Interesting, but slow. I expected more of a how-to manual with best practices, enhanced by the occasional personal story to drive home a point or illustrate a principle. Instead it's mostly random personal recollections that the author associates with archery, but on the whole have very little to do with conveying anything useful to the reader. The tone is overly nostalgic to the point of annoyance, and language seems far too formal and flowery for the content of the phrases.

The appendix at the back does contain useful information for the archer.
