Den tryckta boken säljs nu till ”tomtepris”: "Köp minst 2 st och betala bara för hälften"! 

(eller köp 6 st och betala för 3 st, köp 10 st och betala för 5 st osv)

Det är förstås väldigt kul att boken har uppskattats av så många människor från olika delar av världen. Boken innehåller många inspirerande övningar för att uppleva orientering som en rolig och stimulerande aktivitet. Innehållet i boken kan naturligtvis med fördel användas både i orienteringsklubbens ungdomsverksamhet och i skolans undervisning.

Jag hoppas att ännu fler lärare, instruktörer och ungdomstränare blir entusiastiska över att använda den här boken för att lära ungdomarna mer om hur man orientera både i känd och i okänd terräng.

Boken är hittills översatt till 19 språk. Under vintern kommer den också att finnas i tre varianter på tyska. De nationella orienteringsförbunden i Tyskland, Österrike och Schweiz har samarbetat med att översätta boken till tre olika tyska versioner. Dessutom hoppas vi att under maj månad lansera en ny kinesisk version av boken till skolorna i Kina.
