In short, an excellent book.

I've been shooting most of my life, but at distances where wind was not a significant factor. As I've takeng up target shooting at longer distances I've been looking around for literature on wind reading. This is by far the most comprehensive source I've come across.

In my view the book is perfect for novice wind readers, who wish to understand the topic and develop skills to help them read wind successfully.

For more experienced wind readers some of the information may be old konwledge. I do however think that all shooters will benefit from the chapters on 'wind reading process' and 'techniques and tactics'.

Although focus is on reading wind on a range with flags, it should also be interesting for the tactical shooter and long range hunter. The principles of wind reading would be pretty much the same.

To sum up, it's a straightforward and well written book on wind reading. One of the best pieces I've come across and I would recommend it to anyone looking for literature to help them improve their wind reading skills.

If you have one book for wind reading, this should be it. Whether your a novice or experienced wind shooter this book has something for you. It covers how to get wind speed and direction from flags, mirage, and natural phenomenon. The book also details methods for recording shots and improving your shooting and thus your wind reading skills. If your not a consistent shooter, you'll never know if the wind caused your bullet to move or if you did.

I don't understand the negative reviews for this book, whatever you shoot, if you want to be accurate you have to read the wind. Fact, can't argue with that. This book tells you how to read the wind. It does not give ballistics data for hundreds of different rounds or tell you what to do with your rim fire. That is not the purpose of the book, the purpose of the book is to instruct you in how to determine wind speed and direction which it does extremely well. There are all kinds of free ballistics programs out there for your specific round.

This book also outlines various strategies for dealing with wind in competition. I am not a competition shooter, but I still found the information interesting.

The reviewer who said this book is worthless must have something against the authors or Canadians in general. The methods used in this book are also the same methods used in numerous magazine articles and sniper manuals that I have read, from the Army's to the Marines to various civilian books. This book simply puts everything together in a more comprehensive and easier to understand fashion.

In my opinion this is the best book for learning to read wind speed and direction.

I found this book to be something I have needed for quite a while. I have been shooting Long Range for ten 20 years and always had problems with the wind. I would just chase the spotter. This book is makes it all make sense. I have enjoyed this book and keep rereading it as it has so much practical info.

I believe this is a must have book if you are a long range sport shooter.
I compete in F Class Open and when I first purchased this book and read it from cover to cover, it helped me understand wind reading and making accurate scope corrections.
I like helping shooters and this book is what I have recommended to many new and seasoned competitors to help them understand and gain knowledge that I struggled to learn for many years as a beginner in F Class shooting.
Buy this book, read it, put into practice what it tells you, you will not be disappointed.
Regards
Paul Janzso

The Wind Book for Rifle Shooters is an excellent resource. As far as I know this is the only book of its type. It's very well written in a way that's easy to understand for such a complex subject. The charts and graphs are extremely helpful. It's a bit on the short side at about 125 pages but still packed with knowledge. The information contained within this book are not just opinions but tried and true facts. Much of the same information in this text is taught in various sniper training courses that I have attended. This book can make life much simpler for snipers or long distance competition shooters. The wind can be your worst enemy if you don't understand its effect on a bullet in travel. You need this book.

This book is a good beginner or refresher course book.
But it doesn't present any "new" information or ideas.
It is an easy read.
