    I give it four stars for what it is, which is a beginner's guide to backpacking. I don't think experienced hikers would get anything out of it that they haven't already known for years. Some of the advice is a total "duh," even to someone who lacks experience. However, I can see this book being a very useful reference, especially the sections on weather and first aid. There are a lot of great suggestions for reducing weight, conserving fuel, and making a hiking or packpacking experience more comfortable and enjoyable.Any gear advice should be taken with a grain of salt, since gear - and especially lightwear gear- is always evolving. But there's plenty of the kind of information that never becomes outdated!”

    This is an excellent resource with all of the basic (and not-so-basic) info one needs for having a healthy and safe experience hiking, camping, and backpacking. Much of its "everyday wisdom" can be adapted to easy car camping or more rigorous backcountry camping. I'm an intermediate outdoorsman, and I think the book works great as an introduction to outdoor life.Books of this nature are always in danger of being outdated by new technology, but this one has enough of a foundation to make up for any of the shortcomings it has from being written in 1997. It's a slim volume at under 200 pages, but filled with a lot of helpful information.

    Everyday Wisdom: 1,001 Expert Tips for Hikers was a quick and easy read. There was a lot of good information for someone completely new to the subject (that's me). I think that the information in the book can and should be put to good use if you intend to go out for short to medium length hikes; I would expect nothing more than a week or so. Anything longer than that and I would expect you should probably check in to a more thorough source.
