Editorial Reviews

Review

Explains why ordinarily competent people become easily disoriented and offers helpful tips to those it calls directionally challenged. --New York Times

She presents theories and strategies to help the perennially turned around. --USA Today

Are you one of those people with no sense of direction?
Do you exit your hotel room and have no idea which way the elevator is located? Do you panic if a detour forces you to take an unfamiliar route home? Do you have to turn a map around in order to read it?
If getting lost is your normal way of getting from one place to another, no matter how many times you stop to ask for directions, a new book out will help you realize you're not alone and even give you some pointers for solving your problem.
Never Get Lost Again: The Complete Guide to Improving Your Sense of Direction; by Linda Grekin is an entertaining and useful book about the hard-core directionally impaired the kind of people who get lost even with GPS devices, MapQuest and Google Maps. Grekin, the author, designed a survey to figure out what traits are common to people who get lost a lot. One thing stood out in her research: Most of those with a poor sense of direction also have trouble visualizing and mentally rotating objects. They have to turn a map around so that it's facing the way they're going; they have to write directions out in reverse; and if they are on the lower floor of a two-story house, they can't be sure what room is above them. The book includes some interesting quizzes to test your spatial ability, along with tips for the directionally impaired, including highlighting your route on a map, noting landmarks so you can find your way back more easily, and allowing extra time so that if you do get lost, you won't be late. --Associated Press

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
She spends the all but the LAST 5 pages quoting people who get lost a lot, and their stories. Finally the last chapter (which is only like 5 pages), she gives "tips" but they are as simple as: write directions, ask for land markers, use mapquest, etc. NO BRAINERS! I was hoping for a book that actually helped me re-train my mind to think better, not print out google maps!

The only redeeming quality is she lets the reader know that "1/3 of the population is directionally challenged". There ya go. Save your money.

Format: Paperback
Like one of the other reviewers, I was hoping that the book would live up to its title - that it would provide some helpful suggestions so that I would "never get lost again". Instead, it was full of non-scientific reports (i.e. lots of people get lost a lot), and a couple of useless tips (e.g. write down directions for getting where you want to go).

Guess I should have read the reviews first and saved my money.

Format: Paperback
Getting lost is never fun. "Never Get Lost Again!: The Complete Guide to Improving Your Sense of Direction" is a guide to improving what some choose to believe is simply innate: one's sense of direction. With many tips and tricks about little things one can do to realize where one is and avoid wasting so much time getting lost, author Linda Grekin provides a service to those who more often than not are not on the right road. "Never Get Lost Again!" a strongly recommended read, whether for oneself or the perennially lost loved one.
