I’m biased (based solely on how much my understanding of the natural environment has improved by reading his books), but the new book from the brilliant Tristan Gooley is available to pre-order today (from a large shopping website named after a large river ironically). However, don’t just take my word for it …. “He writes with passion, humour and clarity …There’s so much here that I can’t do it justice; chapters on water at night; currents and tides; reading waves; the coast. I learned I have a huge gap in my knowledge in the latter area, despite having spent a large chunk of my life scrambling around it. This is an absolute gem of a book. A must-have for anyone who loves the water.” Lynne Roper, The Outdoor Swimming Society.
