John 'Lofty' Wiseman is one of my favourite authors and I know his (ex) son-in-law, so I consider this pocket-sized book an excellent purchase. Unfortunately, with the ways things are going in the world, we all may need to benefit from Lofty Wiseman's wisdom and years of experience, in the not-too-distant future!

It's not "Ultimate", but it's close 28 Mar. 2009
By B. Dunn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
In difficult times, we all need to know how to survive on our own because we just never know. This book is pocket sized, so it can litterally go with you everywhere without taking up much space.

This book contains lots of valuable information on how to survive with literally nothing. It discusses how to make shelter, find food, water, and any other necessity of life. If this book has only one short coming is that some of its photo examples of plants and the like are black and white drawings. I would of loved to have seen them as a full color photograph to aid in identification. I'm sure this helps keep the price down, but color photographs would have been nice.

But, don't let that stop you from purchasing this book. Any shortcommings that this book has, you can go on line and do a little more research to find more information. For the price, the information it contains, it is a must for every home.

We are told to prepare for 3 days of emergency supplies. If another disaster happens like what Katrina did to New Orleans, and affects an entire major city, what are you gonna do after your supplies run out after 3 days...you would know if you had this book.

My son loves this 12 Jun. 2013

My son loves this books and the Dangerous Book for Boys - Things to Know that he bought from Amazon as well. He is 12 and this stuff is fun for him. He and his friend go in the backyard and pretend to survive in the wild and use ideas from this book. Keeps them entertained.

Excellent book that is well organized. Subjects are grouped together. The book covers air, land and sea. From foods to eat, techniques for survival to poisonous plants. Medical advice and directions on how to prioritize for your survival. Great resource.

Excellent book! 5 Jun. 2013
By Jesse C. McAbee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Very readable and clear diagrams make this book the best guide for the price. It covers almost every conceivable emergency challenge in the desert, at sea, mountains, arctic, etc. Even volcanoes and emergency child birth. Having a copy of this in your preparedness rucksack will be one of the best investments you can make for the money. I've been through a military survival training and this expands on it covering an amazing number of scenarios and punctures myths like drinking your own urine, etc. The chapter on plants and their uses is very good considering the variety of climates and terrain covered in this guide.
