Larry Wise - the Archer's Archer. If you are a beginner or an expert, you need to read everything Larry Wise has written. I have taken lessons from him personally in back tension and read all his books. Larry is a retired maths teacher and knows how to structure archery in a logical method conducive to learning. He also can tune and fit your bow so that you can focus on technique and not worry if the equipment is at fault.

I am a certified instructor and Larry is someone I would go to, to improve my own shooting technique.

Just What I Needed. Taking up archery after a too long hiatus, I needed a source of information for all of the new technology that has come on the market in recent years. The knowledge that I gained from this book allowed me to select the compound bow that was right for me, along with the accessories that made shooting the bow a pleasure.

An excellent introductory book. Larry Wise gives pieces of priceless advice for beginners.
