With the Winter 2006 Olympics bringing Canada our first gold medal in curling, the sport's popularity is at an all-time
high in this country, and its international presence is growing. In the five years since the publication of the first
edition of Curling For Dummies, Canadian attendance at curling tournaments and viewership of televised curling has
skyrocketed. Twenty new nations have joined the World Curling Federation.
Curling’s profile isn't the only thing that's changed since the first edition was published — so too have the game's
rules, equipment, and technique. Profiles of players, listings of television coverage and events, and memorable curling
shots also need to be updated for the second edition. As the most comprehensive and up-to-date book available, Curling
For Dummies will remain the ultimate curling book, for fans, players, and coaches.
