Top Customer Reviews
I liked the book for several reasons: 1). The 34 survival scenarios covered the gamet of potential dangers for virtually any contingency one might imagine.
2). Courtley's advice is practical and resonates with good common sense.
3). His insights derive from a decade of his work in the SEAL Teams and include interesting first-hand anecdotes.
4). The book reminded me of many good lessons I learned during my ten years in the military and had almost forgotten.
The book contains the following four sections on the topic of Survival:
1). Mental and Physical
2). 34 Specific Survival Scenarios
3). Gear and Weapons
4). Medical Treatment
I have already recommended this book to many of my friends and purchased the book for my sons-in-law (neither of whom has a military background). I feel Courtley's primary contribution in this writing is in the following three areas: 1). It helps people develop situational awareness. 2). It explains the importance of acquiring a survival mentality. 3). It introduces a method for making good survival decisions quickly under stress.
If you are breathing, you need this book. Get it now!
And this is coming from a 20+yr survival instructor. That gets paid to teach survival and firearms classes.
Also, former military. Army Recon team. Naval Special Boat Unit. And a 8yr veteran of Private Security.
Bottom Line: GET THIS BOOK NOW!!!
When my sons got the book, they asked when I was going to disarm a hand grenade or be involved in a high-speed chase. (You never know what grandma might do...) These are some of the more dramatic incidents that the author addresses, but the author does address more mundane issues like getting stuck in the desert, falling through the ice & auto accidents.
One of the best parts of the book are the side bars. One is "Never Hesitate to Ask Questions That Could Save Your Life"--It's a paragraph long, but the salient point is--"Don't let the fear of what others think of you become an impediment to survival." Hmmmm....think 9-11 when people stayed in the buildings because they were told to.
The info in this book is so current that the author addresses the Costa Concordia cruise ship disaster and mall shootings.
The Table of contents is in alphabetical order by incident, and therefore serves as a quick & easy index! If I'm involved in the middle of a biochemical attack, I want to be able to quickly look up some practical tips. Of course, I'll be carrying my Seal Survival Guide with me! Grandma's got you covered.
Buy it. Put it in the bathroom. Learn it. Live.
