Synopsis Brian Duncan, crown green bowling's number one for the last 20 years, passes on gilt-edged tips, advice and information on the skills, techniques and tactics that helped him to become a living legend in the sport.

The Lancashire maestro speaks with an unrivalled wisdom about the do's and don'ts of the game and offers young players taking up bowling an insight into the right equipment to choose, how to prepare, his views on practice and the best shots to play.

And for anyone hoping to go right to the top in the sport, the author gives vital clues about how to improve concentration and match strategy.

Co-authored and edited by top bowling journalist, Mike Wakelam, the book is also a lively account of Brian Duncan's staggering success in the sport, his triumphs at the Wembley of crown green bowling, the Waterloo, and the great players he has faced.

Crown King is a book that will inspire, instruct and captivate the legions of fans who play and watch one of the most popular and fastest growing sports in Britain.
