This is a nice, well illustrated book that does a great job of introducing the concepts of ultralight backpacking. I wish this had been available when I got started!

Easy read. Good for beginner hikers or someone interested in the concept of hiking lighter. Good overview.

Not bad for the person just coming to ultralight backpacking, but I think Clelland's own book probably has more useful tips.
