New Edition Out Now | The Bluffer's Guide to Hiking
Simon Whaley updates the ultimate survival manual for walkers.
Never again confuse LEJOG with JOGLE, a Munro with a molehill, or a Corbett with a cairn. Bask in the admiration of your fellow enthusiasts as you pronounce confidently on the comparative merits of an Active Explorer and a Wainwright, and effortlessly learn how to solve any imponderable problem in the Great Outdoors.
The guide coaches readers on how to become all-round hiking bluffers. There are chapters covering the ins and outs of trespassing, survival techniques and what to never ever leave behind on the kitchen table. There's even one on how to navigate an outdoor shop (which The Independent called 'hilarious').
A 5-million-copy bestselling series, The Bluffer's Guides® have been helping people out of sticky situations for over four decades. Now relaunched, they're back – and not just in paperback. E-books are available from all major online bookstores. Bluffer's mission is to eradicate social embarrassment from this world, and (with the help of their witty experts) they're well on their way to doing just that.
The Sunday Telegraph described the original series as containing 'an amazing amount of solid fact disguised as frivolous observation' and Daily Mail hailed the guides as providing a 'means to apparent instant erudition without actually having to know or study anything.'
Simon has been wandering aimlessly for years and is still trying to locate magnetic north. He has trodden many footpaths, bridleways and cowpats in the course of exploring the British countryside, and has discovered that holding the map the right way up sometimes helps. Readers of Country Walking and Country & Border Life magazines have followed in his footsteps for several years, showing a refreshing confidence in his professed ability to find some of the best hikers' pubs in the country. For his forthcoming midlife crisis, Simon is planning to walk the South West Coastal Path. Having spent his early career in banking, and latterly in local government, he has realised that the best way out of any situation is to get up and start walking.
