For the simplest short book to learn practical celestial navigation, might I recommend George Buehler's "How to Find Where you Are By The Sun" , subtitled "what you better know when the GPS dies" from [...] There are a few typographical errors here and there, but his IS a very understandable instruction booklet with some theory so that you understand why it works. His humor is excellent.
Unfortunately, I was looking for a book that would actually teach me how to do celestial navigation. This book explains the concept of celestial navigation, but does not go into detail. I will have to get another book to actually learn the subject - maybe Bowditch.
