This is a wonderful, well written and well organized little book, sized to travel with its owner. It fits easily into one's pocket for easy access. It provides valuable information at one's fingertips. One should read this book before climbing or trekking above 7,000 feet (2,000 meters). It could save one's life.
The book is chock full of valuable information, and everything is explained in laymen's language. It explains what altitude sickness is, so that one may recognize its presence, and advises the reader on how to prevent it. It also provides treatment information for the various types of altitude illnesses to which one may fall prey.
This is a must have book for anyone who wants to stay healthy while scaling new heights. If one should think that this book is unnecessary, one need only pause to reflect upon the dedication found on the flyleaf of the book, "To those who died of altitude sickness". Enough said!
The vast, jungle-covered island of Borneo, the third largest in the world, has always held a fascination for Western travellers. This was where head-hunters ran wild and which, according to romantic myth, was rich in gold and diamonds. Today's attractions are of a different kind: trekking through pristine national parks; whitewater rafting on tropical rivers; and some of the very best dive sites in the world.
This new addition to the acclaimed Footprint stable is up-to-date and packed with information and recommendations of where to stay and eat, places to visit and how to get around, as well as a comprehensive background section to help you understand the island's rich and diverse culture.
