This book is the perfect gift for someone who is setting up his own man cave or game room, and is looking for new things to do in his new space.  It’s also a great guide for anyone who just wants to gain more understanding about the sport and be able to follow the game whenever it’s shown on TV or when watching live games.  Many consider this the bible for darts, and the first and last book about darts you’ll ever need to read.

What makes this book about darts special?

This book explains all the intricacies of the sport in a way that anyone can easily understand, whether you’re a complete novice or a seasoned player with years or even decades of experience under his belt.

The author, Patrick Chaplin, is fondly known as Dr. Darts by his fans worldwide.  He is one of the leading historians of the sport and has written and co-written many books on darts.  He is also an expert on the storied history of pubs and other long forgotten pub games such as cork throwing, bumblepuppy and four corners.

In The Official Bar Guide to Darts, he compiles years of his own personal research into one comprehensive volume, which makes it a must read for anyone who has any sort of interest in the sport.  It explains all the basics of darts, and goes into much further detail about every aspect of the sport like no other book on darts has ever done before.
