Dutton's Nautical Navigation.
Bowditch, pub #9, which is the basis that all other Navigation books are written on.
The first and the last are the two best, But for complete understanding of the logic involve in Navigation then Bowditch, pub #9, is the best over all.

I am currently going through ASA 107 and have a few books on celestial. I find Burch's book to be very easy to read and understand. FWIW. Starpath sells his book along with a home study course if you want to go that route.
No affiliation with Starpath.

|TQA||Another vote for Mary Bluwitt's book. Leaves out the complex theory and just explains how to do it!|

There's Bowditch American Practical Navigator, and Dutton's Navigation and Piloting, then there's every one else.
Why? experience, I taught Celestial Navigation.

Good Book for celestial nav?
I'm struggling through Celestial Navigation in the GPS Age by John Karl.
I'll continue on through, but are there any other suggestions?
