This book shoots straight to the heart of the matter. It doesn't try to impress you with "gnarly" terms, it lays it out plain and simple. This book will help you to streamline your learning curve so you get surfing with as little frustration and embarrassment as possible (some is inevitable of course). Check this book out. It's worth it.
