A guide book or travel guide is "a book of information about a place designed for the use of visitors or tourists". It will usually include information about sights, accommodation, restaurants, transportation, and activities. Maps of varying detail and historical and cultural information are often included.

Caving – also known as spelunking in the United States and Canada and potholing in the United Kingdom and Ireland – is the recreational pastime of exploring wild cave systems (as distinguished from show caves). In contrast, speleology is the scientific study of caves and the cave environment. The challenges involved in caving vary according to the cave being visited; in addition to the total absence of light beyond the entrance, negotiating pitches, squeezes, and water hazards can be difficult.

This is a good introductory book for new cavers as well as a handy reference for experienced cavers. However, the section on lighting is a little out of date (but still usable). In the clothing, the author frequently makes reference to the brand name, Capilene, instead of more generic terms for polyester garments. Overall though, this is the most readable of any introductory caving book that I've read.

Much info for first timers! Great book!! A great guide for safety, gear needed, caving techniques, and weather you are up to the task of caving!

A gift to my grandson. He liked it and I think is using it as he explores caves. I'll ask him.

Paul's a good friend and a great caver; I can't think of very many people who would be better qualified to write this book. He's done an admirable job of presenting both a good introduction to caving as well as providing some more advanced material for folks who have been caving for some time. I could nitpick some of the presentation - but overall the book is very well crafted. (I especially enjoyed the dedication - thanks, Paul!)
