Revue de presse

In terms of sheer did-you-knows per page it is one of the richest, densest, most rewarding books on nature I have read in a long time...its joy in deduction is infectiously delightful. (Sunday Times - James McConnachie)

Learning so much in The Walker's Guide, the new book from Tristan Gooley, that I might have to take another long walk ... (Nicholas Crane)

I for one will never look at the British countryside in quite the same way again. (Countryfile Magazine - Stephen Moss)

Gooley can show the most moonstruck how to interpret their surroundings. Even the intrepid Bear Grylls could learn a trick or two from this book. (The Times)

Anyone interested in walking out of doors at any time would be well advised to read this excellent book. (The Royal Institute of Navigation)

As with his earlier, equally important The Natural Navigator , this text is densely packed with information, engagingly and clearly written ... Every outdoor-lover should have at least one Tristan Gooley book in their library. He's attained national treasure status, as useful and educative as he is endearingly unique. (The Great Outdoors magazine - Jim Perrin)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The book I wish I had had in high-school 30 août 2014
Par Peter Red - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I had read about Mr. Gooley’s courses on Natural Navigation some years ago in the Reader’s Digest I believe. At that time, I was fascinated becau7se he claimed to be able to use natural navigation in cities too. I do not live in the UK and consequently did not have easy access to the course or his teaching. I was thrilled to discover that he had put his discoveries into a book.
I am one of those people who learn by reading. Yes, a picture is worth a thousand words but there are times when words are crucial. I had thought the book to be full of pictures without much context. I could not have been more wrong.
Mr. Gooley starts with a masterful introduction about determining weather with the backdrop of a beech and an amorous couple. He explains about distances, the wind and clouds before segwaying into his subject. This is not a universal book. The author is clear about the geographies in which the material in the book is applicable.
The book is split into several chapters; each chapter deals with a specific aspect of natural navigation. There are chapters on trees and plants, the landscape, the wind and many more, each dealing with how to use that attribute for finding your way. Yes, he does bring them all together. For those who like checklists, there are plenty of those as well. One of the most fascinating portions of the book is when he describes his walk with the Dayak. However, I wish there had been more detail. For example, how did they get away from the bees in the forest?
This book is a must read for educators, math teachers and geography teachers because it illustrates how these subjects should be taught. It is much easier to understand the Pythagoras theorem by its application in crossing a river and calculating heights and distances rather than those proofs and out of context problems that students are made to solve at least when studying in India.
Over all, a great read and a reference book I will return to frequently.

A very interesting read which gives good insight into finding your way around the countryside without the aid of a GPS and the other modern aids. Amazing how modern aids have made us forget the obvious navigational help that nature has provided us with. More Photographs and illustrations would have made the book more interesting and helpful !
