I would have like more tips and actual techniques on getting the "shooting" action sports such as specialized gear and cable systems employed in every single action sports flick no the market today. To devote only five pages to "action sport" specific shooting techniques for a book called "Shooting Action Sports" makes the title a misnomer.

Todd Grosman has a wealth of knowledge in this area and comes so highly recommended that block buster Action Director Rob Cohen uses him on all his films to shoot his Making of Documentaries.
In a nut shell Todd knows what he is writing about because he actually uses these techniques to make him one of the best in the business!
I recommend this book to any sports enthusiast who want concise and clear instruction for thrilling and multi-dimensional photography.
More books should be written this well.
