Editorial Reviews

Washington Post
“This step-by-step survival bible has... prepared [me] for anything. ... This edition’s most valuable lessons arrive in its new ‘Urban Survival’ section, which features tactics for countering espionage and dealing with urban animal attacks.”
Outside magazine
“A classic outdoor manual. ... Written by John Wiseman, former survival instructor for Britain’s elite Special Air Service (an all-conditions strike force considered by some to be tougher than the U.S. Navy SEALs), the book addresses every conceivable disaster scenario. ... Don’t leave home without it.”
