Reviews

'When genius meets genius the outcome is perfection. And the two men behind this book fall into that category, as regular Shooting Gazette readers will be well aware.  Giles Catchpole has a unique understanding of the different characters involved in shooting, and with his mischievous sense of humour and understanding of the language, his words give pleasure enough in themselves. However, when united with Bryn Parry's simply superb cartoons, the combination is unstoppable...  Every shooting household should have a copy of this book - it is pure fun and you might just recognise yourselves and your friends in some of the stereotypes.'  Shooting Gazette

All sporting life is here, with wickedly accurate cartoons and laugh-out-loud text. A book that should grace every sporting gent's loo.' BASC Shooting and Conservation
