Here at last is a sports book of interest not only to the enthusiast in any sporting activity but to all the family.

The blurb is accurate - here all sports are looked at - from Archery to Water Ski-ing. Each is described in all its forms - skills needed, equipment needed, regulations and how to get started if interested - really fascinating stuff.
(I am one of the least sports-orientated people on the planet and I found several here that tempt me - I wish I'd found the book fifty years ago ! - John)
