Editorial Reviews

About the Author

David Morris, AKA SurvivalDave, is one of the few survival authors who won't try to "wow" you with his credentials.

Why? Because frankly, his credentials don't matter. Survival "experts" are a dime a dozen, but what's rare and valuable is David's ability to take complex survival topics and write about them in such a way that you can actually start applying the knowledge and skills immediately on a daily basis.

David doesn't live in a yurt or on a fully stocked rural retreat. He lives in the real world in a city with a wife and young kids. As a result, he has worked with dozens of subject matter experts to develop strategies to survive breakdowns in civil order while remaining in the city.

David is one of a select group of authors can write so that both newbie preppers and hard core survivalists with military and law enforcement experience rave about his work and learn something new on every page.

The Good:
-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.

The Bad:
-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.

This book could have been way better, and David Morris has read the good books which i'll point you to in minute, which makes me wonder why this book sucks so hard.

I was really doubting this book when i ran across it, and after reading the negative reviews even more so, but i gave it a chance and got skunked for the most part. I have no doubt that he's LDS, which isnt a bad thing, i like most Mormons.... even more so if they are Conservative and into survival. I honestly believe someone tamed this book down, it could have been way better. Dave has military friends like most of us do, he spends his money on formal tactical training such as firearms and survival classes avaliable to the public. Why it ended up being a PG book when it should have been something liberals are trying to pull from the shelves and something Paladin Press wished they sold and printed off.

If you really have no clue on what life during collapse will be like, this book will be gold to you. If you already own alot of other books on the subject of survival like myself your gonna be quite upset. My thoughts, this book was made as a survival book to be placed in the hands of anyone in the church. Urban LDS Survival Manuel?

Morris admits to having read Ragnar Benson's books. Those books are awesome! He writes really good books and pulls no punches. Liberals hate the kinds of books he wrote. Every Ragnar Benson book is a great buy and money well spent.

This book is like having a conversation with "That guy" we all try to avoid but seem to bump into anyways at the Range, Gun show, surplus store etc. You know the ones im talking about, The "armchair Tactical" types that still live with there parents and believe movies are credible sources of information!
The majority of the introduction is just a huge advertisement. The author try's to get you to sign up for his classes, refers his friends and the services they offer etc. There is no real flow to the layout, and the author has a hard time sticking to the given subject bouncing back and forth or taking off on a rant and then not getting back to the substance of the given topic before ending the chapter, Many times the author ends the chapter with a reference to a web page to learn more about the topic. Half of the book is *do not try this* posted after he has a "to do" list, or pointing out a product and all the good things about it and then stating that he nor his family will ever use it and give little to no reason why. The author also lists Twitter and Facebook as alternate forms of communication(WTF?!?). I put the book down when the author stated that if someone is following you should "put in different color contact lenses, or shave your beard, or install hair extensions, etc. to throw off your follower. REALLY?!?!
I did give it 1 star because when you cut out all the clutter and BS there is an OK amount of useful things the beginner or intermediate prepper will find useful, and you have to put at least 1 star any ways.......
A better book on the subject that most individuals support that have written reviews here on Amazon is Ragner Benson's "Ragner's urban survival" This is a much more informative book for anyone wanting to learn more about SERIOUSLY prepping in and urban environment. But I Wish I didn't waste my money on this book......
