Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

The book is so much more enjoyable if you HAVE a rifle, a good rifle, that you can practice with as you read through the book to develop many of the little skills that Cooper covers. Little .223 carbines, or 7.62 by 39 AK's are probably not the type of firearm to covet because this book will do little for you. This book is about rifles. M-14's. Garands. Lee Enfields. Mausers. Something with power, punch, and the ability to go way out there.
But if that's your interest, this book won't let you down.
My only quibble is that the cover of this paperback book always curls no matter the temperature or humidity. It's not something I can just leave flat on a table without something to hold it down!
The biggest flaw I saw was some erroneous info on physics - if you have studied physics you will fall out of your chair when you read the part about recoil of smooth bore vs rifled barrels. The author not only gets it wrong but he off starts by ripping on the lack of physics know how among shooters.
