I bought Ms W a copy of Beth Leonard's "A Voyagers Handbook" for her birthday and it was a very good move on my part. Most of my "how to do" books have been by some of the crusty old salts like Roth and Hiscock. BL's book is both more modern in it's outloook and written in a manner that the less experienced soul can really appreciate. I also like the way in which she is happy to acknowledge areas were they have gone astray.
Good stuff.
