Bruce Tremper the author is one of the most respected guys in the world when it comes to avalanche science. Though that is not really why his book is so recommended. It is the fact that it is a fairly entertaining and easy book to read. He puts it out there in layman's terms and sprinkles a little humor in there. Just about everyone can understand it.Saw this book quoted the hundreds time here. Seems to be really a bible...? If so, what makes it different to other avy books?
He has a new book out called Avalanche Essentials: A Step by Step System for Safety and Survival.
I think I am going to go pick it up today actually. I've read staying alive in Avalanche terrain maybe a dozen times now. It is a great way to refresh your memory of what you need to pay attention to in the field. I suspect this new book is just as awesome, maybe even more so.
