To "Thrive" implies a level of success that is more comfortable and successful. "Thriving" in the wilderness is a level of living that more easily leads to long-term wilderness living. This book will only keep you alive until rescue, or resupply from society. You will only consider yourself thriving if your basis of comparison is the experience of a lost city-slicker with a knife.
15% of this huge book is just pictures of plants and mushrooms with black-and-white sketches and long written descriptions. Good luck trying to learn from that! Using this source, exclusively, to forage for mushrooms would be dangerous, too, as most species are poisonous, and most edibles have poisonous look-alikes. You may not be thriving, subsisting, OR surviving on this information!
In the end, I was looking for a book that would build my skills beyond a 72-hour survival situation, or camping. This book is not much better than many other survival books out there. I like the book for what it is, but feel that "THRIVING" was an absolute oversell.
I also want to mention that the book is rather large. Much larger than I expected. It is 13 inches by 10 inches and about an inch and a half thick. Compared to your average paperback book (7in x 4in) it is a big book.
I hope your copy is in better shape than mine.
