Product description

Review

The Bluffer s Guides present the means to apparent instant erudition without actually having to know or study anything. --Daily Mail

An amazing amount of solid fact disguised as frivolous observation. --The Sunday Telegraph

An avalanche of laughs. Prepare to be swept away by a clever mix of humour and surprisingly useful information. --Frank Baldwin, Editor, Skier & Snowboarder

About the Author

David Allsop was introduced to skiing at the age of five on a rudimentary monoski down the slopes of a slag heap. He spent the next 30 years scrupulously avoiding anything to do with sliding downhill. After trial careers in occupations as diverse as growing beansprouts and working as a barrister, he found his niche amid the peaks and troughs of freelance journalism adding ski-writing to his formidable portfolio of areas of professed expertise. By dint of bluff and good luck he has managed to ski, at little cost to himself, in more than 300 resorts with a style that was once described by a member of the Compagnie des Guides as comme une vache espagnole (like a Spanish cow), which he chooses to regard as a rare example of French irony. The Alliance des Moniteurs de Ski du Canada knows better; it allowed him to qualify as a ski instructor in 2004. Curiously this does not seem to have made him any more attractive to the opposite sex.
