Love this book, but don't buy the Kindle version. The book is full of tables, charts, and illustrations that are not readable on the Kindle. Additionally, you'll want to skip around to the various assigned tasks and drills, and won't be able to go directly to them on the Kindle. However, if you are a competition shooter, or want to get better than you are, definitely buy the hard copy of this book. I did, which means I had to buy it twice. BTW, purchase the videos that go with this book. They make the drills much easier to understand, plus you get Seeklander's explanation of why he does the things the way he does, and provides valuable technique information.
I have been shooting USPSA and IDPA for years. I got pretty good pretty quickly, but hit a wall in performance improvement about two years ago. Why? Because while I did develop pretty good skills, I never created a formal plan for improvement. I would go out and practice in an unstructured way. This book gives you a playbook on how to improve. It breaks down the different components of practical shooting and gives you a plan on how to address the different skills you need to get better at the game.
Basically, if you want to get better at shooting (or anything really) you have to know what needs to be improved, how to improve it, and the steps you need to take to get it done. You then need to do the work to get better.

Bottom line- If you are a practical shooter and want to get better,...
This is a great book to advance your shooting skills. It has a lot of depth and specifics on what drills to run and what you are looking to get out of each of them. The sections on what you are trying to "program" into your brain to make your competition better are very useful. You can also tell that the author has competed at very high levels and has some good insights into what you need to do to get there.
The only thing that didn't line up exactly with how I train is the very regimented way that your are supposed to accomplish the drills. I agree totally with what he is trying to get you to accomplish it just seems too programmed for me. That is something that will totally vary with each person so take that for what it is worth. This I think is the only thing that reduced it from Brian Enos book which has a much more introspective take on training.
So overall a great book to advance your skills. Has some good drills in it and is written from the...
