The established classic on inferential reasoning in bridge. Deduction is the process of working out what logically follows from facts known or assumed. Psychologists rate deductive reasoning as central to human intelligence and Albert Dormer believes that it is the use of this faculty in bridge that gives players their satisfaction. So why do they so often fail to make the right deductions? The answer lies in correct thinking and in asking the right questions. Albert Dormer, internationally respected both as a player and as a writer of great distinction, shows how, through the use of deduction, bridge players can greatly enhance their card play and enormously increase their pleasure in this fascinating game. DORMER ON DEDUCTION is a brilliant book, lucidly written and packed with practical advice.
Albert Dormer died in March 2014. Not only was he an international bridge champion player and Bridge Reviewer for THE TIMES, but he was also one of the world's leading bridge writers with a string of remarkable books to his credit. He lived near Inverness in Scotland.
