I read a lot. I therefore end up buying archery-related books only to be disappointed. One I was not disappointed in is:
Archery Fitness: Physical Training for The Modern Archer by Mr Ashley Kalym Author), Mr Chris Frosin (Photographer)
This book fairly straightforwardly addresses how conventional weight training can up your archery game. I haven’t finished it yet, but I think I will be recommending it for what it does. We needed this book.
Another find is:
The History of Archery by Theodore R. Whitman
I just started this and I have have read a great many books with this same title. Whether it can improve or even add to what I have already read I will have to see.
Modern Archery: Advanced Tuning Techniques by Vernon A Coop
I am going to have to read this again carefully because it seems as if to understand what the author is saying, you have to already know what he is trying to tell you.
This next book is more than a little strange.
Archery: Pull In Better Scores & Results by Tummala, Crystal
This book has very few words (very) and its two recommendations are to apply the Law of Attraction and prayers to improve your archery. I have a problem with one of these two and you will probably be surprised as to which. The Law of Attraction I have no problem with in this context. I think it is basically an application of Bassham’s first law, namely: the more you talk, think, and write about something, the more likely it is to happen. Where I have a problem is with praying for archery improvements. With thousands of children dying from starvation every day and other atrocities occurring worldwide, I find praying for the outcomes of football games or archery performances to be vastly wide of the mark. (Not Recommended)
All of these are available form Amazon.com (Actually, I got The History of Archery on eBay.) and probably not your local bookseller who is being put out of business by Amazon.com.
What’s on your book stand?
