Not modern, but informative 1 Mar. 2002
By Randy Baldwin - Published on
Format: Paperback
Though out of print at this time, I bought this book a couple of years ago and think it deserves a review here. The fact is, there are no really modern books about the game, books that give an idea about modern/electronic play and innovations, but this short text has a solid historical overview. Like several other books currently available, it is from a British perspective and dates from the late 1970's. Unlike several others, it doesn't pretend to teach you how to win, at least not past the anecdotal story at the beginning from some past champion. As we all know, improving at darts is simply a matter of practice. This book, though, has information about various past styles of dartboard and a refreshingly nonconformist chapter on the history of the game. One gets the impression that the author would not be happy with the current state of darts as a coin-op/Americanized bar game! Worth a look if you know what to expect.
