Eddie Kantar's Bridge Humor (Wilshire, 1977) and The Best of Eddie Kantar (Granovetter, 1989) have both been out of print for some years. For this new collection, Eddie has selected the funniest stories from the two previous books, and added a number of new pieces. Drawing on his own vast array of personal experiences, Kantar pokes fun at the top experts, and chronicles the bids and plays they hoped would never come to light (typically, there are more of his own disasters in here than anyone else's). Bridge teachers will relate to the anecdotes from Kantar's bridge classes, and everyone will enjoy his misadventures as a world traveller.

Kantar's two-book series on Bridge Defense (Modern Bridge Defense and Advanced Bridge Defense) won an ABTA Book of the Year Award in 1999. This newer book addresses a more popular topic, using a similar approach. While not a comprehensive treatment of declarer play at bridge, this book deals with specific topics exhaustively, and will be invaluable to the improving player: finesses (when and how to take them, and equally importantly, when to avoid taking them), endplays, eliminations, issues with entries, suit establishment, and counting. Designed to be used by bridge teachers, or by students learning on their own, this book like its predecessors contains a host of features that help the student to grasp the material: clearly laid-out concepts, margin notes, practice hands, chapter-end quizzes, key-point summaries at regular intervals, and an index. Kantar's various beginner books have sold hundreds of thousands of copies, not least because of his unique writing style and the humor that he introduces into the learning process. Eddie Kantar Eddie Kantar (Santa Monica, CA) is one of the most popular and prolific bridge writers in the world. A winner of two World Championships, and a member of the Bridge Hall of Fame, his many books include Modern Bridge Defense, Advanced Bridge Defense, the hilarious Kantar on Kontract, and of course, Roman Keycard Blackwood. His work appears regularly in many bridge magazines around the world.
