4.0 out of 5 stars Good if you have some background August 23, 2011
Verified Purchase
Good field manual for someone with military training or a veteran. There are a lot of assumed knowledge as this is a more advanced course not for a beginner. If you have a background for it then it is a good book for you. Anyone else needs to either enlist or study up before this book as you will more than likely not understand some of the topics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazon can do better August 2, 2011
It is as if they just poorly photo copied the real book and put it into kindle form, It's one of the main things they will have to fix. I would say buy the real book and wait for the kindle people to catch up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Informative October 10, 2011

This book will definitely help out if I ever get lost in the woods. The price is nice, and I could not complain about all of the information I have learned from this book. Will be reading a second time to highlight the most important tips.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good overall March 30, 2013
Verified Purchase
I enjoy learning critical skills that this book offers. The parts with radiation exposure and successful survival of those factors make it apparent that this book covers even the nitty gritty you won't find in your everyday Ranger Manual. These skills will help you to survive to fight another day.

Certain portions though, need to be addressed. The medical portion, covering the ABC's, is outdated. More recent pubs address better ways of blood loss, airway, and circulation. Also, the book is simplistic to a fault. Certain portions could use a more detailed analysis.

Aside from those, I thought the book was great! I will be using this book for years to come.
