I had expected information about how to use GPS along with a map or compass, or using GPS only. But instead, the very few statements about GPS just tell you that GPS is BAD, and maps and compasses are good. If you look in the table of contents, you won't see any chapter about GPS. Go to the index and you see only three (that's right, three) pages which mention GPS. Page two tells us how GPS doesn't work well in forests, canyons, etc.

Be Expert With Map & Compass" is not only a good book for beginners, older heads can find it useful as well. I first learned map and compass in 1966 and I find this book useful for staying sharp with my map and compass skills. But I still recommend this book.

A super packed review and great general info. I don’t care much about the historical part but how to use n become good at compass use is impt. This book is best I have see for that. Thank u.

I used to own this book when I was in the Boy Scouts. Even these days with GPS and Cell Phones, knowing how to use a map and a compass could come in handy when things start to fall apart....and that could be soon.

everything ok

This is a classic book, however, this is not the classic edition. This is a high price to pay for a printing of the text that is far from perfect. The original copy of this text includes practice maps and a teaching compass. This edition is resembles a photocopy of the original. In some places the text is cut off near the margins. There is a newer enhanced edition that is updated by Bjorn's daughter. That edition is worth the price. While the information in this book is still relevant, the quality of the book is far from what it should be for the price. I would not recommend this version to anyone.

This book came out in the mid to late seventies and was a great learning tool, mine however got destroyed, and I have been wanting to replace it so I could teach my kids what I learned, so when I found this I had to have it, and it has been upgraded over the years to now include a section on GPS, also always had a section on orienteering which is a great sport to get into, especially scouts of any kind,It is very easy to use, and even has a self study option, I highly recommend this Book!

Great classic for the traditional outdoors person.
good for a novice,all you need to know about Topo and Compass, this seems to be the standard for learning the ropes
