Product Description

Review

David Clark, Master Mariner and Admiralty Pilot, says This an ideal book for learning the art of astro navigation. It is the perfect book for navigation students, both professional and leisure orientated. --David Clark, Maritime Master

About the Author

Jack Case is a retired naval officer and experienced navigator who became a teacher when he left the sea. He taught navigation not only to sailors but also to students of mathematics and geography and was able to demonstrate the important links between these subjects. Over many years, he developed the art of teaching navigation in an interesting way so that it could be understood by students of all ages. Many of the author's adult students, including small boat owners and yachtsmen, expressed the need for an easily read and un-complicated book to help them to understand astro navigation. Hence the reason for writing this book.

Format: Paperback
A very rare thing - an instruction book that is actually a good read. Even if I wasn't interested in navigation, I would enjoy reading this book simply for the huge amount of information it provides about the world in which we live. The fact that it also gives you a good grounding in practical navigation is an extra bonus. The diagrams are uncomplicated and easy to understand, exactly what is needed to back up the many detailed explanations and demonstrations.

Excellent source of information. Easy to follow, with excellent explanations, and practical examples to help understand the concepts of navigation by the stars. I bought this book as a mental exercise and I am delighted with the result, Jack Case is an excellent teacher, and I strongly recommend this book which can be purchased at a reasonable price.

Helpful whilst I'm currently studying for my NC in Nautical Science. Backs up the classroom based learning I'm getting and helps me to make sure I understand the subject. Easy to read and understand. Good explanations and diagrams to help you get what it's trying to say.

I enjoyed this book very much. I started reading this book but put it down until I had read his supplementary book "Applying Mathematics to Astro Navigation." After I read that book, I was much better able to consume this book Both books are wonderful!

I found this book really helpful. It's very clear, with step by step explanations, so very good if you're starting from scratch. This is the best book on astro-navigation I've come across.
