Overview

Cody Lundin, director of the Aboriginal Living Skills School in Prescott, Arizona, shares his own brand of wilderness wisdom in this highly anticipated new book on commonsense, modern survival skills for the backcountry, the backyard, or the highway. This is the ultimate book on how to stay alive-based on the principal of keeping the body's core temperature at a lively 98.6 degrees.

In his entertaining and informative style, Cody stresses that a human can live without food for weeks and without water for about three days or so. But if the body's core temperature dips much below or above the 98.6 degree mark, a person can literally die within hours. It is a concept that many don't take seriously or even consider, but knowing what to do to maintain a safe core temperature when lost in a blizzard or in the desert could save your life. Lundin delivers the message with wit, rebellious humor, and plenty of backcountry expertise.

Watch naturalist Cody Lundin on "Dual Survival" as he uses many of the same skills and techniques taught in his book: 98.6 Degrees: The Art of Keeping Your Ass Alive.

    Entertaining and full of information

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

    Great basics for the average person.

    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.

    Major Disappointment!

    I bought this book after it was recommended highly by a survival forum writer, and I must say I was greatly disappointed. I could find no new information on survival in different environments from what's been published in other books. 98.6 Degrees basically repeats the same message throughout - keep a positive mind and your body temperature near normal - but that point is beaten to death & could have been done in the first chapter. The photos are all grouped in the middle of the book instead of on the relevant page where they could do some good. Finally, the book may turn off some people with its smugness and sketches of buxom females. I'd certainly recommend something else if you're looking for a good survival manual.

    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.

    Wow

    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.
