Only downside is that there was some confusion I have over the image for creating the lasso. It shows a loop on the end, but then in the very next image with the spring pole it shows that end of the lasso tied around the cord with no loop. And even says "Tie the wire snare to the cord..." Why did I put a loop "the size of a dime" on the end? I have my assumptions but I wish that detail would've been explained even in just one sentence. It also didn't make me want to get out and try to practice making a snare.
Overall, it's definitely going with me when I venture into the woods, worth every penny.
==> Scope: 3/5
However, what the Trapping Bible does cover (i.e. the essentials of snares and traps), it covers well. It very clearly explains the material that is needed and how to rig them, with generally helpful drawings to illustrate.
==> Clarity: 5/5
Moreover, contrary to the SAS Survival Handbook mentioned above, the Trapper's Bible is thin (surprisingly so), and lightweight. You could easily bring it with you on any overnight trip without significantly increasing your load. A huge encyclopedia of traps would be much less useful as it would be too heavy to carry along. My only concern with bringing this Trapper's Bible on a trip is that the paper seems somewhat absorbent - I will have to keep it dry in a plastic bag or something. I would upgrade this category to 5 stars if the cover were plastic-coated.
==> Usefulness in the field: 4/5
Overall, I gave this book a four-star rating because it really focuses on the essentials, making it light enough to bring with you in your pack, as opposed to serving only as an armchair guide.
