-The author puts in a lot of good info pertaining to the subject, and uses examples of survival situations as recent as Hurricane Katrina. Even the most experienced person will still learn something here.
-Easy to read; no degree needed.
-At the end of each chapter the author recaps the important points and gives the reader suggestions for homework to help make the lesson more memorable.
-Spelling and grammar errors. I caught approximately ten spelling and/ or grammatical errors without even looking for them. Not overly distracting, just mildly annoying. I'd expect better given the price of this book.
-The author repeatedly references his website for more information, and constantly promotes his Urban Survival Program (not free). There are a few points where he leaves you hanging lest you check out his website. Again, annoying.
-Information, even within a chapter, tends to bounce around a bit, and could go a lot more into detail.
If you are new to the "Urban Survival" topic, then this book will be great, however, if you've read any other survival books, or watched Youtube survival videos then you may only take away a few new points.
In my opinion, this book wouldn't be worthy of 5 stars even if the problems were resolved. I think the content needs to be a little more in-depth given the nature of the topic. I would've given it 3.5 stars if I could have, instead of 4. Resolve all of the issues and it would be 4.5 solid stars.
That's my 2 cents.
