I thought that this book was Great!!! I have to say I was a little disappointed upon reading another review for this book. I think the criticism was entirely unfounded. I found this book to have more than enough very practical and very useful information on how not only to prevent yourself from ever getting into a bad situation but also how to get out of it if you happen to find yourself lost or stranded. I don't think that anyone who thinks differently could have possibly even read the book. The chapter titles include: Shelter and Staying warm, Fire, Water and Food, First Aid, What to do when you are lost, Detectability, Surviving in a Vehicle, Venturing Out; Clothing Footwear, Plans and Packs. What else could you possible need. I think that pretty much covers the basics. As a registered nurse I found all of the information to be very helpful and very acurate from both a personal standpoint and also from a medical standpoint. I especially enjoyed the chapter on First Aid, While most people feel that they have a basic understanding of first aid but this chapter is a great review. It discusses Assessment, Artificial Respiration, CPR (how many of us couldn't use a brush up on that), Bleeding, Imobilization, Hypothermia. Even if you are never going to set foot in the wilderness this chapter is a great First Aid review. After all you don't have to be in the wilderness to get hurt, or come to the aid of someone else who is.
Bottom line this is a great book. The personal stories keep your attention from start to finish, and the information is very practical for anyone. The authors expertise and knowlege is very apparent in each and every chapter of this book. I would highly recommend it for anyone who is a serious outdoorsmen or even just a causal camper.

As an EMT who has considerable experience in Mountain Rescue and dealing with victims of hypothermia, I found this very informative. It is well written in very easy to understand with many excellent and interesting stories. It addresses not only solutions to survival situations but offers many preventative ideas. Well worth the money.
