With the Winter 2006 Olympics bringing Canada our first gold medal
in curling, the sport's popularity is at an all-time high in this
country, and its international presence is growing. In the five
years since the publication of the first edition of Curling For
, Canadian attendance at curling tournaments and
viewership of televised curling has skyrocketed. Twenty new nations
have joined the World Curling Federation.
Curling's profile isn't the only thing that's changed since the
first edition was published - so too have the game's rules,
equipment, and technique. Profiles of players, listings of
television coverage and events, and memorable curling shots also
need to be updated for the second edition. As the most
comprehensive and up-to-date book available, Curling For
Dummies will remain the ultimate curling book, for fans,
players, and coaches.
