These four are the first of many I am working on. Each 24-page booklet is printed on glossy paper, with specially made covers to resist wear and tear and provide you with years of use. The 4 by 8 inch dimensions are the same as one side of a convention card.The retail price for each booklet is $9.95.
Each booklet comes with a clear heavy-gauge vinyl jacket (nothing at all like the flimsy plastic convention card holder). The made-to-order jacket that accompanies each booklet has both a large pocket and a smaller outside pocket, which allows flexibility for storing and reading. There is also plenty of room to hold your convention card. The full-color booklets are attractive and are full of helpful tips and crucial concepts that will prove invaluable for any player. While you’re at home, you can glance through them or read intently. In addition, the compact size and protective jacket make the booklets both portable and durable. You can carry them with you to a duplicate game, on your lunch break, at the doctor's office, or anywhere you go where you might have time on your hands. Also, as several players suggested, "Great to refer to while playing on-line."Keep your partners in mind when ordering.
Not only do you pay a lot less for additional booklets ordered, but your partnership will definitely benefit the most if both partners learn and discuss the material together.

Marty, as well as others who are familiar with the booklets, believe that "once you try 'em, you'll like 'em." One player went to his local bridge club, discussed the booklets and displayed the excerpts, and quickly had orders for 22 booklets. Here is what Larry Cohen wrote about Marty's new series of booklets: "You'll find yourself referring to these all the time."
