|Synopsis||This is the first time a comprehensive view of the game of bowls has been presented which enables the reader, even if he has never stepped on to a bowls green, to understand precisely what the game is all about.
Two specific objectives are achieved. Firstly, study of the book will make it possible for the reader to enjoy watching any game of bowls and, at top level, will enable him fully to appreciate every move that is made. Secondly, the somewhat complicated rules are presented in a form that makes them easy to understand. Normally a novice is introduced to the fundamentals of the game and expected to pick up the rules haphazardly as he goes along. As a consequence many bowlers can play for years without a complete knowledge of the rules. For the novice this disability is now removed.
