Though really a reference manual, I read this cover to cover (skipping the chapter on trekking poles) in preparation for a backpacking trip. Kristin includes great photographs and easy to follow step by step instructions, including on the field fixes. The only reason for 4 starts versus 5 is that I haven't tried any of the fixes, so I can't review the success of the tips.

After reading, I will certainly be packing some seam grip and a pack hip replacement buckle on my next adventure.

I really enjoyed this book. She is more of a camper than a backpacker, but she has lots of good advice for fixing all kinds of things. The book is nicely arranged by type of gear and the author's explanations are clear and straightforward. She is honest about 'if its this way, send it off to here' for fixes that are more complicated.
