Can’t put the darn thing down This is packed with wonderful stuff. Beautiful illustrations, practical and just plain smart advice on every page, some of the best insider’s tips I’ve ever read anywhere, great recipes, all the fundamentals to help you enjoy (and maybe even survive) the outdoors as much as possible. Pretty much like a couple of hundred issues of the magazine squeezed into one easy-to-follow, browsable-as-hell volume.

Wow! Field and Stream “Got it” I may sound like one of the judges on “Dancing with the Stars”, but Field and Stream nonetheless “got it” with this book. They hit a home run, a “wow” type book, one of the best in its genre to come off the presses lately (I rate it a strong 9 out of 10 🙂 In this day and age when a lot of people don’t like to read books as much as they used to, what with tv, dvds, and the internet, this book will make you want to read again. It has 374 tips divided into four sections; camping, fishing, hunting, and survival. Each tip is complete with excellent photos, very good illustrations, and a superb graphic layout. The information has been written by a cadre of Field and Stream’s finest writers; experts in their respective fields. The colors and layout reach out and grab you, and make you want to put the book down and go implement the information you just read. I can’t wait to see if they ever come up with a sequel to this title, and if their main competitor, Outdoor Life, can ever come up…

Thorough But Simplistic This book attempts to cover as many different topics as possible. So, as it tries to be a jack of all trades it is not really a master of any. Each topic is a relatively short snippet of information. However, the snippet tends to be the most useful and/or interesting information about the topic. The topics are only organized by major grouping: hunting, fishing, etc. Within each grouping there is no organization at all. You can find closely related topics at opposit ends of the group and scattered within–it would be more helpful if they were kept together. So, because you can’t run to it and look up a topic as needed, I see this book not so much as an encyclopedia but more of a night stand/coffee table peruser.
