'A delightful bridge book which is as amusing and droll as it is instructive.' - English Bridge.
DOUBLED AND VENERABLE is the third title in Terence Reese's and David Bird's collection of stories about the bridge-playing monks of St Titus whose exploits delight readers the world over.
The huge success of these books lies not only in their being extremely funny but also in their being instructional as they are crammed with gems of bridge bidding and play.
'DOUBLED AND VENERABLE is a splendid buy to cheer these politically-saturated days. It is entertainment of the highest quality.'
- Oxford Times.
