On the most fundamental level, survival is about keeping the body from going into shock and using the mind to do what is necessary to survive the "actualities" (fatigue, hunger, exposure to weather as well as to insects and parasites, and so on). It is about using every means at one's disposal to recover from the situation.
This book is applicable to disaster planning because it is our primary literary source for dealing with immediate and extreme stress. Preparation is not only providing for water, food, physical protection, medicine, barter items, tools and materials. If disaster comes suddenly, there will be terrific mental stress compounded by actualities. The challenge of keeping mind and body going would keep us quite busy. This, among other things, is addressed in the Handbook.
For an example of what I'm talking about, please look at pages 24, 26, 35, and 37. Lines stretch across the page and bleed into the words. BN publishing should be ashamed.
For the little money you spend for this handbook, you'll realize it's a steal. You may never have to worry about crash landing in a foreign country, or navigating through a jungle. Heaven forbid anyone should. It's the "what if" question that lingers for many people, that should compell you to take a look, and read for yourself. No knowledge, is useless knowledge.

This book is the best I have come across and the only one I felt could be a stand alone true survival book. Granted I may never be in a desert, ocean, or arctic situation being tracked by enemies or surviving a radioactive blast... but it is good to have the info just in case.
Think of it of a Boyscout manual on super steroids times 10. The processes are simplified and illustrated to help identify and understand the language involved with the tasks. In addition the knowledge shared takes into consideration you might not be prepared with any supplies. This book shows you how to create Ropes, Compass, tools, and Back packs and other necessary survival equipment. It seems as though if there is any degree of difficulty or confusion a diagram is included. This is very important I feel when identifying or preparing food and water sources, building shelters, navigating, and medical care... all things truly necessary for survival. The evasion and techniques are great if Anarchy does ever break out... however I do not feel evasion during zombie takeover is that complicated since they are pretty dumb from what I have seen in movies.
