Sunday Times

There was a ‘mini-review’ of the book in yesterday’s Sunday Times Culture section’s seasonal selection of the books of 2010. Here it is in its entirety:

‘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.’
