Extremely helpful and accessible book
November 5, 2017
I'm a beginning archer but have attended a number of beginner classes, researched online and borrowed a fair number of books on archery. This book was one of the more useful and accessible books for a beginner and perhaps something worth keeping around as a reference. The author explains all (or most) of the necessary verbiage of sport, the parts of the bow and arrows and their functions, and how to develop good form. The book is mostly focused on recurve archery (barebow and Olympic). The book also has some resourceful appendixes in the end to help choose arrows, strings, etc.
The book is sort of a technical manual to archery. Technical manuals aren't the most of exciting of reads but the author does a great job of using clear language to help the reader through the technical elements of archery. At the same time, he writes with a bit of heart to keep the beginning archer realistic and persistent in this new endeavor.
This is definitely one of my better purchases in my entry into the sport of archery.
