On the back cover:
It was not by accident that John Lynn, better known as the 'Norfolk Wolf', has become one of the country's leading authorities on metal detecting. His many years of experience and no-nonsense style of field testing - coupled with his ability to explain in simple terms the less understood principles involved in metal detecting - have led him to become a sought after detecting authority by many people who already considered themselves experienced detectorists. It was with these people in mind (although beginners will benefit from studying this work) that John has written 'Advanced Detecting' Thought Provoking and at times hard-hitting, this book is a must have for the thinking detectorist wishing to improve on his or her skills...no matter what their level. While many other words have been written for the beginner or those contemplating getting started in the hobby, this is the first book that explains in an easy to read style, every problem or situation that a detectorist is likely to encounter and, more importantly, what causes them and how they can be overcome. Dealing with mineralisation, understanding the use of the sensitivity and discrimination controls, coil selection, what is coke and reading and understanding signals are just some of the intriguing and often misunderstood topics that John discusses. The 16 chapters in this book, amply illustrated by photographs and diagrams, pass on hard-learnt advice and tips, which will ensure that this book will become the 'Bible' for those genuinely interested in improving and understanding the more advanced principles involved in metal detecting.
