Many paladin press books have catchy titles and covers but most of their books are not worth the money. this one is no different.
I assumed this book focuses more on making and improvising tools and gear rather than just being a thrifty shopper. sure he has some pictures of a few crude homemade items but anyone with any sort of skills and basic tools could come up with things just as good or better.
I have bought many items over the years for camping and wilderness survival, but bought this from the perspective that, in an emergency situation when you may not have all your gear accessible, this could provide ideas for improvising from what is at hand. I'm pleased to say that this book is a valuable resource for this, as well as extremely useful for folks who just can't afford to shell out a lot from REI or wherever. Buy it!
