I’ve read about them in the paper

A little later the three found themselves back in the nursery which, apart from the bedrooms, was the only room they felt they had a right to be in. The scuffed blue brick was where they had left it, and everything was as before. I’ve read about them in the paper. The boys stared at him as they absorbed this and could not speak, for they knew that the business of newspapers was momentous: earthquakes and train crashes, what the government and nations did from day to day, and whether more money should be spent on guns in case Hitler attacked England.

Beware- I ordered books totaling over $25 for free shipping and they split it nto two orders with identical dates and charged me for shipping. This is as dirty a game as there is. After several years of good service Amazon has decided to stoop to a new low. Almost immediately there is no way to fix the order or to lave a complaint.

First, be aware that this is a tiny book. It could fit in a large shirt pocket. In all fairness, though, it is called the "Canoeists LITTLE Book of Wisdom." Each page has several little bits of advice in very large print. I just read the entire book in 20 minutes and I was reading slow and I was also disracted by phone calls. I am baffled at how another reviewer said they read this booklet over a period of several days and laughed at it's humor. The entire book would fit on a restaurant placemat! And it's humor, if you can call it humor, was as lame as it it gets. This book is simply a rip-off.

But it is not the size of the book or it's lack of humor which is so disappointing. It's the fact that it contains no useful information whatsoever. Much of the information presented is such common sense that it should not even be in the book. Much of the rest is either wrong or totally contradictory. For example, it advises you to not take anything on a canoe trip that you don't absolutely need. Then it goes on to list all kinds of frills and totally unnecessary things that you should take! If you took everything that it says you must take, you wouldn't be able to even fit in your canoe. In addition, it tells you that you absolutely have to know certain knots or techniques but it doesn't tell how to do them. A simple picture of the knot would have taken less space in the book than it took for the advice to learn to tie it. On top of that, most of the information is just plain useless and frivolous. I could find several examples of this on any page of the booklet! OK, let me try this: I am going to open the book randomly right now and see what the first bit of "wisdom" is. Here it is: "Give someone who loves canoeing a canoe book for Christmas." How enlightening! Here's another randomly chosen "gem": "Canoes should show some battle scars. Shows you're a canoeist not a canoer!" Or, how about this one: "No one likes a mile bagger or a river bagger or a rapids bagger." After a few minutes of reading this nonsense you will be angry if you paid money for this booklet

I am an experienced canoeist myself and I find this book to be virtually useless. I would never even think of recommending this to a beginning canoeist or anyone else, for that matter. For a beginner, it would not only be worthless, but it is filled with misinformation and I cannot imagine an experienced canoeist finding anything of value in this booklet at all. If I had one hour to come up with useful advice for canoeists, I could come up with vastly better advice than that contained in this book. In fact, I did not find one single bit of useful information in this book. That is not an exaggeration.

This booklet is lame. Don't waste your money. If you still want to read it, see if your local library has it or find it in a bookstore. You can read the entire thing while you stand there. I get the strong impression that the author of this booklet just got the idea one day to write some junk down, have it published cheaply, and hope buyers who couldn't actually see it before buying it were suckers.

I took this book along on a three day canoe trip. Three of us sat in camp howling with laughter at Cliff's humor. I find this book highly entertaining, and has a lot of useful information. Its great to have along while you are doing a shuttle or driving to the put-in.
