In terms of sheer did-you-knows per page it is one of the richest, densest, most rewarding books on nature I have read in a long time...its joy in deduction is infectiously delightful. (James McConnachie The Sunday Times)
Learning so much in The Walker's Guide, the new book from Tristan Gooley, that I might have to take another long walk ... (Nicholas Crane)
I for one will never look at the British countryside in quite the same way again. (Stephen Moss Countryfile Magazine)
Gooley can show the most moonstruck how to interpret their surroundings. Even the intrepid Bear Grylls could learn a trick or two from this book. (The Times)
Anyone interested in walking out of doors at any time would be well advised to read this excellent book. (The Royal Institute of Navigation)
As with his earlier, equally important The Natural Navigator , this text is densely packed with information, engagingly and clearly written ... Every outdoor-lover should have at least one Tristan Gooley book in their library. He's attained national treasure status, as useful and educative as he is endearingly unique. (Jim Perrin The Great Outdoors magazine)

I would have liked some deeper insights into why things are the way they are- a bit more background into the biology, geology, astronomy etc. As it is, this book gives you an awful lot of, admittedly curious, signs to look out for when outdoors, but if you're liked me you may be left thinking 'signs to what?' To often the answer is left open. Unless it's 'to the direction north is in.'
The book is a nice mixture of facts and unusual anecdotes as we are taken from the countryside, via the city to the jungle and back again. I rattled through it quickly but it is so packed with new information I've started re-reading it already in a hope to take it all in. This summer is going to be fun, enjoy!
