That way, you can get an unbiased perspective of the tome prior to plunking down your hard-earned cash. No one wants to waste their money on drivel.

Book: The Columbus Book of Euchre
Author: Natty Bumpo
Year: 1982, 1999
Rating: 4 out of 5 chickens

Overall: This is a must have euchre book. If you can get past the “homey” look and odd organization, you’ll discover a wealth of information that will make even the worst euchrehead better.

Book: Win at Euchre
Author: Thomas A. Gallagher
Rating: 2 out of 5 chickens

Overall: This book has some interesting content including a unique point system for evaluating your hand. However, it is also disorganized, complicated and way overpriced for what you get. It's worth reading but don't expect much.

Overall euchre rating

This is a good book and should be part of everyone's euchre card strategy library. It is filled with basic rules, strategy tips, quizzes, euchre profiles and a list of interesting situational hands. With a bit better organization, more in-depth analysis and less superfluous information this could be an excellent book.
