Best suited for the intermediate celestial navigator, in my opinion, not for the absolute beginner, given the brevity of some of the explanations. Plenty of content for advanced students, too.
Thoroughly enjoyed this book and learned quite a few new aspects of celestial navigation. Highly recommend.
Now this is a complex subject with lots to memorize and with such a basic error I kept asking my self "what else is wrong in this book." I lost confidence in the book. If there are more errors like this I am not going to figure out what is going on. If you have someone well versed in the subject that you can study with who can spot other errors it would be a good book. If not don't buy the book.
the examples are clear and easy to understand. i think this book can be used to only teach the basics or entice the students to go deeper into the celestial navigation.
