When we thing about the number of the good titles devoted to the problem of marine navigation, available today, it appears that most of them are discussing the subject from the more or less same angle. In fact, the ultimate aim of the authors of most of them is to give readers some essential instructions. This book, in contrast, was prepared for those who carry put their work by rote and would like to know more about the basic reason and foundations of what they deal with during their day today activities.

It will also be great for the people willing to extend their knowledge horizons. Many of the points covered in the pages of this volume, have been intentionally repeated, as desired by the author, who wanted to closely follow his line of thought. Such an approach was aimed to let people understand the material easier. In fact, the book was supposed to serve as a supplement to the well known American Practical Navigator publication, but it will also be useful when used separately, as a textbook.

This one used to be very popular book one century back and the contents is still actual and interesting to all future navigators as well as to the practicing professionals wanting to get better and deeper understanding of the subject.
