"The Natural Navigator is a wonderfully stimulating book. Tristan Gooley sidesteps technology to celebrate our own powers of observation, and suggests that the art of natural navigation is something we should never have forgotten" (Michael Palin)
"Gooley is a fine writer with a philosophical passion for the subject ... his advice is at times glorious in its simplicity and fascinating in its execution ... his advice is so well structured that even enthusiastic amateurs will find plenty to get to grips with" (Laurence Mackin Irish Times)
"Wonderful... This is the sort of charming and inspiring book you want to recommend and buy for others. A must for any lover of the outdoors" (Tim Jepson Daily Telegraph)
"The best nature writing changes the way you experience the world. Tristan Gooley's The Natural Navigator will teach you how to find your way using not just the moon, sun and stars but spider's webs, tennis courts and even ruts on a track. He throws in entertaining anecdotes from the history of navigation and from his own impressive Atlantic journeys, but really he's giving you an addictive hobby, and a newly refined sense of time and place" (The Sunday Times)
"You enjoy the walk more if you're trying to spot the little clues rather than look at the map" (Evan Davies)

I was hooked from the introduction! Reading this makes you want to put the book down and go outside to check a few observations yourself! Probably not a good thing to say in a review but then this book is about encouraging you to "do" as much as to read and learn. And Tristan does this very well indeed.
We miss so much these days in rushing around - follow just some of Tristan's natural navigation hints and you'll get so much more from even a simple walk in the park!
A great book for anyone who enjoys being outside and loves to stand and stare before moving on. I'm hooked!
The sun, moon, stars and weather can be used at sea to give just as good an idea of direction and the birds are more useful at sea than on land. I don't think I will be ripping out the chartplotter and throwing it overboard yet, but I will definitely be taking more note of the natural clues on offer. The stories about what the navigators in the Pacific can achieve are fascinating. Recommended.'
Superb book, I have already recommended it to many.
