"This is the most comprehensive how-to book on bowling I have read. The principles and techniques presented can, if conscientiously applied, improve any bowler’s game, from novice to professional."

A bowler since 1958, Robert H. (Bob) Strickland won the first of his many championships in 1961. In 1978 he joined the Professional Bowlers Association; five years later he began teaching the sport professionally.
