Many books offer some things with a bit of depth to them, but Mr. Nester leaves out the extraneous things that don't work and cuts right to the chase of how and why you should use certain items and techniques.
I try to have my students have the least amount of survival library books as possible with the most amount of information possible in the few that they have. This book is now one of the four books I require them to read.
There are a lot of armchair commandos in the survival field that don't spend much time outdoors. This book is written by a guy who obviously spends the better part of his life learning and practicing his trade.
Excellent book and I highly recommend it for anyone interested in the subject.
Prepper's Instruction Manual: 50 Steps and The Prepper's Pocket Guide: 101 Easy Things and got quickly frustrated. While those books are an easy read, they are light on information. That is, my wife was trying to make a plan for stocking up on food. One of those books had two chapters devoted to the subject, that basically said "keep track of everything you eat for a month and buy that". Now, I'm oversimplifying, but she was frustrated and picked up this book - which gave detailed information on how much people eat and provided suggestions on what to store and how to get started, while also giving the same advice as the other books. In other words, this book keeps it concise and gets right to it and says what needs to be said without any fluff. So, it may look like a little pamphlet - but it packs an encyclopedia of helpful knowledge.
That said, the other books are not bad, and I do use teh tips in those as well - but this book has become the go to book.
