Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book solely to keep as a reference in my pack for emergencies. For the most part its common sense stuff.The thing i really dont like about it is the humor involved.I cant imagine being in a survival situation and having to read jokes before i am told what to do.Example this is from the book for treating a fracture-TREATMENT So what the heck do you do for you buddy when he breaks his leg?First take a couple of breaths and try not to toss your trail mix,because the sight of a limb bending at an unnatural angle or the sound of snapped bones grating on each other,can be really nauseating END.this is pretty much how everything starts out. For me i would like to get to the point and know what to do as soon as i can and be serious about the situation,its hard to do that with all the jokes involved.I would honestly say this would be a good book for children to learn from not adults. I have several survival books that are larger and take up more space so i will stick with them for now.
