Synopsis Learn bowling techniques from a master. Gain an insight into the tactics top bowlers adopt, and the thinking behind them. World champion bowler Peter Belliss discusses tactics and techniques in this book, illustrating his points with action shots and comments about the styles of top bowlers he has met during his career.

That career, which began as a schoolboy at Wanganui's Aramoho Club, reached a pinnacle when he won the world singles bowling championship at Aberdeen in 1984. Peter Belliss talks about his life and career in a frank and breezy style which anybody interested in bowls will find informative and entertaining.

Bowls is growing in popularity, especially among younger players, and the introduction of professional bowling has added a new dimension to the game. Peter Belliss discusses these changes, evaluates the greens and considers the administration of the game in different countries, giving his candid and sometimes unflattering opinions of them. And in a fascinating chapter he assesses the top players he has met in tournaments throughout the world.
