The rules of horseshoes have changed over the years, for much the same reason pro football's have: to encourage more scoring. In 1909 the stakes protruded only 2 inches above ground, whereas today they tower 14 inches. The distance between the stakes, the size and weight of the horseshoes, and, of course, the strategy of the game have all evolved, too. Boga recounts horseshoes history in this handbook's opening chapter, then gets down to the real point -- how to play the game right and well. He describes styles of pitching (ie various turns and the popular 'flip' technique), the proper grip, stance, and swing, and 'winning the mental game'. Moreover, he advocates a holistic approach that involves visualisation, focus, and concentration. With nearly half the book devoted to the official rules and master schedules for tournaments, and considering Boga's clear instruction and obvious dedication, this is a book for the serious player.
