So there are things I think that so far it's lacking- depth, depth and depth. But that might not be a bad thing- I see to many of these books go into too much detail that for most people doesn't fit. There is also an assumption you have other skills, like first aid training, which you should learn and gets repetitive in a basic book.
What we DO have is good, clear, concise information. I've not yet finished it, but so far I've not seen anything that made me want to wonder what planet the author lives on. That is getting harder to find these days. So far, everything is solid, and I applaud a man known as a desert survival and bushcraft instructor (and the two are NOT the same thing) for keeping it restricted to just bugging out of a disaster area, not how to live forever by braiding grass into rope and eatting bugs.
What I didn't like... The hardcover price. If it was a bit thicker, a bit meatier, and broke 100 pages. $13 for a 64 page book, that's about twenty cents a page. And it is a booklet, not a book. But for the Kindle price, it's a steal. I would recommend it, at a dollar, for any prepper's elibrary. The hardcopy is something I'd buy, put in my library, and loan it out to be people because it isn't so big that it intimidates.
