    Corrigendum

    Please review the ABOUT THE BOOK Section titled "FROM THE CRITICS BOOKNEWS" section for the book GPS Made Easy: Using Global Positioning Systems in the Outdoors by Lawrence Letham. Possibly there is an inadvertent mistake in placing some other books criticism in this section. possibly this must be a review of a chemical engineering or industrial chemistry related book misplaced in the GPS/GIS Section.

    Really easy

    It is really an easy way to learn about GPS, with a very good step-by-step explanation method. I recommend it for beginners.
