Whether or not you own a bible, when someone refers to a book as a bible of trapping, or a bible of cooking for that matter, you might assume that this book is of great significance and perhaps as thick as a bible, which tipically have hundreds of pages. This book is 63 pages, including the introduction, and the "afterword." The book literally discusses one type of snare, with 30 different variations to that particular approach to snaring. The information in this book that is of value is minimal, and can be found in any half-descent survival guide, such as the (SAS Survival Book.) Might I also add that the last third of this book is about booby traps used by the Viet Cong reminiscent of, but not on par with, Full Metal Jacket. Not to mention the pages dedicated to trip wire alarms. Not one "trap,"(conibear, or what have you,) is referred to in this entire book! I fail to see how this book is helpful unless perhaps you live in Africa, India or South America, in hostile backwoods areas and only have electrical wire at your disposal. In any case I feel this book is literally a waste of trees, and money!
