    I keep looking for the rest of the book

    To begin with, despite the fact that the Nook overview indicates that this is a 96 page book, the e-book format weighs in at a disappointing 43 pages. I suppose one could whip this book out in a pinch as a quick refresher, but this book does not provide much value vs. dollar spent.

    WOW trusted this would be a good guide for trip to MN forest. GPS fail in dense forest.

    I was so disappointed! If this is suppose to be a backpacking navigation "book" I pity anyone who trusted backpacker magazine to teach about compass navigation. the only thing it would be good for is fodder for fire. Oh wait, its a nook book, its not even good for that either! WASTE OF MONEY!
