This is an unashamable plug for Paddy Dillion's book. Its really excellent! Even the "foreigners" we met were using it- as it is both more accurate and relevent than the alternatives. If you think its too heavy, as my ultra light nut thought, just do what he did and cut it up- but don't leave for the GR20 without it." Posted on www.Outdoorsmagic.com discussion site, July 2006 'Paddy provides everything to know before tackling the route.' Strider LDWA, August 2006 This book is not only a good book, but a down to earth practical book. Paddy gives you all the pre trek beta, and doesn't hide anything. The photos in the book are excellent and leave you in no doubt of the breathtaking scenery. The recent new maps are an excellent improvement and make its usage far easier than the previous edition (impartial feedback). The Aitchison-Jones Walker's Handbook 2007

Paddy Dillon's excellent book is well worth the 302 grams it will cost you to carry it.
I was happy to find that the Amazon associate was selling the latest edition of the Guide, because even on a classic walk like the GR20, refuges and routes are changed and the walker needs to have the latest information to hand.
The text is well laid out in sensible daily tranches, with good small scale maps and height diagrams.
The only thing I found lacking was the absence of any credit for the cartographic designer, who has done such a good job of the topographical diagrams.
I have already started arduous training with two of my children for this fabulous hike in three months time. Dillon's overview is comprehensive and useful.
have used other books by the same publishers and they are really good ( the gr10 trail ),,,but l wont know untill l get there .but it will give me the confedence to go and do the walk ...and chalenge myself ...happy camping...
