Although I have only had my MXT for four months I had read that this book was the holy grail for the MXT owner. After reading it, then re-reading it I find that it is much less than I expected. There is a tremendious amount of repitition, not just once but 3-4 time in many instances. I feel that 90% of the information can be found in the owners manual that is presented here. That is not to say that I didn't gain any new, relevant information from the book, I did but not worth the price. The book is well bound so it will lay flat on a table if you desire to read it that way and the print is large enough for most of us old foggies.

It may be of help to a total newcomer to metal detecting with the MXT but not for anyone who has any experience at the hobby. Sorry I can't give it the rave review that others have on other sites but for me it didn't give me the "Edge" that I was expecting.

I suggest that a new MXT owner take the time to read their manual carefully then get out and use the machine. It is an absolutely great detector and does as well at coin shooting as it does with relics. I have never had the ocassion to use it for prospecting but from what I have heard it excels there also. For those who have read comments about erratic behavior read your manual, turn down the sensitivity in mineralized ground and LEARN YOUR MACHINE. It will bring more good finds out of the ground than anything I have ever used and I have used a lot of different machines. Straight out of the box it is by far the easiest detector to use that I have ever owned.

I have owned my MXT for 2 years with somewhat sporadic use, and gleaning any really useful operations information from the manual is difficult if not impossible. The MXT Edge not only covers the basics from the manual, but digs layers deeper into the subtle operating characteristics of this highly flexible unit. The manual is organized in a way that makes it easy to pick it up for a "refresher course" before you head out when the detector has been sitting in the closet for a few months. I highly recommend this as an addition to an MXT owners bag of tricks. I only wish I had got my hands on this when I got the detector.

Elaborates on instructions provided with machine. I purchased this book to help decide on purchase of MXT. Book does repeat itself on many topics, and that is due to the way it is laid out. You can go to a specific topic and get all info you need for that topic. If reading by topic you probably will not notice much duplication. Reading cover to cover will be more noticable

Fount this book to contain a wealth of information NOT contained in the owners manual. It also delves much deaper into the technology behind the hobbie and is worth the price for the background and discussion on various coils. Must have for the MXT user or those researching this machine.

This book is a must read for all mxt/mxt pro owners. It goes far into detail on usage even gives info on coils. My only gripe about this book is that it has 3 main points of coverage: coin and jewelry, relic, and prospecting -- the book keeps jumping from point to point that its hard to follow. It should have only had 3 main chapters devoted to the 3 main points. I will admit the book is hard to follow along. Having said that- it is THE bible of mxt metal detecting. The owners manual does not cover nearly enough material and this book fills the gap and then some. Another good read on the mxt is "The mxt diary" by Gordon Gibson- its a $2 mini 20 page booklet that gives lots of easy to follow along info.
If you own an mxt pro - the mxt edge book throws you off a little because some of the features are not included. Remember: this book is only relating to the original mxt detector.

As a person who is new to metal detecting this book was a fantastic resource that I'm sure I will refer back to again and again. I have an MXT and I learned a lot about the machine and how to operate it from this book. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in metal detecting.

Excellant book. Very informative. A must read for White's MXT series. Metal detector's Bible! Read this before your next outing.

The MXT Edge is an invaluable resource for anyone who owns the White's MXT E-Series detector. If you're new at detecting and are starting with the MXT this book is a definite must have. All detectors have their own specific methods of analyzing and presenting data to the user. The MXT Edge will greatly reduce your learning curve allowing you to be more successful. Also, throughout the book the author provides an excellent tutorial on how VLF detectors/coils work in general. The book is a little expensive but well worth the money if you're serious about detecting as your hobby. After increasing your understanding of the operation and having greater success with the MXT from the start you'll be looking for any excuse to get out of the house and go swing your detector.
