    If you are running whitewater for canoe, kayak, rafting, even rescue or river crossings; Get this book! I've been learning to run whitewater in canoes and kayaks (Grade 3+) for 1.5 years now and this book was indispensable in increasing my breadth and depth of knowledge. It was recommended to me by a whitewater instructor and I'm recommending it on. So, why do I like this book so much: +Breadth, it's purpose is to make you a better 'all rounder'.

I've been learning to run whitewater in canoes and kayaks (Grade 3+) for 1.5 years now and this book was indispensable in increasing my breadth and depth of knowledge. It was recommended to me by a whitewater instructor and I'm recommending it on. So, why do I like this book so much: +Breadth, it's purpose is to make you a better 'all rounder'. Covering areas such as the basic principles of safety, planning, communication, leadership, risk, scouting rapid techniques. Rather than just focusing on the 'technical aspects'; +Structure, the book is well structured (Main parts are 'White Water Safety', 'White Water Rescue', 'Care of Victims', and 'Access & Recovery'). In particular I like that the book very clearly distinguishes between the two aspects of 'rescue' then 'recovery'. I find some articles and discussions blur the line between these two; +Pictures, there are heaps of them. Including sequences. This makes understanding what is written much easier; +Style, nothing is assumed and techniques and equipment are explained in detail. As an example, there is 10 pages on reach and throw rescues, and this does not include the equipment involved. the simple throw bag has 4 pages dedicated to it. Another item of the style is the willingness to cover all things in detail, from the simple 'reach' through to the more advance 'live bait' rescue technique. There is a feeling from reading the book that the author is down to earth and considers 'the basics' just as important as the more advanced techniques.
