5.0 out of 5 stars.  An excellent source for recurve shooting., January 10, 2017
By Gary M.
If you are interested in improving your recurve shooting, this will meet your needs. From the physical aspects of archery stance, drawing, release etc. all facets are throughly covered. The book offers a general section for those wishing a review of shooting technique as well as an in depth analysts of each step in the archery process. The more comprehensive section is written by Kisik Lee a very distinguished archery coach.

The mental, physical training and wining aspects off the sport are also discussed. These are very valuable as well. If you don't have access to a qualified coach this book is a good substitute. Compound bow technique, equipment and bow tuning are less well covered. There are better resources available available on the Internet for these subjects. I specifically recommend Dudley/Utube compound release, Archery supplies, compound bow reviews Utube, and the Easton tuning guide available via a free internet download.

4.0 out of 5 stars.  Great book if you like archery..., October 15, 2016
By CCS
It’s a very good book for anyone interested in archery. I’ve been away from the sport due to an injury for about 10 years after winning three state championships shooting a compound. I have purchased a new recurve and am starting lessons with a level 4 certified instructor who suggested this book. I’m amazed at how much has changed, and how much has been learned in the time I’ve been away. They only down side to the book, is that it’s written by several different experts and lacks some cohesiveness. Other than that, it’s highly recommended!
