"Conventions!  At some point we need to learn them, either to incorporate them into our system or to understand what our opponents are communicating in the auction.   The way these books are divided neatly into chapters makes it easy to study one concept at a time, too.  The practice book will round out your learning and I suggest including it if you get books in this set."
