Summary: Welcome to this edition of the Bowler's Guide! This version has been expanded and updated from previous editions to make it a more complete book and a resource to use over and over. In addition, we have organized it into chapters so the guide is perfect for use as a bowling class textbook. In this book you will find a brief overview of the history of bowling along with information about the "playing field" and basic skill information. We have used the expanded format to begin to teach information that grows beyond the basics. This will help you develop your own style and be introduced to some challenges that you will face as your skill improves. Also listed are helpful resources and organizations that may be of help to you as you continue to improve and enjoy bowling.
