Small format book - Important if you want to pack this along

The usual DK excellent graphics

Helpful as a checklist before going outdoors

The sections on Choosing a Campsite, Personal Safety, and Caring for your Feet are particularly good

Too many sections are fine but in some ways outdated including:

 What to wear
 Kinds of packs
 Sleeping equipment
 Portable foods
 Water equipment
 Direction finders
