- Runner-up in the intermediate/advanced category was Planning the Defense by Barbara Seagram and David Bird.
Two books were honored with the special Legacy Award, which recognizes efforts to make outstanding but out-of-print titles available to a new generation of bridge players.
Originally published in 1968, these classics were revised and updated by Barbara Seagram to incorporate modern bidding and play ideas.
