Although the main title is cave exploring, the subtite hints at the book's focus; leadership and safety during cave trips. This emphasis does not make for an exciting book but it does delve into details of how to do a good safe job leading groups into caves.

Gear and caving techniques are discussed quite well and there are ample illustrations of things better understood in a view rather than text description. There is an index which I like. Chapters progressive in a logical manner from introduction, through basic caving, then into the different techniques used in progressively more difficult caves. Very good. ( )
