"Most of us need never fashion a gas mask from a soup can.... Should the need arise, you'll be glad for a copy of Survival Hacks. Survival trainer Creek Stewart, who hosted Fat Guys in the Woods for The Weather Channel, offers tips ranging from making a cookstove from a packet of alcohol-soaked ramen to cutting a fishing lure from the shiny bits of your Visa card." --The Seattle Times
"Creek Stewart's new book Survival Hacks is full of fun tricks ... giving children fun, useful puzzles to occupy their minds during camping trips. The book's focus on common, everyday objects makes each 'hack' affordable, and the challenge of properly constructing, then using those hacks should provide hours of fun, while teaching kids to be resourceful." --Outside Magazine Online
"A fantastic new book that combines two topics that are presently very popular, survival prepping & life hacking. He brings a wealth of experience to the table, and has helped thousands of people improve their survival skills." --The Backwoodsman

There are many topic related drawings, I would prefer photographs, but the cost of the book would have been doubled or tripled. There are 9 full page photos showing examples of 7 EDC, (Every Day Carry), kits that are very helpful. The kit contents are listed with the reasons they are important.
If you are new to the world of prepping/survival, or have been studying the topic for years, this book is a must have for your reference books.
Thanks for reading this far. This is my first review of anything ever and I hope you find it helpful.
A lot of the “hacks” in this book require prior planning and tools which most people do not carry into the wilderness. While this book does have a lot of interesting “hacks” which can be utilized in an urban or suburban environment with the proper tools, this is not meant for wilderness survival. If the author wishes to promote wilderness survival, then my suggestion would be for him to really re-evaluate every hack in this book and make sure it is something that can actually be used in the wilderness.
In all honesty, I cannot recommend this book for wilderness survival as quite a few “hacks” in this book are very impractical for that genre. For those of you who do not agree, this is only my opinion and nothing more. Thank you for reading and good luck.
I highly recommend this book, especially with summer time and our kids being out of school approaching. You don't need to be into "survival" to enjoy this book. If you love working with your hands and feeling a sense if fun and accomplishment, then this book is for you as well.
If you are into the outdoors, this also shows fun stuff to do with the inevitable human detritus that we come across while enjoying nature.
