    Shufeldt kept current, coming out with "The Calculator Afloat" in 1980.

    Speaking of books in this context, my favorite is HH Shufeldt's Slide Rule for the Mariner. I got it in 1972 and it was my introduction to the fundamental cel nav formulas. According to him it was a standard tool for air navigators in the Pacific during WW II.
