Format: Hardcover
This book is in my opinion an excellent guide for beginners. I was my first book on the subject and I can highly recommend it. All aspects of clay shooting are covered, both the technical details as well as equipment, rules, tips & tricks and training advice. It has a well balanced view on different shooting methods and does not favor any particular style or technique. I like that because some authors (like John Bidwell) spend too many pages praising their own approach to clay shooting.
The book is very well illustrated and easy to read. You can jump back and forward between chapters, which can be read independently. It has a good bibliography section and a special chapter on the mental aspects of shooting.
All together a good investment, that you can use as a reference. I would expect that the more advanced and experienced shooters could also benefit from studying this book.
This hardcover print is of high quality (photos, paper quality).

Format: Hardcover
i got a copy of chris batha's book at the same time as i started shooting clays for the first time, and boy, have i progressed in leaps and bounds. while the book helped me de mystify clay shooting, returning back to it after a round on the range often helps me pick up another tip or two that helps me more.
the language is generally crisp, but what i like most are the illustrations.they are colourful and very well laid out, and very explanatory.
being keen to shoot olympic skeet and trap , i was a bit dissappointed to find onlysmall chapters devoted to them. yet, this book has helped me improve my game, and i'd recommend it to every beginner!

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Mr. R. Bailey on 6 Feb. 2010
Format: Hardcover
Intelligently written by a very experienced coach who is not grinding his own axe, which is less usual than it should be. This is the first book I have come across that covers all the bases necessary for the novice shooter wanting to understand the principles of clay target shooting with the shotgun without wandering off into obscurity or unecessary complexity. It has relevant chapters on all the main topics you need to know, and they are eminently clear and concise with good illustrations, with additional information valuable to those improving in the sport. If I was to recommend a single volume to a newcomer or early improver to clay target shooting it would be this one without a shadow of a doubt.

Format: Hardcover
I am new to clay shooting and my scores are still a bit poor. I went for a few rounds of DTL today, having read one chapter of the book which dealt with trap shooting. The advice on gun hold position was a revelation, and my lowest score was 21ex25, highest 23ex25; my best score so far. I shall be reading the chapters concerning sporting clays with great interest! If you're new to shooting, this book is a must.

Format: Hardcover
I found this book an excellent guide to the sport with loads of information on the more technical asspects of clay shooting. It is a first class reference source which I am sure I will return to time and time again. It is well laid out and provides interesting facts on everything from the history of the sport to tips for choosing a gun.
Highly recommended reading for anyone who's starting out or has been shooting a while and wants to improve their score.

Format: Hardcover
Excellent book on clay shooting. Very complete and comprehensive, does not focus on one pet technique and covers a lot of very useful ancillary material. If you are after a first book I do not think there is better option out there. If you are a more experienced shooter and could use some help putting it all together, this is highly recommended.
I can't speak highly enough of Chris Batha's instruction style. Check out a couple of his video clips online to see how he works.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book when I took up shooting earlier this year. Although I had taken some lessons I only really understood some of the basics once I had read this book - in particular the concept of shooting with both eyes open and looking at the target and not the barrels.
As I have progressed with my shooting I still refer to "The Book" to refresh my knowledge and to dip into the many hints and tips on various targets.
I have met many experienced shots who also use "The Book" on a regular basis.
It is a good read; well presented; and written in very clear language. If you are a clay shooter, buy this book.
