    This book is really well written as a beginner's guide. I am a novice and found it useful. I appreciate how concisely it is written and it doesn't have a bunch of extra "stuff" written in that would distract from the intent of the book. I highly recommend this to my friends (and fellow readers) who are wanting to get started with basic rifle marksmanship.

    Good information, incomplete and hampered by the scanning process

    This could have been a better book. It probably is better in print, but the scanning process did not bring the pictures in well and some of the text got cut off.

    Even so, the explanation of how to assume the positions is not very detailed and coupled with pictures that are really too small in the nook application to easily viewed, this book is less useful that I hoped.
