Synopsis John Snell is Australia's best-known bowls personality. His enormous success in club, state, national and international competition makes him the ideal coach and instructor for every player, from novice to experienced club member.

Following constant requests from bowls clubs all around Australia and the great success of his best-selling Winning Bowls, John Snell has produced a book of succinct and down-to-earth advice on how to lift your game in fours and pennant play - and how to make the most of your position on the team and get the best out of your teammates. To add to the pleasure of reading a master of the game in complete control of his subject matter, every bowls player will enjoy the hilarious cartoons by WEG [William Ellis Green]*.


*William Ellis Green was the Melbourne Herald's cartoonist for 40 years and signed his cartoons WEG; he was arguably one of the world's fastest caricaturists.
