KIRKUS REVIEW

A long-time sports writer for teens (The Roy Campanella Story, The Gil Hodges Story, etc.) Milton Shapiro is well-qualified to produce a basic book of firearms by virtue of his editorship of GUNsport magazine. Factual and exhaustive, the Beginner's Book covers the history and development of firearms, describes current refinements and types, details shooting technique, competitions and clubs, with satisfactory emphasis on caution and safety rules. Mr. Shapiro writes as informally as Phil Rizzuto sportscasts, assuming the interest but not the previous knowledge of his audience.
