New to metal detecting? Want to start hunting without a long learning curve? This QuickStart Guide is short and to the point, intended to get the reader familiar with metal detectors, their operation and accessories, then into the field to find great stuff. Those who already have a detector and a few accessories can start reading this book over breakfast and be out in the field hunting productively before lunch.

This isn't an exhaustive guide to everything you'll ever want to know about metal detecting. It's not a complete course in treasure hunting. It's a quick but thorough read from a detectorist who's been swinging a machine long enough to know how to do it successfully, but who hasn't forgotten what it feels like to be just beginning and needing a way to start smart.

The 108-page softcover contains everything you need to get out there for a productive hunt:

  • a helpful glossary of terms
  • an overview of the hobby and various specialization options
  • information about equipment, hunting safety and etiquette
  • how and where to find places to hunt
  • cleaning, preserving and displaying your finds
  • a special bonus section contains resources about the hobby
  • nine black & white photographs and illustrations

The handy pocket-sized book is intended to be used, not just read. It has a film-laminated cover, providing greater durability for use in the field, and its 5 x 8 size is easy to fit in your field bag. It retails for $7.95 and readers will find extended information at its website, Detecting101.com.


Sustainable Metals Management

What s in a name? What, in particular, is metals management all about? I suspect that my colleagues assumed that I would have a good answer, given that the endowed Sandoz Chair I occupied from 1992 until my retirement in 2000 was entitled Environment and Management, and at INSEAD I created a Center for Management of Environmental Resources (CMER). Metals are a subset of resources, et voila! However, in all honesty, management, as such, was never my core competence (to use another phrase popularized by business schools). Here comes the shocking secret. We used the word management in those titles because INSEAD is a business school where everything has to have an application to business. For my colleagues at INSEAD management is what we supposedly teach. Good management, they (we) think, distinguishes successful enterprises from unsuccessful ones. For some of our graduates, management is what they give professional advice to corporate clients about. For the rest of our graduates it is the umbrella word that describes their choice of career. The implication conveyed by our choice of words is that metals can be regarded as one category of environmental resources, and that resources including environmental resources can be managed, in somewhat the same way that a corporation can be managed. It is not even too far-fetched to suggest that long run sustainability might be a management problem."
