Kelsey needs to put away his pride and hire an editor. His writeups are far more confusing than they need to be with important information scattered throughout and entire paragraphs dedicated to unimportant trivia. Each section needs to be read and absorbed in its entirety which isn't a big deal while planning a trip but makes it difficult to parse while actually in the field.
I realize Kelsey is superhuman but his timescales reflect this. Casual canyoneers would do well to double his estimated times.
I also realize that Kelsey has been doing this for far longer than those newfangled GPS's have been around but it would be nice to include some coordinates. I'm not as good at navigating as Kelsey is so having some UTM coords would have saved my group quite a bit of time.
If you're canyoneering in the Colorado Plateau you really have no choice but to buy this book. The places it takes you are worth going, just try not to use this guide as a sole source of information.
If you're a technical canyoneer, no other book comes close to this one in guiding you to the best slot canyons on the Colorado Plateau.
Most 'sour grapes' type of reviews of this book are from folks who've been loathe to reveal what they thought were there personal secrets. Humbug!
I say, "Welcome!" and enjoy...
