Read full description of the books:
You want to make smart decisions in avalanche terrain? This book is an incredibly powerful book to help you to accomplish just that. It was recommended reading for a Level 1 Avalanche course (3-day).
The book is densely packed with information and shows you nearly everything you should be aware of when managing your risk in avalanche terrain. There are definitely some sections I skimmed through since it was too science-y or didn't fit my skill level though. As a backcountry newbie, the section on the pros/cons of the different snow tests is fairly valuable. Going back and forth with this book after each tour will help solidify the ideas presented in the book. Re-reading/skimming through this book at the beginning of each season too may also help to make you the right decisions in those early snow conditions.
This book may not really make much sense unless you have already taken an avalanche class because of all the terminology/ideas. I would have been lost if I had read this book prior to taking the class.
