Shane Winser of the Expedition Advisory Centre at the Royal Geographic Society has put together an authoritative handbook with chapters written by contributors at the top of their fields. This book takes you through a step by step guide to planning and running a major expedition to remote places: everything from raising finance to risk assessment is covered, with many practical tips. Taken together with its sister publication Expedition Medicine Expedition Medicine: The Royal Geographical Society with the Institute of British Geographersyou have a comprehensive guide to preparing and undertaking the adventure of a lifetime. Highly recommended. Dr Dick Morgan
I was looking for a book with guideline on expeditions. My main concerns were vehicular and bicycle. While the book covers more type of expeditions that I ever though of, it give good, basic things to look for and advice that can be applied between the different methods. Worth the money to me!
I thought this would provide more specific advise but is very general, and most of the information is common sense. Definitely is not a specialist book, and a few minutes on the internet could provide you with more in-depth expedition advice.
