The American Darts Organization Book of Darts has been thoroughly updated and revised for the benefit of the growing ranks of dart players. Darts continues to be among the fastest-growing sports in the world, and this is the book to introduce anyone to the joys of the game. It is estimated that there are over ten million regular players in the United States alone.
The American Darts Organization Book of Darts is your one convenient, clear source for buying darts, tips on play, and the rules of dozens of games. In addition, you'll learn the language of the sport (see glossary) as well as an introduction to websites of interest. This edition has been entirely rewritten and revised with new material throughout, including a new chapter, Tips from the Professionals, in which top-ranked professionals Stacy Bromberg and Steve Brown offer insights on their individual successes and sound advice on mechanics, equipment, and practice.
For its size and price, this remarkably inclusive little book deserves a place next to every dartboard.
