It is a game of skill and requires practice just like any other art or talent. With a good guide to bowling, you can learn the basics and be one step ahead of the game and begin polishing your art.

Once you pick a ball, you put your funny shoes on; you sit in front of the lane, now what? This book goes on to explain the common dos and don’ts of bowling in gameplay.
It speaks in detail of some of the techniques the pros use and how a beginner can start to meditate on these things. Aspects like the release, as well as the approach walk. How pendulums work, and how your arm and the ball are affected. Any beginner can start to research these things and begin to develop their game at a more rapid pace.
