Top Customer Reviews
This season my wife joined one of my leagues, and I purchased this book to help her adjustment to the sport. And while it was purchased for her, I found myself reading it as well. Much of what was in there, I already knew (I'm already to a point of preparing the ice for league play), but it never hurts to read what you think you know as confirmation. And, upon occasion, the book added some "that makes sense" thoughts through my head.
If you want to learn the basics and read it in a simplified yet fun way, this book is idea. And even if you've played for a few years and "think you know it anyway" it probably wouldn't hurt to read the book.
It also gives some background and history on alot of the aspects of curling, which help you better understand the sport as a whole. Anyone who thinks curling is easy needs to sit down and read the book and sign up for a class. There's nothing 'easy' or 'dumb' about it, but you will meet alot of very interesting people and gain a new respect for the people who have been doing this their entire lives.
I used it while taking a Curling class here locally....it was great fun, it had all the information I would ever need, and it helped me keep up with the lingo and rules without looking like a total homer....
