From the cover: “Bridge is first and foremost a game of deduction. The methods of reasoning used by the successful player are in fact precisely those which gained Sherlock Holmes his immense reputation. Frank Thomas, one of the world’s leading authorities on the teaching of bridge, has written a book, in collaboration with George Gooden, which is both entertaining and highly instructive. They show how many of the key bids and play now in common use by good players were originally devised by Sherlock Holmes, using his deductive powers in an epic bridge battle in partnership with Doctor Watson.”
