The Rosary and you-A Perfect Match
The introduction section tells the author's story of how he came to know and love the Rosary, why he wrote The Rosary Handbook, and answers the question of who can Pray the Rosary. Which of course is anyone, but the author has a very interesting way of showing this point.

This would be an excellent gift for someone in the RCIA program or someone who is interested in understanding the Rosary. The Rosary Handbook: A Guide for Newcomers, Old-Timers, and Those in Between
One book that I like is: The Rosary Book by John Cardinal Carberry -$4.50 Amazon. This book is simple, easy to read and presents the background, the how-to and some example meditations on the rosary prayers.
The Rosary Handbook is accurate, academic in tone, and informative. But it is not complete since it does not reveal the Catholic belief in the rosary's true power-- which is to take hopeless, desperate situations and thru this prayer bring about miraculous, unexplainable changes. As well as the fact that it has been give a unique power and promise to transform and convert individuals who have lost their faith, hope and trust.
The author could have also mentioned the fifteen promises for those who pray this prayer to give an example of its unique value and why it is not just another prayer form.
For those not familiar with the Fatima apparitions the following book is one suggestion.Calls from the Message of Fatima
