Of the four survival handbooks I own this has to be the most useful and enjoyable. This is because of the fantastic layout and full colour diagrams and photographs. With full information on how everything is done with step through guides and diagrams makes it easy to understand. I strongly recommend this book to hikers, travellers or anyone who is interested in the subject.

This book is very good in that it shows exactly how to survive in the wild with illustrations, not just words. In fact, the book is full of illustrations covering everything from lashing to building shelters to catching fish--and more, showing exactly how it's done with illustrations and photographs along the way.

This book is magnificent. The author's credentials, always the most important factor, are excellent.The book is loaded with fascinating and indispensable survival techniques. It should be in the library of both beginning and advanced outdoorsmen.

An excellent introduction to the world of the outdoors
for all those who have been longing to get back to nature.
The superb use of illustrations clearly depict outdoor life. From basic gear to the process of cooking a fish,
McManners captures the essence camping in a simple how-to
style. Perhaps the only flaw is the book's lack of a
section regarding backpacks. Otherwise, a must have for
those who are seeking info and advice concerning the
outdoors.

Not as serious or extensive as I'd hoped, but rather covering the same ground as many others in a rather abbreviated fashion. Not hardcore, although attractively laid out.

This book was a great souce of information including great illistrations on all sorts of important matters ranging from emergency first aid to what to wear and pack. I was humored but greatfull for the section on how to find, and eat insects in a survival situation. Besides being a good book for the camping family, it could be very resourcefull in the event that Y2K problems such as power and water loss occur.
