    Survive- anywhere.

    No need for a long review here. This book was written by a professional soldier who was in the SAS, or the Special Air Service. For those not in the know, that's an elite unit of the British Army trained to carry out operations in ALL parts of the world. Eventually, the author became a survival instructor to the SAS, so you can be sure that this guy knows his stuff. <BR/><BR/>The book covers all you'd ever want to know about the essentials of surviving in climates such as: the polar region, mountains, seashores, islands, tropical regions, or even at sea. Here's few of the many topics the book covers: <BR/><BR/>-food, what you can and can't eat <BR/>-animal tracking with numerous pics <BR/>-color pics of edible plants <BR/>-pictures of traps and how to trap things <BR/>-how to handle animals you've killed for food <BR/>-how to make a camp and various shelters <BR/>-knot tying pics <BR/>-first aid <BR/>-color pics of medicinal plants <BR/>-picures of dangerous/poisonous critters <BR/>-things to have in a survival kit <BR/><BR/>A very handy resource for anybody who enjoys outdoor/wilderness activities, it's just a darn good thing to have around in case of emergencies- or even just to look at the pictures! Also recommend Treat Your Own Rotator Cuff if you have a shoulder problem that is interfering with your outdoor activities.

    Awesome Book

    This book is awesome. I read it almost everyday. It explains every type of survival skill from trapping animals to surviving a nuclear holocaust. Some parts I think they could've wrote a little more detail but for the size of the book it still holds alot of information. All in all a great book.

    An incredible wealth of knowledge!

    Wiseman truly understands what it takes for outdoor survival. This book will prepare you for the mental and physical obsticles that you will encounter should you ever be in danger in the wild. I have read it 4 times and continue to read it to keep sharp.

    SUPER-DUPER

    This book is totaly rad. It gives great info on almost any enviroment you may be in. It didn't say to much about the desert, but that hasn't bothered me in the least. As for surviving with extreme temperatures, harsh terrain, and any general situation with may be stuck in, it is a great source of knowledge.

    Survive

    With this book, I can build a better shelter for the Arctic than an Eskimo. This has to be the #1 reference for survival anywhere. Read this book, and remember whats in it. It is a very good book, I would reccomend it for camping, backpacking, sailing, first-aid, or just for info. I never knew you could kill an octopus instantly by turning it inside out.
