I bought this to give me a bit more of an overview on bouldering after taking a beginner's course.

I've learnt a lot from this, although I felt a bit plunged in the deep end. The author seems to assume readers will be experienced in some other form of climbing. If you're not, I highly recommend looking in the glossary as soon as you find an unfamiliar word. Content wise, it's covered everything I could have asked for: equipment, movement, training techniques, safety etc.

I saw a good review for this book in Rock & Ice magazine and bought it at REI. I've been learning to climb in a gym and wanted to start outdoors with bouldering.

I borrowed this book from a friend who suggested that I read this as my first climbing book because it gives a good overview of the sport. It provides you with a brief history of the sport and the grading system, then moves on to generally discuss different types of moves and the names for those. I wouldn't recommend it for a seasoned climber, but it fit my purposes.

I didn't really learn anything. It gives an overview of the sport but it doesn't get into details of movement, training, etc. Maybe it's impossible to teach movement with a book.
