Words not pretty pictures,
This review is from: llustrated Guide to Snowboarding (Paperback)
i actually thought this was an excellent book, i have a martial arts background and some of the descriptions and use of mental imagery etc are something i can relate to. Remember the mind controls the body (most of the time!). This isnt a book full of nice pictures, actually the illustrations are pretty bad but the knowledge behind them is very usefull. You have to READ this book rather than looking at big glossy pictures that explain things visually.
Ive put some of the ideas into practice and can say it definatly helps. Understanding the way your body works in relation to center of gravity/balance and the snowboard is key to improving your snowboarding i think.
