5.0 out of 5 stars Cool App 2 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase
I too bought the book a couple or three years ago now and found it very informative, and very useful, especially that one time I got stranded on an island in the middle of the Pacific following a freak hurricane, inhabited only by cannibals, I used every trick in the book to survive and it worked. Then there was the time of a viral escaping from a secret government lab, you know the one, Bognor Regis, disguised as a well known holiday camp.. where every camper was turned into the walking dead (to be fair it was kind of hard to know the difference between before and after). Anyway, I digress... again Lofty's Little SAS book came to my rescue... not from its words of wisdom, although everything had learned from it aided my survival, no, rather it was the once wen was cornered by two of the living dead.. just one shot left in my old faithful 1911 Colt, both zombies are closing fast, snarling and gnashing their teeth at me, with only one course of action open, I shot one in the head, right between the eyes, it dropped like a stone, while at the same time shoving my SAS survival guide into the other ghouls mouth, pushing it as far down its rotting throat as far as it would go, 2 fingers in the eyes and it was disabled enough to make my escape, I literally owe my life to my SAS survival guide!

Being as my printed version will be wandering around, stuck down the gullet of the afore mentioned monster for the rest of time, I had to guy the App version to assure my continued survival.

You never know, it may well one day save your life too!

I bought the paperback of this book years ago when it first came out and liked it very much. The online version is handy for me to refer to.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great information, but ... 2 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase
First of all, as anyone who has owned Lofty Wiseman's book in any form will be aware, his SAS Survival Guide is amazing, accessible and full of superb information that really would save your life when you needed it. I cannot praise it highly enough.

This is, however, reviewing the app format of this information. Sadly, I've been disappointed. While it's great to be able to search for the various parcels of info you might need, the thing which I expected to be most brilliant about this digital version was the ability to access video content of Wiseman demonstrating his methods. Try as I might I unfortunately cannot get this feature to work. As instructed by Amazon, I contacted the app developer, but have received no response at all.

It's a real shame as I had great hopes for this. As it is, I'll be sticking to my Collins Gem edition, unless Trellisys.net do something about the problem soon. Poor service so far. Very poor.

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended 26 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase
I would have given this app 5 stars had it not been for the poor quality photo and video library's. The videos seem very last minute and low quality. I use a kindle fire hd and I find the images in the image gallery too small and grainy . But, other than my little gripe on the image and video library, the rest of the app is excellent and well worth the investment. I also have the paperback version of this book and they go very well together. Highly recommended :)
