Successful Archery - in easy stages
on 15 December 2011
As a neophyte, I enjoyed thus book. It was just what I was hoping for. Before receiving the book, the nearest I had come to archery instruction was the odd Robin Hood film, some very odd indeed but this seemed just what Robin himself might have read somewhere in the depths of Sherwood, although I am not sure he would have recognised some of the bows described.
It is a step-by-step guide to beginner's archery and, if along the way, the wrong step is taken, there is a section on spotting and curing the typical faults. The illustrations are not what I have become used to in some expensive golf books by the top players who use very fast, motion-stopping cameras but, since the motions are not very fast (arrow excluded), there is no reason for anything other than the effective line-drawings it has.
If what readers are looking for is a book to take them through the basics of beginners archery in sensible, well-described stages, this is the book for them. (It also cured me of the Robin Hood impersonations!) Recommended.
