Synopsis The first part of Top Shot Mate! is a varied collection of whimsically humorous tales about a mythical bowling club somewhere in Australia. It may even tell of the club to which you belong and bowlers everywhere will readily identify with the characters and situations in the stories. The cartoons are superbly drawn by self-taught artist Chops (Brian) Stanger.

The author, Kenn Rogers, has been a level 1 Coach for several years and, in the final part of the book, draws on this experience in providing a series of eleven well-observed coaching notes.
