The Heinz Reinkemeier book.

It is sold in the Pilguns website   
 http://www.pilkguns.com/store/Pistol-Shooting-Book-p86757637

Has anybody read it and if so is it worth the $75 price? These days there is lots of material in the internet both as articles as well as videos but even so some classics endure, Yur'yev etc.

I have a copy and think it is a good book. It is focused on International shooting, 10m Air Pistol, 50m Mens Pistol and 25m Rapid Fire but it has a lot of good illustrations and explanations that cross over to NRA Precision Pistol shooting. (There is a lot of embedded marketing for the SCATT targeting system)

Very good book.  Yes, focused on International.  But, position, trigger, and sights cross over.  Very interesting reading and great photography.

I have it as well, it is interesting and has good content, but at times I wanted to have a few words with the layout designer.  It is definitely a high quality book that is densely packed with info and great photos.

I just wish I had discovered Pistol Shooter’s Treasury earlier in my BE journey.  I would make sure to get that one first.

To totally simplify them is not fair, but I feel like one is about training for the Olympics and one is about training for Camp Perry.    

Even though I said it would not be my first choice book for BE pistol, it would be a top choice overall.  Here is my list of favorite Bullseye book reads:

1. AMU Marksmanship guide- it’s the best and free! http://www.bullseyepistol.com/amucover.htm

2. Pistol Shooter’s Treasury- Hebard

3. Competitive Shooting- Yur’yev

4. Pistol Shooting- Reinkemeier

Thank you all.

I've got ^ numbers 1 and 2, while number 3 was loaned and lost. So I guess it is time to get the Reinkemeier and .... the photos in color.

Can’t believe I forgot to add this book.  It truly changed my Bullseye attitude.  It is recommended by several top level shooters and BE pistol instructors.

Trust me, this book is not about tennis, it justs uses tennis as the vehicle.

I want to add something else I just recalled about this book.  After reading it, I got the audio book and listened to it while doing dry fire practice.  It was interesting to have thoughts while dry firing and hearing the audio in the background saying “Stop thinking like that!”

It really got the lesson to stick.

One can add the Audible book to the Kindle purchase and in my case I have a trial freebie which I'll apply. I've never listened to an audio book but I just heard a sample of this one and it isn't too bad.

The entry to this BE thing has caused me to study harder in six months than I did in four years in college.

Thank you for that link.  I ordered The Inner Game of Tennis by Timmothy Gallwey and read 1/3 of the book on the first sitting - the part about beating yourself up with self judgement.  Yep.

I've recently been able to approach my practice scores in a match and hope this different way of thinking will help - I don't think it can hurt.  FWIW, I've read "Zen in the Art of Archery", but that didn't seem to ring quite as true for me.  I also shoot trap (for fun, no scores) and notice alot of shooters have that self judgement attitude.  I have a better time and shoot better since I tend to not do that (with trap).  I just need to shift my non-judgemental attitude over to Bullseye.  Part of my problem may be that league scores are kept and I need to stop thinking about that.
