4.0 out of 5 stars A WAKE UP CALL, 8 Jan. 2014

I would recommend this as essential viewing for everyone. It is time to wake up and take notice of what is happening around you and to you! Mr. Moore presents a personable face in this film and takes you on a tour of the seamy side of modern economic life. He puts across well how Friedmanist, moneterist capitalism is reaching its unworkable end-point and has become ridden and bloated with corruption and threatens to take us down the road to ruin. It is a polemic...but that's what Mr. Moore does. It is up to you how far you go along with him. I would say that the inclusion of religion might not have been a good idea. Many socialists are atheists or agnostics, but then this film is not just for the committed socialist. It is in the end another perspective and I suppose a valid one. Do watch it, whatever your political persuasion...and make up your own mind

If you are a traditional archery obsessive - morbidly so like myself, you will love this book. It carries on well from the previous three volumes by developing topics introduced and described there. It definately requires some technical knowledge and experience on the part of the reader and is for the bowyer who has made and broken a few bows. If you are at that stage i.e. you have a number of bows and sets of arrows to your name but are looking to improve and feel the need for more detailed 'know-how' to progress, then this is the book for you. Having said that, there is a short appendix describing how to make your very first bow which is very good and if you follow it I can't see how you could go wrong barring bad luck. Other chapters take you into the extreme worlds of 'character staves' - for the advanced bowyer and highly technical field of flight archery. There are good chapters also on historical topics such as arrows of the world and Ishi's equipment - which if you are a traditional/primitive archery nut, you will just devour and enjoy - also picking up hints for your own endeavours. The chapter on target archery is valuable - as if you immerse yourself in making bows, your shooting can suffer neglect and a reminder of the basics of shooting consistency and form never goes amiss. On the negative side however, I would say there are alot of facts and figures - which while that doesn't bother me, might put some off. However, it is stuff you would very much benefit by understanding - it may not be for the novice. I summary, I would say - buy the first three first, and then this one. A must for the dedicated enthusiast.
