Inspiring and informative

You can't really learn climbing, or any sport, from a book. You have to get out there and do it. But a book can inspire you and give you the basics so you won't embarrass yourself! This book was all that and more -- the encouragement for women, even those who aren't "athletic" and the guidelines for dealing with common fears were the best. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Climb easily through this one...

As a climbing illiterate, this book covers everything I could want to know...and more. (how to pee with a harness on!) An easy read with tons of information. Not just for women (except the part mentioned above). As a professional coach in a different sport, I can tell you that some of the ideas are written well enough to be used in other sports. With a little motivation and this book by my side, I think I will climb. Nice job.

Climbing A Woman's Guide is in good form.

Climbing A Woman's Guide by Shelley Presson is a comprehensive guide for women who want to get started and progress in the sport of climbing, either in indoor climbing gyms or on outdoor rock faces. The book has an excellent layout and design. It features good pictures and illustrations, and comprehensive step by step guidance for the reader. A terrific feature is the mental tricks. Shelley has provided a well written book that provides clear guidance for the beginner and the more advanced climber. She has thought of everything the climber will need from gear, clothing, safety, training, signals and holds, techniques and exercises. It is informative and inspiring.
