This review is from: A Trailside Guide: Rock Climbing (New Edition) (Trailside Guides) (Paperback)
The old "textbook" model of learning is obsolete. This book does it right: Short, well illustrated articles that cover topics concisely; Sidebars that reinforce; Well marked sections that are self-contained.
I started climbing last week and I bought half a dozen books. I have two that I consider priceless. This one and: Rock Climbing (Outdoor Pursuits Series).
Call me a Gen. X, MTV, schitzoid; but these books both work the way I think!
