Where can I find books by Krzysztof Martens in English? Are they good? They look interesting...

Besides playing for fun, most people also like to play bridge to win

It looks like you can buy them in electronic (and print) format here:

I've read the Virtual European Bridge Championship books by him, they are hard but very good. Would definitely recommend them if you want to improve your technical declarer play.

allan Graves, one of the finest players Canada has ever produced, and a frequent Bridge World MSC panelist, told me about these books in philadelphia this past October. He said Martens is writing the best books on the market and strongly encouraged me to buy them. i couldn't find them at the tournament and didn't do anything about it until I read this thread...I just order 4 of them as ebooks. Will report back after reading.

I tried to buy the set of them (he has a lot) in Orlando, but the bookseller kept saying he was coming and bringing them, but that never happened. I checked twice a day. There is a review of at least one of them in the long Book review thread in this very forum.
