"""As a long-time compound shooter I was surprised to find myself intrigued with portions of this book aimed at recurve shooters. It was fascinating and insightful to learn some new perspectives, which I am sure I will put to use when playing with my recurve."

There are 14 chapters which cover numerous different aspects of the sport from advanced recurve form to the best way to test new equipment. It tries to provide a good balance between recurve and compound shooting, and on the whole it does maintain that balance.
Some of the chapters may not be totally applicable to you, if for instance you shoot recurve you may not wish to read about tuning compounds - however don't be so sure for that particular chapter had one of the clearest explainations of how fletchings work that I have ever encountered.
Every intermediate archery should either buy this book or should pester their club into buying it for them.
There are some excellent explanations as to how some methods are better than others but the explanations are uneven- some easy to follow - some need a diagram which is sometimes forthcoming in a different part of the book. Many of the points are made over and over again so it can appear a little too wordy and repetitive. It needs a good editor to whittle away some of the chaff and a bullet-pointed summary at the end of each chapter would be useful. This has the makings of a good book; a pity at times I was only reading the second draft. Nevertheless I would recommend it to intermediate recurve and compound archers.
That’s exactly what this book is about, making those changes that will shift you from an average archer to a competition winning archer, if that’s what you want. Steve Ruis and Claudia Stevenson are the editors of this archery manual. The content is a series of collected articles that have been previously published in Archery Focus Magazine. There is a US flavour to the contents and it covers Compound as well as Recurve.Read more ›
