I really learned how to ski using this book. Sure I had three hours of lessons but this book was the main tool I used to get down the slopes in one piece.
I like the authors down-to-earth writing style and the analogies he uses in the book. He articulates a pretty comprehensive background to the gear and the theory behind the movements you need to make on the slope.
What then set this book apart from others are the drills that he introduces to the student to be used to hone their technique on the slope. Instructional books like these cannot be effective unless a skill is broken down to the constituent parts. The author does this fantastically well and this book will help others create and fill a skiers toolbox and release the enjoyment of the slopes for a lifetime.
A must buy for all skiers not just the beginner(like me). An excellent step by step guide that will see you master this sport at no time at all, you will come out a professional. Don't let me hold you back, go out and get your copy now, see you on the slopes.
