From the Author
We're Paul and Dana Gillin and we love geocaching. When we went looking for a book to help us become better geocachers, we were surprised to find that no new titles had been published in more than four years. That's why we wrote The Joy of Geocaching.
We interviewed scores of the world's most successful and enthusiastic cachers as well as geocache owners, extreme cachers, community organizers, educators and even businesspeople who use caching to promote their companies and destinations. We accompanied people on power-caching expeditions and visited with local groups. We traveled all over America in search of log books in Tupperware containers.
In the process, we discovered the geocaching is more than a game. To its most enthusiastic players, it's a passion, a love affair and a life-changing experience. We heard hundreds of wonderful stories and the packed as many as we could into this book.
The Joy of Geocaching teaches the ins and outs of a game that counts more than three million players in nearly every country in the world. But more importantly, it's about people connecting with each other to find health and happiness through a worldwide treasure hunt.

Many Smilies and Enjoy!
I did not mind the fact that the cacher profiles were of people with a tremendous amount of finds under their belts. I may not ever get my count up that high, but I can still have the same amount of fun searching for caches.
As far as the way the book was written, I only found a couple of spelling and grammar errors. The book was written on a level that most everyone should be able to understand. High scholars may get bored without the 50-cent words, but the overall population will have no problem reading and understanding the book.
This is the only book on geocaching that I have read, so I can't make any comparisons. As of right now, I feel that I have enough information and don't need to get any other books on geocaching.
