I am giving this this variation one megastar a result of info that follows.This variation states--right at the cover--that it "now offers details on GPS." that's actually actual yet very deceptive. I had anticipated information regarding how you can use GPS besides a map or compass, or utilizing GPS in simple terms. yet as an alternative, the only a few statements approximately GPS simply let you know that GPS is undesirable, and maps and compasses are solid. in the event you glance within the desk of contents, you will not see any bankruptcy approximately GPS. visit the index and also you see merely 3 (that's correct, 3) pages which point out GPS. web page tells us how GPS does not paintings good in forests, canyons, and so forth. Then visit web page 14 - 15, and you will find that Ms. Elgin and the publishers have been in the sort of hurry to take advantage of the good fortune of the unique model, they could not even get the index correct. there's not anything on those pages approximately GPS, yet after all if there have been, it will in basic terms be, back, that GPS is undesirable and maps and compasses are good.Perhaps the writer neglected that on web page 20, the e-book states that maps let you know in regards to the geographic good points of the area,"not simply the best way to get there, as with an international Positioning System." After this, i finished studying, even though I did glance through the ebook for anything priceless approximately GPS. i did not see whatever, and the index does not contradict this as, back, there are just 3 pages which supposedly supply info on GPS.It's unlucky that the author's daughter came upon it essential to dishonestly try to promote extra books with this phony "revised edition." i have ordered the former variation.
