Although I enjoy all things shooting, I found this book to be a little disappointing. It book was first written in the 1980's and this seems to be an updated & revised version. Whilst it contains interesting and useful information on some of the great shoots throughout our country's history, most of them have since been broken up into smaller shoots and do not exist as they once did. Accordingly I think that the book takes on too much; I suggest that the book would have been better split into 2 books: the great shoots which exist now, or the great shoots of the past. The book, to me, falls between two stools.
I think that the book deals with far too many shoots. Furthermore, you do not get much of a sense of what the shoots were like and in particular photos of the great shoots seem conspicuous by their absence. The photos which are in the book are of, largely, 1980's teams of guns who have probably passed on by now. There are also shoots included with no reason for their inclusion given in the text, such as Coombe Abbey in Warwickshire. The text also reads like a 1980's book.
Whist a little disappointing, a useful addition to the shooting library nonetheless.
