RRP: £20

Inspired by an amusing book given to Rosie Nickerson as a young girl, published in 1979 by Debretts entitled 'I'll Never Be Asked Again' featuring a young Canadian girl who goes grouse shooting for the first time and gets everything wrong, 'How To Be Asked Again' is a step-by-step guide to modern shooting etiquette stuffed full of amusing quotes and anecdotes.

How To Be Asked Again instructs the Gun on how to be the perfect guest out shooting. Inspired by the fact that so many more people are taking up shooting as adults, it incorporates everything you are simply "expected to know" without anyone ever telling you. Covering a range of topics in a logical way, from the moment you receive a shooting invitation (aligned with invitation "Do's and Don'ts"), to arriving at the shoot, shooting safely, what never to say and even how to tip the keeper.

Much of this information comes from beaters, keepers, flankers, pickers up, shoot organisers and shoot owners, combined with hilarious cartoons by Oliver Preston, making this a very informative yet entertaining book on shooting  the perfect gift for any shooting man or woman, be they novice or experienced.



THE AUTHOR

The youngest daughter of shooting legend Sir Joseph Nickerson, who wrote A Shooting Man's Creed, Rosie has been steeped in the dos and don'ts of shooting since early childhood, having shot her first grouse at the age of nine. She is a freelance journalist having written for Country Life, The Field and was 'token "green wellie"' for Tatler for a year.

REVIEWS


"Sub-titled How to be the Perfect Shooting Guest, this excellent book first appeared last year and its informative but entertaining style, dotted with anecdote, make it a perfect Christmas present".Fieldsports, Winter 2010

"This book is much more than the title implies and will be invaluable to anyone new to game shooting. It is also pretty useful for the old hands too. The brilliant illustrations by Oliver Preston give the book a life of its own. It's great advice from a real expert." Shooting Gazette

"Improve your chances of being invited back to a shoot by following Rosie Nickerson's advice." The Field
