Great List.

I have an old video called Practice Makes Perfect that starts Wayne Webb and Lisa Wagner. It's a little dated, but I still think this is one of the best introductory instructional bowling videos I've ever seen. Covers all the major topics, even down to the system of how to count and move boards to convert spares.

Like I said, its a bit dated, from the early 80's I think, but I still highly recommed it if it can be found. It will benefit new bowlers the most.

If i can suggest:

Right Down Your Alley

We used this in my bowling class, has alot of pictures and from what I can tell a good read for anyone starting out. It also has about 5 pages of "trouble shooting" if you will. With detailed descriptions of problems and how to correct them.

Is Bowling This Month a good magazine and is there a good amount of reading material available in each issue? That one looks to be the most interesting from the ones that were listed. Any other recommendations on mags?
