The author doesn't really stress the importance of types of camping and how that should effect your purchases. For example weekend camping, holiday camping etc. Your tent and equipment should reflect how much time you intend spending in your tent and how many meals you will cook yourself. For example if you only go away for a few odd weekends a year, what's wrong with gas canisters and battery operated lanterns?
The author obviously loves traditional camping with camp fires and canvas tents and to be honest i miss scout camps too. But if you're a group of lads planning a weekend of camping and beer or a family after convenience, this isn't a book for you. You'd be better off talking to an experienced "camper", so to speak.
This book is more about demystifying the jargon and equipment of camping rather than a guide you'll come back to time and time again. I'm not knocking that but for a book to cover so many things it has to skim the surface of certain things.
If like me you think camping is something you'll be investing in soon, you will find this book a good first step to working out what to buy, how not to destroy your tent the first time you use it and how to make the experience as pleasant as possible.
