Hardly "pocket size",
This review is from: The Natural Navigator Pocket Guide (Hardcover)
Just purchased the 'full size' hardback copy of "The Natural Navigator" by Tristan Gooley as part of the wife's Xmas. (Size is 22cms x 16cms.) After some thought decided to get her the advertised 'pocket size' version as well so she could take it with her when she goes walking. I purhased this, in hardback, only to find it is in fact 20.5cms x 13.5cms in size. Just under 'full size' version. Not really what I was expecting, I was expecting something that would actually fit inside a normal pocket (as implied) for easy access and reference. The content is brilliant etc, no complaint there. Would Amazon consider printing the dimensions of a book when they advertise it? (especially 'pocket size' versions!) It would be a useful exercise to enable customers to visualise the book, especially those advertised as 'pocket' type publications.

As you have both editions, you are ideal for answering my question: is the content in both books the same, with the "pocket" edition just smaller, or is it abridged?

Amazon do normally state the dimensions of books. This book is clearly described as: Product Dimensions: 13.4 x 20.6 cm.
