I was very pleasantly surprised when the book arrived; I had not expected how comprehensive it actually was. The book is not really like any 'modern quick fix' manual, but more of an in-depth reference book about the old navigating skills from all over the world that by all means still can be valid today. If you want to use the book as a practical manual be prepared that it can take time to digest the detailed knowledge it contains, to be able to use that knowledge in real life it is of course in most cases necessary to go out in the field and practice the skills described, which in any way is not a negative thing. Sustainable knowledge can take time to develop. As stated below the book covers sea navigation in great deal, not really something I was looking for, but still very interesting as the author was undoubtedly a very keen student and practitioner of various traditional navigating methods.
