reese is most adept at presenting the world of bridge not just as a mathematical proposition, but a real-life competition against real players who are dying to sacrifice to keep you from making game - and also for players whose partner is a bit of a doofus. There are many excellent books written by many bridge experts.

Another good beginners' book is Terence Reese' Bridge for Bright Beginners. It's a small book, but gets the beginner off to a great start. One characteristic I like about this book (which would lead to the only complaint I have about 5 Weeks) is that it starts combining bidding and play immediately, so that when you're bidding you understand the objective in the play to which you are striving.

Terence Reese, "the world's best bridge player and best bridge writer" (The New York Times), turns his attention in this book to you, the bright beginner. He gives a complete guide to the game with sample bidding and sample game play and coverage of everything the beginner needs, from point count bidding to finesses, to make bridge the exciting, competitive game it is.Mr. Reese isn't content with presenting rules the beginner will later abandon. Instead he builds up the game in simple steps with chapters on opening bids of one, responses, defensive overcalls, opening bids of more than one, play and defense in no trump, play and defense in suit, scoring, and so on, until the game is taught as you can expect to play it against strong competition. In the course of the book you will learn the common terms used in bridge, the fundamentals of offensive and defensive bidding and play, the reasons why bridge strategies work, and how to use such popular conventions as the Blackwood and the Stayman. Altogether you will have had experience evaluating 130 normal bidding hands and playing through 18 sample games. An index and summary of bidding at the end also make the book useful as an instant reference for later use.Both the bright beginner and the player who has had some experience will want to use this book to learn the fundamentals of bridge and increase his ability to establish best possible bid and play. For a further competitive advantage and even more bridge fun, you will also want to read Reese's other bridge books, Bidding a Bridge Hand and Play Bridge with Reese.

Terrible Kindle version. You cannot see 90% of the hands that are discussed, rendering the book all but useless. Even with the Kindle set to a large font size, the hands are still imperceptible because they have been transferred in an incredibly small font. Oddly, about 10% of the hands or play situations are in the same size font as the text so they are readable. Why this is not the case for the other 90% of the hands is a mystery. There are also a few evident typos in the text.
The only thing that you will learn for this Kindle version is frustration. Save your money (even if it is only $2!)

I purchased this because it was the only reasonably priced bridge book available for Kindle. It feels dated because it is not as interactive as a bridge program I downloaded. To use this book you have to lay out the individual hands as you are led through the thought process in bidding. This is laborous. I would strongly recommend, that instead of buying this book that a I Pad user download an interactive tutorial.

If you have a bright beginner this is a great book. If you have a quitter, it is not.
