This book is for sure "adapt and overcome" as I see it.
Very good, and I mean very good chapter on first aid and medicine you could need etc.
I also have a old (very old..) version of the SAS survival manual, but I like this one from Mykel!
I like it and recommend it for sure.
Why only 4 star -I rarely give higher! If it is a 5 star book it should be the best you ever read! That's why I don't like when people give a 5 star to "everything" they read -it can't for sure not be true!
I must also mention he has great info on starting methods that are easy to remember and very practical. I thought I knew all the ways to start a fire but he has some new ones and yet the philosophy he has is so simple that it is easy to remember and apply.
This book really does cover about everything and has details and explanations you wont find elsewhere and in a way that is easy to understand and easy to read. I seriously read this huge book in a week. So much easier than others in the same genre.
I highly recommend this book, it will give you great information and will be resource easy to go back into and find specifics as you may need.
If I needed one survival book ( and I have many) this book is where I would start. Its a killer investment and a great value.
The first step is to stay positive. Because you need that energy to think and survive. Not wallow in the problem. This is the first book on survival that is actually entertaining, witty, and to the point that I have read. My son can't wait to get home and read it.

This book resembles Hawke's outdoor survival handbook. The same pictures, the same layout and even the same type of paper.
Overall a good handbook but it doesn't stand above other survival handbooks.
It's not a thin book, and it is packed with a LOT of content. That being said, it's a no BS book meant to help you stay alive through the absolute worst situations you could possibly find yourself in; doing whatever it takes to get you out alive. That means dealing with topics that are NOT for the faint of heart, because Mykel doesn't sugar-coat the difficulties and challenges that you might be facing.
Having spent years studying the 'survival' topic; more often than not, an entire book ends up being nothing but 'review' of things I already know. This was not the case with this book; I took a lot of new material from this book. Specifically, the 'medicine' section covers topics/methods that I have never seen before in hundreds of other books of the same type.
He delivers the entire book in a form that is very 'human', and it doesn't feel like a textbook other than the few places where there's really no alternative to sharing some 'dry content'. You'll find plenty of humour sprinkled in, in a successful attempt to make some of the 'darker' subjects a little easier to digest.
