    Review of the book –I cannot find any other place to put this so I hope I am in the running.

    I finished “The Joy of Geocaching this morning. I have been reading slowly because I did not want it to end. Paul and Dana were very successful in striking a balance between the technical and the soul of the participants in the sport. I especially enjoyed the human interest stories that were included in the sidebars. The technical information was good and highlighted the basic information needed to participate. The strength of the book,however,is in the people. I am a member of the Tri-State Geocachers,a group located where NY,NJ and Pa come together. We meet each month at a local restaurant for our Eat,Meet &Greet. We share stories have a few laughs and help newcomers to the sport with questions and problems that they might have. We also sponsor Geo-Tech U once a year to offer cachers help with equipment and software and to educate newcomers to the sport. I think that the book captures this spirit of comraderie and mutual support that Geocaching has to offer. I would give the book *** 5 Satellites *** (The Best!)

    The book seems to be a good overview of geocaching. Enjoyed some of the caches featured. This seems to be a very good book for the beginning cacher. Will give them a lot of insight to what the caching thing is all about. Would have liked to had color pics as the b&w photos seem to loose something. I would have to rate this book a 4 out of 5. Good job!

    This is by far the best geocaching related book we have read so far. Yes,we were interviewed for research on this book and have been for other geocaching related articles in the past. There was always something lost when the articles finally came out. The Joy of Geocaching finally got it right. Paul and Dana really did their homework on this book. Having met or cached with some of the people mentioned in this book. The authors picked the right geocachers for their research.
    This book will definitely help anyone just getting started in the sport,as well as giving some good advice to the experienced Geocacher.

    In The Joy of Geocaching the authors introduce the uninitiated to and stir in the experienced an enthusiasm for the growing game of geocaching. They do so in the personal stories they relate as well as by detailing the many varied facets for the sport. I especially enjoyed the points relating to the beneficial aspects of geocaching. I personally have found it a great way to get exercise and to relax and get my mind off the more mundane affairs of life. Read The Joy of Geocaching for yourself and find how your appreciation for the the game will grow!
