The list author says: "With so many survival books out there for so many scenarios, how do you know which one to choose? Which ones will actually be useful and practical for your situation? Here's what I've found..."
"This one is more of a "preparedness" book. This one tells you how to handle it when civilization collapses and what you can do to be ready. Very detailed with exactly which products to buy now and how to stock up on them."
"If you're only going to buy one book for most survival situations, this one will probably do it. While the Army manual covers all outdoor scenarios, this one does the same while going into detail about how much weight to carry and even which sleeping bags and tents to buy. Very helpful!"
"A very big book (making it impractical to carry around) but full of information about what to do to get ready for the collapse of civilization. Not handy as an outdoor guide, but still a survival manual."
