This outrageously straightforward survival book teaches you what you need to know, now, to live through virtually every survival scenario.
From the Inside Flap
A destined underground classic, 98.6: The Art of Keeping Your Ass Alive is a nonstop thrill ride, jam-packed with commonsense modern survival skills for the backcountry, the backyard, or the highway. Author Cody Lundin, founder and director of the nationally recognized Aboriginal Living Skills School, shares his own brand of wilderness wisdom based on the unique principle of keeping the body's core temperature at a lively 98.6 degrees.
In his no-nonsense and informative style-paired with outrageously hip visuals-Cody stresses that a human can live without food for weeks, and without water for several days. But if the body's core temperature dips much below or above the 98.6-degree mark, a person can literally die within hours. It is a concept that many don't take seriously or even consider, but knowing what to do to maintain a safe core temperature when visiting the great outdoors could save your life.
Delivered with wit, rebellious humor, and plenty of backcountry expertise, 98.6: The Art of Keeping Your Ass Alive is destined to not only entertain but to empower the reader with practical advice, information, and detailed instructions of how to create an effective modern-day survival kit using simple, easy-to-find items.

it describes not only techniques and tools and kit but also about the state of mind you need to be in to survive and survivie with your family, friends etc.
its not an sas survival book but a very down to earth, advice and guidance book with a lot of humour.
a refreshing read after other survival books!
This book however is a very good book from someone who clearly knows what he is talking about. It would seem that he also agrees with my view on the ready-to-buy survival kits/packs as he shows you how you can create your own survival kits/packs with mostly every day items that many people would already have in their homes such as condoms. This is a very digestable book with easy to follow tips and survival skills that the average person can put into practice. The layout of the pages and information is in a very easy to follow format and the diagrams and illustrations help you to take in the information without being overloaded which would make learning the essential information harder. A simple yet very clever book. The moral of this book would be to be prepared because you never know when something will go wrong and you will need to make those spilt second decisions that will save your life.
I was worried that the book as written by an American might not translate well to a universal auidence outside of the USA. There are a few minor points in this book that I think are US centric and would be difficult to apply here in the UK but overall it translates well. For the information to be fully effective you need to use the skills contained in the book and train which could be difficult if you work, have a family, children etc but worth doing if one day it may save your life.Read more ›
OK, since it's Cody's book I gotta admit it's really hard to read this book and some of the tips he's giving while you keep seeing this barefoot guy in Dual Survival walking in deep snow in socks only,
It's a great book, buy it and enjoy
