Quite informative and well written , just the kind of info a beginner need's and good info for someone that has been involved in the hobby for a while . A very good reminder of thing's that you already know but may need to be reminded of .

I have recently retired and decided to take up a new hobby--metal detecting--at the ripe old age of 63. I've done a lot of reading and watching videos on the topic in the past few weeks. This book is one of the best ones I've read for someone like me with no hands on experience--yet. It is very thorough, includes many recommendations on exactly which detectors and other accessories to buy, which was greatly appreciated. It also has many website links that I went through extensively. The book also goes beyond beginner level and gets into what I consider intermediate level nomenclature. In the past few days, I've literally ordered (from the internet) my first Detector, digging tools, belt pouch, pinpointing tool, and a number of other incidentals totally based on author, Tim Kerber's advice. After spending about $600, I'm anxiously waiting for all the equipment to arrive so I can break it all in come the end of this week. Tim covered the subject in a way that newbies and intermediate level detectorists will find an easy read while at the same time entertaining and easily understood. I can find only one person in my small town that is already metal detecting so I've had no one to lean on to make the learning process easier/quicker. Neither is there a club locally for this interest. With the wealth of information available through the internet though, I feel confident going to the next level and immersing myself in dirt fishing! Thanks Tim, for the great book. I'm using the heck out of it going back time and again studying details of what you had to say....

Having been detecting for about 6 months & accumulating hundreds of hours behind a MD, I thought I knew quite a bit about this hobby. After reading through this book I now feel like a rookie holding a MD for the very first time. I can't wait to get back out & put my newfound knowledge to work in the field. Very easy read, with enough explanation but nothing too intense that it's over the readers head. I think that this author really knows his stuff when it comes to MDing & it shows in the way he passes this knowledge on to new & experienced hobbyists alike. Thank you for supplying me with the tools necessary to take my detecting to the next level! 5 stars!!!

Very comprehensive treatment of the subject of metal detecting, ranging from how to choose your equipment to how to value and care for the items you find. I've been interested in learning more about metal detecting ever since reading Mango Lucky, by Bill Myers.Great resources listed in the Appendices, and excellent tips on metal detecting protocol and manners.Overall, an excellent book. Tim, you got me hooked!

I've got to say I'm quite impressed. The book was easy to read, very informative, and covered the subject well. Filled with useful advice and tips on choosing the right equipment, finding the best places to metal detect, and how to find the good stuff.If you're interested in metal detecting, get this book!!

I have always had an interest in MD'ing, but not the time to give it a try. I recently ran in to a fellow on the Bitterroot river here in Montana, and was quite fascinated with listening to some of his finds and adventures. I purchased this book on my kindle, got about halfway through and started researching Metal Detectors. In addition to the fact that the author recommends the Garret AT Pro, so do many other folks. Also, I particularly wanted something I could take in the rivers and creeks without a worry. I received my MD today from , and plan to hit the boat launches on the Bitterroot tomorrow!As the title suggests, this book is truly for "Beginner & Beyond." Written in an enjoyable and very informative way, with Tim explaining the logic of the way he and his son operate through all aspects of the sport. Definitely glad that I bought this book. I will be ordering the hard copy to take with me to the field. Thanks for a GREAT job Tim.

I purchased a detector mid fall of this year without much thought of there being a season for this hobby. I was only able to go out a couple of times before I had to pack everything in because of the cold. So now I'm spending my "hobby time" figuring out what to prepare for in the spring (I've committed, I can't think of anything else). This book answered most of the questions I had bouncing around in my head and highlighted some areas of the hobby that I will definitely take seriously when I get started. There is a great run down of equipment and how to use it, best times to go, lingo (so when we join that certain FB page we'll know what people are talking about) and plenty of practical advice. Without getting specific, during the couple of times I was able to go out this year I immediately started some bad habits that I will now know to correct when I *really* begin next year. I'll also have a more confident technique in looking for treasure. In a nut shell this book definitely set a standard for a solid beginners guide on everything from etiquette to life hacks that help with the hobby.
