The Guide's Guide to Guiding by Garth Thompson, Jacana Media (3rd Ed.)
I quite enjoyed this book. Thompson's writings on guiding theory and philosophy changed my perspective on guiding, and gave me new insights into the craft.

This book is recommended for all current and would-be guides (of any type).

Thought it was an excellent read JL - and quite humurous, especially the cartoons that go with the guide descriptions!
