I am giving this this version one celebrity as a result of the info that follows.This variation states--right at the cover--that it "now presents info on GPS." that's actually actual yet very deceptive. I had anticipated information regarding tips to use GPS in addition to a map or compass, or utilizing GPS merely. yet as an alternative, the only a few statements approximately GPS simply inform you that GPS is undesirable, and maps and compasses are reliable. in the event you glance within the desk of contents, you will not see any bankruptcy approximately GPS. visit the index and also you see merely 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 the sort of hurry to take advantage of the luck of the unique model, they could not even get the index correct. there's not anything on those pages approximately GPS, yet in fact if there have been, it'll simply be, back, that GPS is undesirable and maps and compasses are good.Perhaps the writer ignored that on web page 20, the publication states that maps inform you in regards to the geographic good points of the area,"not simply how you can get there, as with an international Positioning System." After this, i finished analyzing, even though I did glance through the publication for anything important approximately GPS. i did not see something, and the index does not contradict this as, back, there are just 3 pages which supposedly supply info on GPS.It's unlucky that the author's daughter came across it essential to dishonestly try and promote extra books with this phony "revised edition." i have ordered the former version.
