This book is very informative and descriptive of surviving in the wilderness. I have learned some new tactics and ways to do things. Overall it is worth buying.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

You are stranded in the woods, alone and scared. Bradford Angier¿s "How to Stay Alive in the Woods: A Complete Guide to Food, Shelter and Self-Preservation Anywhere" very well may save your life. Throughout the book, Angier gives important information which is also quite interesting. He covers main topics which are the focal point if each chapter. Most ideas and tactics are generally understandable, although the illustrations are downright ridiculous at times. The moments that leave you thinking ¿that was a brilliant idea¿ are often interrupted with common sense tips that make you wonder what age group the book is intended for. Detailed explanations of practical knowledge draw attention from several parts of the book, which results in numerous low points. In conclusion, this book makes for a decent read, but lacks the qualities which would make it a book that you would like to own.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The information isn't bad, but the style of writing makes the book very hard to follow. Also it doesn't go into detail about any of the physical parts of survival, just skims over them quickly. There is a big emphasis placed on mental attitude.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
