I have a lot of practice living off the land, honing my survival skills, and so forth. This book amazed me with the number of different ways to start fires. I thought I knew a lot of different ways, and was intrigued when the book said it would teach 50 different ways. I was doubtful, but I tried a few that I had never heard of and they definitely work. This book will improve your fire skills and enhance your survival skills. A definite good book to keep in your library.

I puchased Fire Skills - 50 Methods for Starting Fires Without Matches, by David Adams to check the value of one learning More ways to start a fire, than Carter has Pills. If you need to start a fire in adverse conditions, out in the boonies or on the side of a back road on a motorcycle trip, this book is for you. Ahead of the need for a fire you can collect some materials that will make it easy to start a fire when you do have matches, because matches do not guarintee you a blazing fire. To this I will attest from years living in the high altitudes of Wyoming, where it is relatively dry compared to most other places, just usually cold when you are out in the wilds. As dusk approaches and you feel the chill of the coming night you will thank your lucky stars you have read this book and retain some memory of the skill provided for this necessary camping skill. I recommend this book and if you ever need it's information, you will also.

I had no idea that you could start a fire without matches in so many ways!
My husband is very outdoorsy so I knew he would get really in to this, and boy was I right. And what's nice is that it is accessible reading, you don't have to be an outdoor expert to follow the methods.
Our little boy is a cub scout; I plan on telling all of the pack and den leaders about this, and hopefully trying out more of these methods on our next scout camp out. Fun and different!

Dave Aman's book is intriguing in its diverse ways for starting fires without matches! Having spent years in scouting with Dave, I know 1st hand how much thought & research went into detailing the "how to" for the novice fire starter. He emphasizes safety along with discovery of working through which method works best for each outdoor lover. A "must have" for anyone who likes to hang around the campfire!

I personally have previous knowledge of 3/4 of this books contents. I have tried and often use these methods regularly. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in expanding their fire making knowledge. I even learned a few things. I am a fire starting vetern! Great book for anyone! Worth the money! I urge you to practice and become proficient in these methods. Knowledge alone will bring failure. You must practice. Also you must learn how,to build a fire. This book only covers starting a fire not sustaining one. Learn to build a fire lay, learn tinder, kindling and fuel!

David Aman has created an interesting and easily read book on various ways to start a fire without matches. The directions are in most cases clear and easily followable. The detail on the fire drill is amazing and to my experience accurate. My only complaint with the book is that several of the methods overlap. There are several different methods using a lens varying from Christmas tree ornaments, to ballons, to flashlight to car lights. There are several versions of the bow drill, the bow and three or four styles of hand on stick. There are several battery versions, car, 9 volt and D cell. These are not really different means of fire starting and should be combined.

Some of the methods David admits are very difficult, such as breaking the flashlight bulb and using the spark from the filament. Some of the methods are outright dangerous. These include lighting your tinder under the car hood and the mouth or forehead drill methods. I would have liked to see more information on inclement conditions, but that will probably be in the future book David mentions several times.

The tips on fire building are very basic and very necessary, and not widely known outside woodsman circles.
The detail on the drill alone is worth the $0.99. Overall a good book for the pyrophilic.

Covers the topic very directly, simply and comprehensively.
Will not set the world on fire but will spark your own thinking.

I don't think I'd have the patience or endurance to try many of these techniques, so lets hope I'm well prepared for all my future remote hike/ camp expeditions. I think I much prefer the lighter and steel fire starters with a flare for backup during very wet conditions. I like to keep wads of tinder material in ziplock bags, so finding dry material isn't usually a problem. Some of the techniques described I would have never thought of. I guess a crisis IS the mother of invention. What people can't come up with in a pinch! Anyway, well written and to the point with a little humor thrown in. My favorite type of educational reading.
