Thanks, qjs. I had forgotten about that book. It would be a good addition to my library.

I'd like to read this article, but it says I have to be a Plus Member of the Globe and Mail. I'd rather not subscribe. Does anyone have a link to the article that I might be able to read without a subscription?

Thanks,

HJ

Thank you. A well written article.

A shame, but indeed it doesn't sound like he really knew what he was doing. Books are wonderful things, but there is a danger of thinking you know more than you really do. It may all sound so good on paper, but Murphy is ever at your heels.

Thank you for mentioning the Dunning–Kruger effect. I've noted it before with noob hikers. Now I have a name for it.

Ann posted a link above and as far as I know, the MODS here frown on posting complete news articles regardless of appropriate credits included.

Ann,

You most certainly do have (more than just some) insight. Your post was one of the most cogent and articulate posts I've ever read on any forum. I want to thank you personally for your intelligent analysis.
