No need for a long review here. This book was written by a professional soldier who was in the SAS, or the Special Air Service. For those not in the know, that's an elite unit of the British Army trained to carry out operations in ALL parts of the world. Eventually, the author became a survival instructor to the SAS, so you can be sure that this guy knows his stuff.

The book covers all you'd ever want to know about the essentials of surviving in climates such as: the polar region, mountains, seashores, islands, tropical regions, or even at sea. Here's few of the many topics the book covers:

-food, what you can and can't eat
-animal tracking with numerous pics
-color pics of edible plants
-pictures of traps and how to trap things
-how to handle animals you've killed for food
-how to make a camp and various shelters
-knot tying pics
-first aid
-color pics of medicinal plants
-picures of dangerous/poisonous critters
-things to have in a survival kit

A very handy resource for anybody who enjoys outdoor/wilderness activities, it's just a darn good thing to have around in case of emergencies- or even just to look at the pictures! Also recommend Treat Your Own Rotator Cuff if you have a shoulder problem that is interfering with your outdoor activities.

If you need it in a survival situation ensure you have a magnifying glass and plenty of light (you will need to read the instructions for your light.......if you can find the magnifying glass first)
Great information, too small print though.

For what I paid it's a bargain at £3.80 including postage! Very good little book, hundreds of pages on first aid and survival. I had this years ago as part of a first aid/survival kit and used it to make a shelter when I had to survive in the woods for 4 days as the survival part of a conservation course I did. Thanks to the instructions in this very compact little book I was able to quickly make a simple but effective shelter. Would recommend this book to anyone and everyone.

This is about the 20th copy of this book that I've bought. I keep giving them to my friends. I also have the app on my iPhone. It is a really great book, and I always have a copy in my backpack along with a compass, signal mirror, whistle, snare wire... etc.

This little pocked sized book was bought as a present for my nephew, so I have just glanced through it. It is full of interesting facts. I was particularly interested in the section on which berries and mushrooms could be eaten! It is small enough to put in a rucksack when camping etc.

Hi, yep definitely a must have book. I've bought Bear Grylls Ch4 Book. Yes it covers alot, though the complaint about this Grylls book is it's hardback, and he talks too much about his family. Though this SAS Survival Guide, has a he'll of alot more in it than Grylls does on actual survival. The books are a wee bit similar in the fire talks and shelters and knot tying. Though I have a book coming on knots tomorrow. Yes my birthday. I would recommend the knot book also, even though i've not got it yet. Same company I think, GEM as it like said 'book fits in Palm of your hand'
The only thing I find of concern is Scotland's knife laws. How do you go camping without taking something to saw and cut. I have one of these credit sized tools that has a screwdriver a bottle opener, can opener, 10cms, and wrenches and some sort of time dial. If the police wish to search me and find this, well doesn't matter if you're a QC you're still getting arrested. No not a AD just a guy that wants to go camping, and needs to know the law. Either that or I take a glass bottle of lemonade, smash it, and use this, and also tear a can into bits. Though I have the spade and pickaxe that you sell with the compass in end of handle. This will be classed as a lethal weapon. Though if I take it, well it goes into bottom of Bergen, and has to be screwed together, by that time the person I'm alleging to attack will have battered me instead. So a not guilty plea will be accepted if I do get caught with this. Different if it's hanging off Bergen fully put together. So anyone clued up on the laws on what you can and cannot take on your trip.
Surely a gas canister exploding on top of your stove as a deliberate act would be seen as worse than having a spade to bury your number 2's.
Anyway. Cracking book. Been reading it since got it this morning.
Sincerely,
Paul Glancy.
