Geverifieerde aankoop. Decided to get the Kindle version to save weight and regret it - many figures with annotations are way too small to read, even with the font size set at max. So frustrating as topics such as suitable knots for hammock use, are described with graphics and the supporting text can't be read. Just buy the actual paper book and save yourself lots of frustration. I have been trying to decide whether or not I am going to change from being a "tent backpacker" to a "hammock backpacker".
I was not feeling very confident about my decision, especially since I had just purchased a brand new Kelty lightweight tent! Needless to say, I really enjoyed the ease of reading this book. It only took me a few hours to complete, and the illustrations were pretty cute, but also very informative. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who is "on the fence" about whether or not to switch from being uncomfortable on the hard, rocky ground, or willing to be able to get a good's night sleep while out in the woods, or even in the yard!
First I love the first edition.
The Ultimate Hang: An Illustrated Guide To Hammock Camping
Loved it so much, a year later, I bought the second edition. Content is 5 stars. Formatting is 1 star. First, there are frequent non-links to page 20, etc. And in the kindle version, there are no page numbers. So what exactly was the point of that? Second, the graphics which were so very helpful in the first edition render on a 17" laptop with the lettering so small as to illegible. Even with a magnifying glass. Third, the graphics are out of order with the text, so you keep having to page back and forth and search for the illustrations that match the text.
Fourth, the entire book is repeated twice. In other words, the book finishes halfway through. The first edition was excellent, simple, straight-forward and fun. This one has a lot more information, but it is so frustrating digging it out, I'll recommend the first edition, even though it doesn't have all the content this one does. Do a rewrite, please. People need this book.
Fix the formatting problems. Break up the graphics so they render larger. Reorder things so the text and graphics fall together.

Make the non-links work. Add page numbers. The info is excellent. First rate. These include:. TUH lists a ton of cottage manufacturers, but anything in print becomes outdated as companies go out of business and new ones start up. My own Dream Hammock Danger Bird missed the list. So I'll list this as a con, but only a slight one. The reader can learn about hammock hanging in the book and find hammock manufacturers through Trailspace. Buy it, read it, and enjoy your hammock! With the the AT so close to me in North Carolina and just the general wooded trails, I'd love to get into hammocking in the future.
Even though it may seem silly to others to get a book, I say if you want to do it right it'll be worth it. Looks like a fun book! I don't think it's silly to get a book at all I still grab my ancient copy of The Backpacker's Field Manual from time to time, especially when I'm about to do something unfamiliar. It's a bit outdated, but there is still good stuff in it. I've got TUH in ebook for Nook. The only con to that is the illustrations can't be expanded to full page. Which makes some of them hard to see.
I have this book too nook version but haven't gotten round to reading it yet. One of these days I ended up purchasing this book a few months back and I've read it three or four times. I'm not into hammocking yet, but this book has provided great info and is a fun read. Not only will I be more comfortable in my search for gear, but I have a great reference source. Again, great review G00SE! I finally got round to reading the book too and really enjoyed it. It's an easy read, great 'handmade' illustrations, and has good tidbits about backpacking and camping in general.
Derek's website goes into even more detail, providing an unending source of information. It's one of my favorite sites in fact.
Videos, apps, reviews, you name it. It's great to see a guy turn his passion into such a useful resource for others. May 28, Robert E. Whitten 31 reviewer rep. Very good book for beginners.
This book gave an understanding of hammock camping. It gives you the knowledge to ask the questions you need to know. The reasons for not giving 5 stars is no book can answer all question. A must-read for anybody just starting in hammock camping. I recommend electronic copy from Amazon as it's cheaper. Pros Thoroughly covers crucial and less crucial topics Easy to read Helpful illustrations In one night, I learned more about hammocks than in two years of trial 'n error. Cons Gear junkies like me suddenly want one of everything discussed in the book!
