Overview

John “Lofty” Wiseman is the author of the bestselling SAS Survival Handbook , the definitive guide to survival in the wild from Britain’s Special Air Service. Now he has compiled the complete guide to surviving among crowds of people, the mazes of office buildings, the dangers of an unfeeling city—put simply, how to stay safe in the urban jungle.

Thousands of preventable fatalities occur in the home every year—more than on the roads, more than in the great outdoors. Household chemicals, electricity, cooking knives, and rodent poisons—in the wrong hands and with improper usage, these day-to-day resources bring danger to your home. Add to this the risks of moving through city streets (the threat of rape, muggings, and gang violence) and the menace of natural disasters (floods, earthquakes, blizzards) that cannot be avoided.

Every day serves as a constant reminder: The world is truly a frightening place.

The SAS Urban Survival Guide advises readers to think practically about urban environments and offers tips and instructions on how to avoid hazards wherever one goes. From self-defense techniques to home security systems to coping with natural disasters, this book teaches readers to recognize danger, make quick decisions, and live confidently in the modern world.

In all fairness, this book would probably receive a higher rating if I were a resident of the UK. However, I'm not. Many of the tips, rules, etc. that Mr. Wiseman discusses are either unique to Britain or at least have nuances that make them MOSTLY unique to Britain. I do realize that the SAS is a British organization, I was simply hoping for a more generalized approach when I bought the book. There is still plenty of good information though. I'm going to venture to say that some of his warnings and tips near the point of paranoia, but I think he was merely trying to cover all the angles. A good resource book, but if you're looking for a comprehensive guide on how to handle the worst situations a city can throw at you, then you had better stick with the Worst Case Scenario series of books. Just my two cents.

As the other reviewer said, this book is a glorified safety book on very mundane things. It's ridiculous. All this book is good for is making you feel foolish for buying it.

Hate to say it, but this book is a total DUD. Has nothing whasoever to do with what to do during / after any type of emergency situation. To me it's more like a home-repair guide! Don't bother....
