Frequently Asked Questions

Is this a teach-yourself manual?

This book is intended to be an inspiration for your training and to provide some useful background reading or a different perspective on a particular skill or technique. It is NOT intended to be a replacement for a qualified instructor. It can never provide the sort of tailored and personal advice that an experienced instructor can. They know you best and can adapt their teaching approach to suit you in a way that no book can.

Where can I buy the book?

Check the 'Where to buy' link above for a current list of stockists. You can buy directly from our e-store or otherwise from retailers like Amazon.

How long does delivery take, and how much does it cost?

Delivery times and methods depend on where you are in the world and from where you order the book.

Please remember that this is a print-on-demand book and each copy is printed when you make your order. Although the system is very efficient, it might take a few days longer to arrive compared to other books from online retailers.

What is your returns policy?

If you bought the book directly from me, then please contact me so I can resolve your issue.

If you bought it from another online retailer or directly from your trapeze school, you will have to contact them.

Is the book available in other languages?

Not for the moment, sorry.

I run a trapeze school, can I sell this book to my students?

Of course. I offer wholesale prices and volume discounts to schools who become resellers. Please contact me to discuss.

I'd like to suggest a correction/improvement

As with all the content on, I welcome any comments or suggestions that can make the book even better. Contact me using the link above and I'll make sure you receive the appropriate credit for your comment in the next edition.

I call that trick something different, why have you called it that?

There is no standard naming convention for flying trapeze tricks, and trick names vary by school. In this book I have tried to use a consistent naming convention based on what I consider to be the most common trick names. However, you will probably find that at least some of them differ from the names you are used to. On the website you will find that some tricks have a list of alternative names, however this wasn't practical to include in the book.

I'm expecting this book to be an international bestseller. Can I get hold of a signed copy so I can sell it on ebay in the future and retire early?

Yes. Contact me and ask nicely.
