Author did a nice job of explaining the importance of declination and how to take a true bearing vs magnetic bearing.

Nothing much to review here. This isn’t a literary masterpiece. It’s a how-to book.

Still, it should be noted it’s a fantastic resource for learning the basics of map and compass.
