    An Absolute Must for Any Archer!!!!

    This book is incredible. I have read through it several times and I keep it with me at the range as a reference. It walks the reader through everything including the beginnings of setting up a new bow, to tuning to the mental aspect of archery. I love how the author goes into depth on common errors, what at happens to your arrows when things go wrong and how to fix these mistakes. The book is extremely well organized and explains the sport from several different perspectives in order to capture both experienced and new shooters. AMAZING!!
