This book is very easy to read, and- retain. The style is simple so it makes it easy to remember. Written for the novice and inexperienced, it makes sense of why things should be done as well as how. For the expert, there are lots of tips and considerations that are omitted in most other books on the topic. As enjoyable as it is informative- a great read for anyone, at any age.

Mykel's book is an awesome tool for anyone who enjoys anything from a simple day hike to a week or longer excursion.

Wonderful, usable, accurate way for anyone to live long enough and loud enough to be rescued. Would love to see CPT Husband & CSM Wifey do another show together, but instead of being rescued as the goal, being able to survive off the grid in close proximty to the grid without being detected. Should come much more naturally to someone of Hawke's pedigree. There is a market for this. At any rate, fantastic survival guide. I hope Myke intends to continue to teach the wayward indigenes of this technological world how to stay alive when the lights go out. Thanks for your efforts and for continuing to entertain the masses. FYI CSM has come along way... Best, Former GB Bro from the beautiful AOR of the 1/10th

Mykel does a superb job at informing his audience, through easy to remember sayings and acronyms. As elementary as the lessons are each and every lesson is based on actual military standards. No fancy names for chapters, just the basics. Very self explanatory, his medical advice is second to none. Based solely on that, this is a must read.

Mike Hawke sure put together an amazing survival guide. Clearly he knows his subject matter to a depth that few others I have read can convey. Easy to read with practical information for novices to advanced survivalists, this is a "MUST HAVE" addition to any collection.
