    I am not very fond of the book. The writing is broken down into small sections often with little or no flow between them.
    Also the author does just as the reviews suggest. He praises that which he agrees with and bashes that which he doesn't.
    To the point that the good points he makes are lost amongst the poor writing and less than agreeable way of holding certain practices
     over others in terms of value. If he had limited this to phrasing that indicated that it was more his opinion than fact I would have been
     more inclined to accept much of what he wrote. Such as one of the things he regularly bashes is hunters who buy and make
     use of 'gadgets'. While I see his point to one extent, I know that to develop the level of expertise that you should have to not use those
     'gadgets' can be so daunting as to prevent people from trying hunting to begin with. If you need a GPS for in the woods, take one.
    If your level of expertise requires a modern crossbow with a scope, use it. If that is what it takes for you to land a clean ethical shot
     then by all means use the technology you can afford. The idea of using such 'gadgets' seems to be a bridge he cannot cross.
    A hard line I just do not see as he does.

    There are some nice stories that help put you into his practice, but not enough to fill out the book and increase the overall value
    I was able to take from it. Perhaps if I was not already a hunter I would have taken more from the book.
