I am giving this this version one celebrity as a result of the info that follows.This version states--right at the cover--that it "now offers info on GPS." that's actually precise yet very deceptive. I had anticipated information regarding the way to use GPS in addition to a map or compass, or utilizing GPS in simple terms. yet in its place, the only a few statements approximately GPS simply let you know that GPS is undesirable, and maps and compasses are sturdy. when you glance within the desk of contents, you will not see any bankruptcy approximately GPS. visit the index and also you see in simple terms 3 (that's correct, 3) pages which point out GPS. web page tells us how GPS does not paintings good in forests, canyons, and so forth. Then visit web page 14 - 15, and you will find that Ms. Elgin and the publishers have been in this sort of hurry to profit from the luck of the unique model, they could not even get the index correct. there's not anything on those pages approximately GPS, yet after all if there have been, it is going to simply be, back, that GPS is undesirable and maps and compasses are good.Perhaps the writer ignored that on web page 20, the booklet states that maps let you know concerning the geographic positive factors of the area,"not simply the way to get there, as with a world Positioning System." After this, i ended interpreting, even supposing I did glance in the course of the publication for anything worthwhile approximately GPS. i did not see something, and the index does not contradict this as, back, there are just 3 pages which supposedly supply details on GPS.It's unlucky that the author's daughter stumbled on it essential to dishonestly try to promote extra books with this phony "revised edition." i have ordered the former version.
