Anchoring: A Ground Tackler's Apprentice by Rudy and Jill Sechez
This new book by Rudy and Jill Sechez is called, Anchoring: A Ground Tackler’s Apprentice. Sub-titled “Basics and Beyond,” the text does indeed deliver both the simple stuff and a level of detail only an engineer would appreciate.

Anyone who wants to dig in deep on the topic should appreciate this new volume. 218 pages, soft cover. $24.95
