I borrowed this from my Dad’s collection of outdoor adventure type books a long time ago, but finally got around to reading it. It is really all about the sport, and there is almost no navigation technique in it. For someone totally new to orienteering, it can teach you a lot about where the sport comes from, variations on it, gear, etc. But there is no real map and compass skill taught. The appendix in the back that lists all the map symbols and control descriptions is great, though.
