In difficult times, we all need to know how to survive on our own because we just never know. This book is pocket sized, so it can litterally go with you everywhere without taking up much space.

This book contains lots of valuable information on how to survive with literally nothing. It discusses how to make shelter, find food, water, and any other necessity of life. If this book has only one short coming is that some of its photo examples of plants and the like are black and white drawings. I would of loved to have seen them as a full color photograph to aid in identification. I'm sure this helps keep the price down, but color photographs would have been nice.

But, don't let that stop you from purchasing this book. Any shortcommings that this book has, you can go on line and do a little more research to find more information. For the price, the information it contains, it is a must for every home.

We are told to prepare for 3 days of emergency supplies. If another disaster happens like what Katrina did to New Orleans, and affects an entire major city, what are you gonna do after your supplies run out after 3 days...you would know if you had this book.

My son loves this books and the Dangerous Book for Boys - Things to Know that he bought from Amazon as well. He is 12 and this stuff is fun for him. He and his friend go in the backyard and pretend to survive in the wild and use ideas from this book. Keeps them entertained.

Excellent book that is well organized. Subjects are grouped together. The book covers air, land and sea. From foods to eat, techniques for survival to poisonous plants. Medical advice and directions on how to prioritize for your survival. Great resource.

Many diagrams and step-by-step instructions for what to do in different situations. This book is probably more useful for the more adventurous type folks, frequent outdoor campers and hikers. About 1/10 of the information in the book can be used for everyday emergencies, like how to carry someone safely over your shoulder. The rest of the book covers things like how to make a raft, making ropes for capturing small animals, and making arrows are fun to read but only useful if you purposely put yourself in that kind of environment. Basically this book targets the die-hards of jungle exploration, mountain climbing, and cross-country camping. Might be useful if you have this book on the plane when it crashes, that's assuming that you're close to land and able to swim to it, because most pilots will do their best to land in water.

This is jammed-packed with great information. It is very compact and light-weight. I am un-knowledgeable and inexperienced about wilderness survival. This book covers a number of topics and is written simply in a way that I understand. While experience is the best teacher, I feel that I will options I would not otherwise have had. It is packed in my camping gear.

Though Survivalist is in the title, you need this light-weight soft jacket version for ANY travel. It covers just about any situation in the world in which you are lacking the necessary items to survive, water food, or shelter. I plan on getting a few more copies to put in all my vehicles and the library at home.

Purchased as gifts. Everyone should know a bit about survival on your own......whether it be an emergency or a planned trip. Some interesting information.....not quite what I was looking for though but it will work.
