About the Author

Charles H. Goren is the Number One ranking player of the United States in the official ratings of the American Contract Bridge League. He holds virtually every record of note on the books of tournament play. He has won more National Championships than anyone in history and holds the record for the most number of National Championships won in a single year (five). Incidentally, he is the only player in the history of Bridge who has ever won every major championship in the United States.

Mr. Goren's daily column is syndicated in 150 newspapers which have a combined circulation of over twenty-five million. This makes it, of course, the most widely distributed Bridge column in the history of the game.

His books have been translated into French, Spanish, Swedish, and enjoy wide publication throughout the British Empire. His recent book, Point Count Bidding, published by Simon and Schuster, is the most successful Bridge book in the last fifteen years and has changed the bidding habits of millions of players throughout the United States and Europe.

The point count method introduced by Mr. Goren several years ago has now been adopted by all recognized authorities of the game.
