Simple and useful information written in a way that is easily understood and entertaining.

It is a great book, you will not want to put it down. It has interesting facts, and it is fun and funny.
The reading is a lot more digestible than the Armed Forces survival or the SAS survival book, but they all have their value.
Read them all and then go out and practice.

The cartoons are a little corny, as the author admits, but this information is very valuable for anyone that likes to hike, walk, or go for a drive. This information could save your life.

This is an overview or tip guide for outdoor survival. For the most part it is fairly easy to read. In some places, the tone does seem to be condescending but this could also be an attempt at humor. Without knowing the writer, in a text format, these types of humor are rather difficult. Little to no references for fact checking or additional reading are left which is heartily disappointing. Numerous references are dated and/or regional which may cause confusion to outsiders. There are a number of good tips scattered within the pages though. Overall, an adequate read.

A book that represents great knowledge, and not thrown at you kind of information. A context i stole from a brilliant man albert einstein. As a younger generation reader, this read avoids movie mentality as regards to immortality towards mother nature. Im sure most know who those people are. However if you are looking for a book that will teach you in depth, non-boring knowlege on survival, well here it is. Thank you cody.
