'Cross Country Skiing: A complete Guide' is a good looking book starting with its glossy cover. The presentation, format and graphic layout is excellent. It is complete with beautiful color photographs. On the flip side, the content covers cross-country skiing in a superficial manner. Many skiers above a novice level could take issue with the technical correctness of the instruction or diagrams. I can recommend the book to those people new to the sport. More advanced skiers should look beyond the glossy cover.
