Written by an acknowledged expert, this invaluable book is aimed at archers of all levels, from those starting out in the sport to those taking part in competitions at the highest levels. The author analyses shooting techniques and tuning, and also emphasizes the development of mental toughness; he argues that this goes hand in hand with the mastery of the physical aspects of the sport. This comprehensive guide to shooting covers: how to get started in archery, the costs involved, choosing and using equipment and the basics of shooting; setting up your equipment and initial tuning; the biomechanics of shooting; the tactics and preparation work involved in archery competitions; physical fitness, nutrition and psychology; arrow selection and preparation; making bowstrings; and shooting techniques, improving performance and the fine-tuning of equipment.

The single most useful section simply has to be on set-up, which will (I dare say) be as illuminating for experienced shooters as for novices. We're taken through the very basics through to fine-tuning through a set of valuable explanations and directions. There is an accompanying DVD ("Archery in Action") which is nice to have and helpful when a visual instead of, or as well as, a printed explanation is required; but the book stands on its own -- and does so very well indeed.
Very highly recommended.
This really detracts from what the author is trying to convey. I will buy the print version, as the book itself is great
