First off. I am a big fan of Bear Grylls. I watch his show regularly, and I have read about his climb to the top of Everest. With that said, this book left me a little disappointed. It does have a lot of information in it and glossy pictures but it lacks the nitty gritty info of other survival manuals. For instance; I did not find a list of basic items that should be carried in the bush. Also, the fire making section doesn't really touch on how to use the flint and steel used by Bear in his show. I guess if you are a fan of the show Man vs Wild then this is a good accompaniment. But, if you are looking for a good survival skills book this isn't it.

I'm a big fan of Bear Grylls and the Man Vs. Wild series. That said, this is an interesting read, nice pictures, but it's not much more than a picture album for the Man Vs. Wild series. It makes a very interesting coffee table book. But if you're looking for a true survival manual, look elsewhere (The SAS Survival Handbook is excellent). "The Kid Who Climbed Everest: The Incredible Story of a 23-Year-Old's Summit of Mt. Everest" is also a book by Bear Grylls and is very good.

I haven't completely finished reading the book, but I must say that it is very useful and full of wonderful information, provided in an entertaining way. Mr. Grylls enthusiasm in sharing his knowledge is apparent and holds your attention and also helps you to remember his tips (such as figuring out your prioritites in a survial situation - Protection, Rescue, Water, Food, summarized in a helpful mnemonic: Please Remember What's First!). I would definitely recommend this book to anyone with an interest in survival techiniques or who just loves the show Man vs. Wild and Bear Grylls!

great book but not really what I expected , it's not a field manual . if your looking for a book you can read and stow in a rucksack this is not it . it's more of a reference book you read at home and leave in your book shelf . it's really informative you can learn a lot from it especially when combined with the TV series . like I said if your looking for a book you can take out in the bush with you this not that book , but all in all a great addition to any survival library .

You learn a lot from this book, the information is very useful. All you need is this book before you start to collect outdoors survival gear. Practice what you learn and you will be Bear Grylls junior in no time.
