Best books-kayak instruction

I believe the best book on how to canoe is Mason’s Path of the Paddle. Paddle Your Own Canoe is also worthwhile, but not really anything newer/better.

What would you kayak folks recommend as the best instructional book for sea kayakers? I’ve heard Seidman is good; Thoughts?


Yes, Seidman’s book is good
It’s called “The Essential Sea Kayaker” and it’s the best of the beginner’s books I’ve seen.
