Reviews for The Magic of Defense Book:
"You've put together a tremendous book - this will take a newer player quickly up to an intermediate skill level, if not beyond, with all of the tools needed to progress even further, provided they make even the slightest effort to absorb the lessons and tips you've provided. The mix of ideas presented in the chapters, and then reinforced with such a tremendous selection of hands, perfect for the topic of the chapter, but also carrying forward themes introduced earlier, with gentle repetition of the most important factors, will be a tremendous learning aid for the ambitious player and for those just wanting to up their game. And you've made the text fun, memorable, and an easy guide to best defense, all at the same time. I can think of many bridge friends I can't wait to introduce to this book. I wish this had been available when I was first trying to get all of this in my head!)"

"I received 2 copies of the Magic of Defense yesterday. I bought one for my partner. I absolutely love this book. I have been baffled by how to think about a hand when on defense. I have read multiple books. This book makes it so clear. Your examples are right on target. I feel like I am having a private lesson with you. I have only given two chapters a review. But I know this is going to unlock so much for me. Thank you."

"I am loving THE MAGIC OF DEFENSE and this morning I chose to put down the new James Patterson novel and continue with MAGIC."
"Your latest book is advertised as your last. That is too bad. It is the best book on Defense that I have seen. This book will have a prominent position in our Bridge Library, right next to “Barbara’s Bridge Tips” and all our other Barbara Seagram’s books? Please keep an open mind about this being your “last” book. And please keep sending out the monthly Bridge Tips and Quiz from you and Alex. It is so helpful. Thanks so much for helping so many Canadians to become better Bridge Players."
