Seems like a very useful resource for everything related to hiking and backpacking. Probably more than I'll need - in this life, at least - but a book I plan to buy; (the one I read was from the library). No doubt a five-star book, but since I'm a novice, I can't really vouch for the validity of Kemsley's advice (at least not yet!).
