    Over the years I've compiled lots of info on hammocks & camping on my desktop computer that I don't want to eat up a lot of space on my iPod Touch or iPad. This book consolidates most that info and adds illustrations (what a clever idea). And now I can have access to this info on my mobile devices whether on the trail, car camping with the grand kids or teaching a Scout troop. This is a "must have" book in print format and an essential tool in the digital format.

    As a newbie to hanging I decided to test the waters and purchase this ebook. I have to agree it was a fast read and done well. It is chock full of the duh I knew that and a very good review of trail and camping / hanging edict. That said I will always have this handy as a reference and the illustrations are truly worth a thousand words Happy hanging

    I've been a "hanger" since 2006, and I learned a ton from this book. Derek has covered it all and the illustrations are so clear and concise, even the noob can understand the concepts.
