Based on Fact Too, incorporating Clive’s Coaching Handbook.

Postby Clive A » Sun May 13, 2018 6:14 am

In 2015 I published a collection of stories under the title of Based on Fact. At that time I was keen to get a second book off the press as soon as possible but I very quickly discovered that I had already used all my best stories, hence a rather long delay while I created more material that, in my opinion at least, is worth publishing. I hope you think the wait was worthwhile.

Most of the stories have already seen the light of day in the (rather excellent) PPCA newsletter, but there are also some brand new epistles in there for your entertainment and, as a bonus, I have included Clive’s Coaching Manual which, (I’m sure) will soon be required reading for all trainee coaches.

I rather cheekily asked David Pedlow if he would write a little something for the back cover. He came up with this:

As if a second helping from this doyen of kayak writing were not in itself sufficient to justify the cover price, this time Clive lets us into the secrets of his highly successful instructional techniques, which have earned him such deep respect from generations of Plymouth Paddlers.

Clive writes as he paddles – it seems easy and effortless, until you try it yourself!

I’ve told David that he can keep on sending me snippets like this but is he telling the truth? To find out copies of Based on Fact Too are available from me (Clive Ashford) at the bargain price of £6.
