As I already made a few blowguns, inspired by youtube videos, I became fascinated of their fantastic combination of power, ease of use and simplicity of construction. After that I wanted to learn more, so I bought this book. Honestly, I am a bit dissapointed with it.
True, it has some great chapters - like special projectiles and making of air cone projectiles I could not make them good before reading the book , but all in all it is too brief in many topics: History of blowguns? Customizing your blowgun? Also too brief - better and more pictures would help here!
And essential chapter - shooting from blowgun has only 4 pages! Tranquilizer darts are an interesting read, and so is information about poison. If you have an interest in those, you can definitely profit from it.
All in all, this is OK book. It is a bit childishly written and it rarely mentions any sources of information. You can learn many of things detailed in this book just by searching the internet. Just because of it's price, and few really exotic-use details that can be found in it, consider it adding it to your library. We watched the "Indiana Jones" movies, and a few others, and were curious about this books topic. As I labeled it, it's an interesting read. If you enjoy reading about, or experimenting with primitive hunting implements, you should find this informative.
The book is very resourceful, especially on the parts on how to make your own darts, so why spend to buy a blow gun and darts if it is a lot more economical to make your own with material you probably already have. Interesting and informative from a respected teacher. I have read other things from this author and respect his opinions.
I learned some things from it. Worth while if you are interested in the subject. Great tips, though most people reading this probably don't want to know about every facet he goes into.
This book covers pretty much everything, from history to practical use. Go to Amazon. Back to top. Get to Know Us. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands. Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web. DPReview Digital Photography.
