Celestial navigation, with its impenetrable-seeming science and unique words, is a subject that warrants a weighty tome. And this is the weightiest tome on the topic that I have come across, with Alan Murray leaving no stone unturned. He wrote it because he felt the existing astro-nav manuals taught by rote, rather than instilling a deeper understanding. If astro-nav were taught in schools, I would not be surprised if this was the textbook that teachers turned to.

Astronav from Square One:
Wish this had been around donkeys years ago when I was studying for my certificates of competency.
In the dark ages!!
Astro-navigation from Square One is a dynamic, understandable and impressive book. It is clear and concise with numerous excellent diagrams that admirably compliment the text, demystifying and simplifying the art of astronavigation. The excellent glossary of terms and language used together with the highlighting of important points make it particularly applicable to teachers, students and those new to the subject.
