Book and e-book reviews

This e-book is a hidden treasure! It covers everything I wanted to know about traditional bows, and how to build one. I especially liked the short historical background to each section. Now to the workshop..

Woking, England

The book was easy to follow and told me everything I needed to know. I have never done anything like this before and I found it easy and fun to do. The video’s were great to watch when doing the more complex aspect.

Wigan, England

This is the most well done work of it's kind, worth paying for. I value what you've done and recognise your labor and expense in making the book and videos. Thank you!

Montana, USA

This e-book is very well writen. I wish I would have had this book when I made my first bow. This will be an excellent addition to my library of bow making.

Georgia, USA

I know that a lot of work went into research and coordination to get all the links to function demonstrating a traditional craft. I could have used it years ago while working with osage flat bows. Video segments included are worth the price. This book is as advertised and a worthy addition to any library.

Louisiana, USA

I have read the book with great interest. I am a Luthier, (musical instrument maker), and have been interested in making a bow for myself for some time now. This is the book I should have bought a long time ago. I would own a bow by now. I can't wait to get to the timber yard and get started. The book has everything I need to know. I just hope my first endeavour will be good enough.

Valencia, Spain

I am new to bow building and have checked out loads of sites to get information but this e-book is the best that I have come across and well worth the money. I'm certain that my bow building will improve with all the help that is available within this e-book. My congratulations on producing such a well written book, many thanks!

Houghton-le-Spring, England

Now I believe that even I could make a bow.

Pia, E.A.

Many thanks for your excellent & prompt help! I think the e-book is really great and the videos are worth their weight in gold!

Brighton, England

Thank you for a great book! I really like the thorough descriptions of the different types of bows that you can build. That way I can get started with an easy type of bow and advance later. I also like that all the details are very precise. I’m sure the end result will be excellent! I’m a hunter so it was very interesting to read and learn about the amount of damage an arrow can cause on the target.

Esko, QA Director.

Very good book lots of useful information...

Kansas, USA

I loved the book! It's full of great tips which helped me make my first bow. Thanks for writing such a great book!

Obidos, Portugal

I am new to bow making and have spent lot of time looking at YouTube and other sites. As I am just starting to build number 1, a  traditional longbow, this is the best e-book I have found. Very clear instructions with good video clips and diagrams and easy to follow.

Kent, England

A unique and very helpful feature that can only be provided in an eBook is the mix of verbal instruction, high quality color photos, and video instructions. The videos are very well done and show you exactly what the required steps are and how to do them. The video links are in-line with the text, so it is very easy to watch the video and then go right back to where you were in the text. Highly recommended!!
