Summary:

Human echolocation is simple science that can be easily understood and put into practice in a very short time. Soon, you will have an entirely new perspective on your surroundings and a whole new confidence level in your life. There is no need to rush into it or practice in public if you are not comfortable. Learn the concepts on your own time, in the comfort of your own home. Echolocation can be a great supplement to other forms of O&M, using it once in a while as necessary, or it can be one of your primary modes of orientation allowing you to see in great detail and even go “sight-seeing”.

From the basic principles of echolocation and how you can use it to improve your orientation and mobility training to the science of sound waves and how you can refine your skills and begin to implement active echolocation in your daily life, this book is written for blind and sighted people alike and can be easily understood by everyone. It has been used by mobility professionals around the world and is the very first book of its kind offering this type of in-depth information on echolocation.

    This book steps through the basics of how humans can utilize their natural ability to echolocate, just like dolphins and bats. It's a little different, in that we have to use the audible spectrum of sound, but other than that, the concepts are all the same. The book is a simple breakdown of some fairly intricate concepts to help anyone interested in realizing this amazingly innate human talent. Learning echolocation has changed my life and can change yours too.
