5 Out of 5 Stars for SAS Survival Handbook...

5 Out of 5 Stars for SAS Survival Handbook-Revised Edition-by John 'Lofty' Wiseman-paperback-March 3, 2009
 Front Cover.

My Review:

Prepare for the worst! Being Forewarned is being forearmed. Always be prepared!
Wow! This book astonished me: from the honesty to its intensity, this is an in-depth look at how to survive any situation in any climate. Though, I don't think I could kill my own game to eat; I'd probably revert to being a vegan, the information from how to trap to how to prep it is in there. And should I need to eat weeds and nuts, there are full color photos on the safe ones to eat and those to avoid, including those dangerous bugs and reptiles to avoid.
He provides you with information on how to put together a survival kit and a survival pouch. With these few items one puts together, one can surive anywhere, anytime.
It is a thick book and I'm still working my way through it, but I highly recommend it for reference. I sincerely hope I nor anyone else never needs to rely on it, but in these days of the increasing frequency and strength of natural and man-made disasters, one never knows.


For Any Climate, in Any Situation.
Newly updated to reflect the latest in survival knowledge and technology, the internationally bestselling SAS Survival Handbook is the definitive resource for all campers, hikers, and outdoor adventurers. From basic campcraft and navigation to fear management and strategies for coping with any type of disaster, this complete course includes:
Being prepared: Understanding basic survival needs and preparing essentials, such as a pocket survival kit.
Making camp: Finding the best location, constructing the appropriate shelter, organizing camp, and creating tools.
Food: What to eat, what to avoid, where to find it, and how to prepare it.
First aid: A comprehensive course in emergency/wilderness medicine, including how to maximize survival in any climate or when injured.
Disaster survival: How to react in the face of increasingly frequent natural disasters and hostile situations—and how to survive at home if all services and supplies are cut off.
