Holistic, yet practical

by mayhap (WorldCat user published 2009-04-29) Excellent Permalink

Came highly recommended by my spinning teacher. Gives thorough theoretical background as well as a variety of techniques. Highly readable. Good text to "coach" you through learning new spining techniques when you don't have someone at hand to demonstrate.
