We were based just north of Orosei on the east coast and followed the routes for Mt Corrasi, Tiscali, Gola Su Gorrupo, Punto La Marmora and Cala Goloritze. Using the guide and pre-loaded maps on my mobile phone/GPS we managed to complete all we set out do without any serious problems route finding.
Having previous used Charles Davis' guides for walking in Mallorca I can only use this as a comparison (this might be a bit unfair are they're for different countries). Charles' guides use distance and minutes between waypoints as well as natural reference points where possible to describe the route. These measurement give extra reassurance when you're not sure if you're on the right path. Paddy's guides seemed to contain less detail and due to a lack of natural reference points on some walks the directions felt vague and confusing. The maps weren't detailed to use as sole reference but this seems to be a universal issue with all Sardinian maps.
Alot of the walks we did were to attractions and essential tourist destinations so this guide helped us get the most of our trip. I'd recommend this book and the walking in Sardinia was amazing. Whether it's a walk to a breathtaking beach or to the top of the highest mountains this book has a walk for everyone.
I particularly appreciate the fact that the author includes details about public transport and that so many of the walks can in fact be accessed without a car, despite the remoteness of the terrain. As he points out it does take careful planning and public transport in Sardinia can be tricky, but the fact that he himself used buses to get around when he was researching the book gives me confidence that we can also.
Thanks to this book, I have been able to construct an itinerary that will enable us to do at least five of the walks when we go there next September and I am immensely grateful for the help it has given me.
