    This is a moderately interesting book but it did fall short in a couple of areas. I had hoped to pick up some pointers on improving my knife and tomahawk throwing because, you know, everyone really should. While the book did cover the basics, in my opinion the writer could have made it better by providing some diagrams to augment the photos. You know, a picture being worth a thousand words and all that. Mr McEvoy digressed into the biographies and techniques of some of the experts of the era, mo This is a moderately interesting book but it did fall short in a couple of areas.

You know, a picture being worth a thousand words and all that. Mr McEvoy digressed into the biographies and techniques of some of the experts of the era, most of whom are undoubtedly underground by now. All in all not a bad little book, but if you want to become an expert you'll need to go elsewhere.

    The book had some good tips on choosing a good throwing knife or tomahawk. It also had some knife throwing techniques but glossed over tomahawks. Could have used more of both along with more photos. The book did delve into the history of throwing knives and tomahawks, including some modern throwers which while interesting was not really what I was looking for.
