It outlines the law as it relates to shooting and also includes chapters on behaviour in the field, the role of gundogs and the part played by gamekeepers in habitat and game management. It should be required reading for anyone who owns a sporting shotgun.

"Let me start this review by saying I very much enjoyed this book for several reasons. Firstly, its content is right on the money for anyone getting into or involved in the sport of shooting. Secondly, it is written in non-technical terms that the layperson can understand. And thirdly, its compact size and robust binding – it fits neatly into the vehicle glove box or shooting bag. Well done to BASC (The British Association for Shooting and Conservation) and all those who were part of its production." - Gary Creighton, British Country Sports
