"I believe this comprehensive new edition will benefit all mariners whether on naval ships, commercial vessels, or leisure craft. We all share the need to navigate well at all times." Admiral Sir Jonathon Band, First Sea Lord and Chief of Naval Staff.

"This new book retains all the fundamental ‘Principles of Navigation’ so that mariners who rely on the computer-powered equipment found on ship's bridges today can turn to an authoritative source for support. Without a resource like this, mariners are at the mercy of whatever software happens to be fashionable at the moment." Lieutenant Commander Peacock.
