Thank you for the enlightment.
I knew, I was being taken for a ride, but had no choice at that point in time.
Rifle Shooting by Launi Meili should be the first book to refer to. Its has a better flow which novices can grasp easily.
Here is my micro review of the book.
Book is over priced, even more so as its printed in India. The quality of paper and printing needs a lot of improvement. Get your self a copy from overseas, as an overseas copy will have better quality of paper and printing and its cheaper too....
WotR2009 has a lot of info but its layout is severely cluttered, its choice of font, size and colours are so bad that it has everything going wrong for it. Most users will not want to refer to it. It is a very reader unfriendly book packed with a lot of info though, which one will discover in bits and pieces on his journey through air rifle shooting.
I must say one thing emphatically. This book is not a substitute for a coach. One is better off learning under a coach (difficult in India, I am aware). As a learned one put it......YOU CAN'T OBSERVE YOURSELF..........

Got my copy today from Abhinav Futuristics Limited.
Took seven days to reach Mombai. Came in very well packed. Hats off to the staff.
Just thumbed through it and I say GO FOR IT
Tad expensive though. A British shop had it for GBP38 but would not ship to India so spent 4240/-
I'll try and do a review later if I can.
Abhinav ripped you off man, i paid 3700/- including shipping from Manohar books.
As an example of overcoming adversity, Karoly Takacs has few peers. He was part of Hungary’s world champion pistol-shooting team in 1938, when an army grenade exploded, crippling his right hand. Ten years later, having taught himself to shoot with his left, he won two gold medals in the rapid-fire class.
