The Complete Pipers Handbook by P/M Brett Tidswell
 
In this extensive handbook, Tidswell provides a thorough discussion of the bagpipe, its components, proper care of the instrument, and how you can get the most from your pipes and from yourself as a beginner, a competitor and a band member. Explanations are combined with great color photographs to make the information clear and interesting. While information about pipe care is becoming more available, nothing beats having a book at your fingertips, something you can reference whenever you have a question or need to troubleshoot an issue.
