I am looking for the "encylopedia" of archery.

Is there a book that is current, 2004 or later, that addresses all aspects of archery to some lesser, or greater, degree of detail.

Or, what are the current books/videos on archery technology?

Or, if nothing else, what are the best current archery books.

All the archery retailers I have visted here in Texas address bow hunting. I dont want to watch a video of animals getting stalked and shot. Though I dont have a problem with the concept, it just has no practical use for my search for the technical aspects of archery and archery technique.

Thanks!

For Compound shooting
The best two are:
Core Archery - Larry Wise
Mastering Compound Bows - James Park

also worth having:
Idiot Proof Archery - Bernie Pellerite - mostly BS, but enough good material to make it worthwhile. The chapter on anticipation is excellent


For Olympic Recurve
Archery Steps to Success - Haywood & Lewis - good basic book
Total Archery - Kisik Lee - his students have won 9 gold medals
The Heritic Archer - Frangeli

I would also add the Straight Talk from Michael Braden DVD.

I would also add "Archery Anatomy" by Ray Axford

Idiot Proof Archery, Bernie Pellerite

Very good, covers a lot of topics with practical advice, just ignore the stuff you don't want to hear. A very worth while read...
