"Rolling with Sticks" is a spiral bound book produced on waterproof paper and written by Christopher Crowhurst. The book has 25 rolls and techniques. Each roll/technique is illustrated with 8 simplified diagrams and described in detail. Each technique also has its Greenland name and Competition point value.
After watching numerous DVDs on rolling and bracing and still not being able to roll/brace I thought I would give this book a try. As I started reading the first few pages I had an "ah-ha" moment and things began to click. The angle of the drawings and the descriptions were easy to visualize in my head. Some of the DVDs I had watched before left me confused as to my body position but this book cleared things up.
The author also has video clips on his website for additional help.
