Format: Hardcover
Although it appears intimidating, it's actually quite readable. It happens also to be the very pinnacle of all marine navigation guides; all others refer to it and every navigator/pilot should own a copy.
But (a) it's enormous in both physical volume and weight and (b) it does get updated. What to do? ...
A search on "nga bowditch" will provide you with the current pdf version, chapter by chapter on the web.

Definitely 5 Stars but of course not for everyone. I had a copy years back that I lent out & of course through whatever reason lost track of it. More than a few times I had wished I had it back just for simple reference & personal interest regards to many questions not only I would come up with but others as well. If a person is serious about an occupation on the high seas as a Mariner I certainly believe this book will be a definite asset. No doubt many times a person will be relying on this book for whatever answer whether it be on the seas or in the classroom. Be you a Mariner or a Pilot the book is a wealth of interest & knowledge but of course geared more for the Mariner. Weather Observations, Marine Navigation, Calculations & Conversions,Marine Navigation Glossary, Marine Abbreviations & Acronyms,Tides,Currents, Routing, Planning, etc, etc, etc - It's all here. For the serious Mariner as I would seriously reckon as there's a lot of copies of this book carried aboard on many high seas vessels today as other reviewers have noted. Even in your home bookcase for handy reference if your desires have an interest in this field. Some say this book is the best book so skip the others, just buy this the best book first. Very happy of course with this book for my interests.
