2.0 out of 5 stars not well formatted for kindle January 26, 2011
By Mike
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a decent edition of the SH 21-76 for anybody needing to keep up on their small unit operations skills. All the information of the regular handbook is in there but it is not well formatted for the kindle. You can not jump ahead to sections from the table of contents or jump chapters from my five way control key. The illustrations are clear but have lines through them breaking them up as if they were scanned in with a small scanner. Still a good handbook to have for $1.99. If the publisher fixes these problems I will come back and give it 5 stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wont buy another kindle version from this publisher. November 16, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Most civilians should skip this book. If you are looking for survival info there are too many better options. Formatting is horrible. I bought solely based on price and regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Same one I had back when September 12, 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wanna be an airborne ranger I wanna live a life of danger. AIRBORNE RANGER LIFE OF DANGER. Did everyone have to run five miles around there barracks each morning signing this garbage carrying a full 80 pound back pack. I know I did for 8 weeks. I know I did Then I got to go in a big metal bird and land in a strange county. Where people ran around with guns trying to kill me and use booby traps to maim and injure me. Sounds like loads of fun to me right?????

5.0 out of 5 stars I am not a survalist. July 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What I am is a 68 year old g'ma with two ten year old grandsons who want to go camping. So we are reading the book; so far we have practiced knife handling, laying out a fire and starting a fire. (I had them work with a magnifying glass as we live in AZ.) And they wanted to do it "the old fashion way with a rock and steel" so I guess a trip to a camping store is in my future as I see sandstone in the garden rather than flint. How to assemble a lean-to, knotting to splice a walking stick, if lost hunkering down rather than wandering around and starting a fire in a safe place, knotting string to make a bag or a carry all, and so on. Yes we will be going out with experienced friends but I wanted to do some prep work rather like teaching swimming in a pool before you go to a lake.
