Martin Hoffman is one of the world's foremost bridge professionals, famed for his ability to achieve high placings even when partnered by a client. The author of several best-selling books, he and his wife Audrey spend the summers in London and the winters in Florida.
David Bird has written over sixty books on the game and is bridge correspondent for the Mail on Sunday and the London Evening Standard. The world's top writer of humorous bridge, David first made his name with stories of the bridge-crazy monks of St Titus.
Martin Hoffman has acquired a legendary reputation for his lightning-quick analysis and play of the cards. He plays professionally around the world and has a fine eye for unusual hands, those that require an unexpected move in the play. David, creator of the famous Abbot series, is the world's best-known writer of humorous bridge fiction. In Bridge for Money he combines with Hoffman to relate the adventures of an American bridge pro, Jerry Blum. Sometimes the professional has to grit his teeth as a client butchers hand after hand. On other occasions Blum is playing with an expert partner against the top players in the game. Hoffman has supplied over one hundred brilliant deals and followers of David Bird will know what to expect from the narrative: a roller-coaster ride - exhilarating, hilarious and instructive.
