Instantly distinguish between a schuss and a snowplough, a stem turn and a slalom, a sidecut and a side slip with Bluffers Guide to Skiing. Bask in the admiration of your fellow skiers as you pronounce confidently on what to do and where to do it. Never claim that your skis have blunt edges or that you just cant get enough flex in your ski boots (these are valid excuses for most forms of skiing ineptitude.) And never boast that you havent had a lesson in your life. This is ill advised, not least because it invites the entirely legitimate retort: Yes, it shows. Above all, effortlessly hold your own against those who have skiing in their DNA. Just dont make the mistake of skiing with them. Bluffer's Guide to Skiing: Instant Wit and Wisdom (Bluffer's Guides)

Bought as a Christmas present but naturally had a flick through very funny but actually quite informative. Good read for beginners and advanced skiers alike. Enjoy! 978-1785215698 Charlene's Review:

This occasional tongue in cheek look at skiing was informational as well as entertaining. Describing the art of skiing as binding wooden planks to their feet as a means of transportation Mr. Allsop shows he knows his stuff, and how to make light of it.

Insider information on THE skiing clubs to be a part of, the history of skiing, and numerous techniques, variations and ski personality types abound. Terminology to make you look impressive, and the paragraph on what injuries not to have poke a bit of innocent fun while still imparting vast knowledge in a condensed guide.

*A physical copy was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. 978-1785215698 got this for a friend. I think he liked 978-1785215698 Great fun if you know anything about skiing 978-1785215698 Great little gift book for the show off skier (I am writing this as a long suffering snowboarder with a group of show off skiers who bang on about how much skilled it is than snowboarding). This book pokes fun at the sport, the personalities of skiers and is a jolly good giggle 978-1785215698
