|Synopsis||This is an unusual publication in several ways: the author adds her name to a very short list of ladies who have written books on bowls and, to my knowledge, it's the first in this select group where the author has also provided the humorous illustrations; it comes from Canada - a rare event in itself; and the content - a miscellany of technical advice, useful hints and a good helping of humour - is unconventional when compared with the majority of bowls books.
On-Kow wrote the book for those who discover the joy of being a bowler and wish to improve their game, and interviewed over 30 bowlers who were willing to share their bowls' experiences. The book includes personal stories intermingled with topics such as choice of bowls, skills, shots, strategies, tactics, team play and amusing stories.
