Printed on the front cover is the following: "The easiest, simplest and quickest way to learn contract bridge. For Beginners, 'Palookas,' and others seeking a method that is easy to grasp, easy to remember, and which does not change from year to year." The following is an excerpt from a section titled "About Sam Gordon" by Russell H. Peters of The Post-Intelligencer: "A few days ago I was an amused and interested listener to a conversation between a veteran and skillful bridge player and one of his friends who had finally decided he would learn to play the game. ... 'I would very seriously recommend,' the old-timer said with great earnestness, 'that you learn the Horse Sense System. It is by far the simplest system going; it gives you everything you need, and you can use it with Culbertson players.' As a matter of fact, that pretty well tells the story of Horse Sense bridge, and why the father of the system writes a daily bridge column for the Post-Intelligencer. Sam Gordon, who is an amazing character in that he was an exceptional businessman before he became a bridge teacher, has one fundamental theory--bridge is really a simple game which has been complicated by experts who write books. It is Sam Gordon's contention that the only persons who believe bridge difficult are those who have learned highly involved systems. He will tell you that his young pupils find it easy to understand. ... The Post-Intelligencer has arranged with Mr. Gordon to distribute his little handbook on Horse Sense Bridge."
