From the Back Cover

Here at last, is a bright modern approach to celestial navigation, for those wanting a little more than just a textbook to pass an exam.
Beginning with a brief outline of the solar system, the author provides a step-by-step guide to finding your position on the ocean, both with and without a pocket calculator for working out sights. And to assist novices in star recognition, the outstanding color illustrations will prove a real boon.
This book: is a straightforward how-to-do-it guide; requires only elementary math; contains outstanding illustrations to assist with star recognition; provides logical step-by-step guidance on position fixing; will replace the need to carry heavy almanacs on board.

By Oliver Wagner on July 21, 2005
A small book full of very useful information. I don't think this is the ideal book for beginners since the information is presented in a very dense manner. It's an excellent and detailed summary to the celestial navigation with very good pictures. The templates provided are well made, but it's impossible to copy them without destroying the book.
