According to Chuck Pezzano of Bowlers Journal International, the best bowling book is "The Perfect Game" by the late Herm Weiskopf.
Making of a Pin
The highest pinfall in tenpin bowling in 24 hours by a pair was 27,499 pins by Chad McLean and Gene Dalusio (both USA) from April 30 - May 1, 2011. 1046 strikes thrown (38% of their total pinfall). This record is not for traditional bowling score but for pins knocked down cumulatively. Thus they can reset to a 10-pin frame after each throw if they choose instead of bowling a 1 or 2 pin spare.
Chad McLean is what you might call an overachiever. The Florida native broke the Guinness World Record in 2012 for "most strikes thrown in one minute", bowling 9 strikes. See it on You Tube.
