Go Ahead, Laugh!

Bridge Humor by Jude Goodwin

Jude Goodwin’s Table Talk cartoons have been appearing for more than 30 years in the American Contract Bridge League’s Bulletin. They capture life the way it really is at the bridge table, whether you play in tournaments or with your family in the kitchen. Jude will make you laugh at yourself for taking this game so seriously.

“This delightful collection will be enjoyed by bridge [players] of all levels. Each page brought smiles to my face as I encountered humorous situations that made me want to say ‘Been there, did that! Know how that feels.’ This book should help readers keep their perspective in remembering that bridge is still a game. It would make a terrific gift for partner’s and bridge-playing friends.”

– Dee Berry, American Bridge Teachers Association Quarterly
