    1. What have I gotten myself into this time?!I found this book linked in one of BookRiot's articles about books that can help you to survive the apocalypse (Did you know that there actually is a "Post-Apocalyptic Survival Month"? It's September!) and since I'm a fan of post-apocalyptic stuff, I hoped it would be as good as Max Brooks' The Zombie Survival Guide. Well, it wasn't. Don't get me wrong, this book wasn't bad either. First things first: the book is meant to be taken seriously. The author, [...]

    2. Please note, this review refers to an ARC of “the Survival Handbook”How do you take a simple sewing needle or razor blade and turn it into a compass? What’s a Char Cloth and how do you use it? Can you tie a Siberian hitch? These are some of skills you will learn from “The Survival Handbook”This book provides a very brief overview of many skills that you might need when camping. Most of the chapters are very much geared towards the absolute beginner such as the chapters on gear selectio [...]

    3. I am an indoor girl. Sure, I enjoy watching Survivorman with my sons, but I like civilization. I hope I never have to use much of the information that is in The Survival Handbook, but if I need it, the book is likely to be a great help. I particularly like the instructions for finding and preparing water and food and the first aid section.Because of my lack of expertise in surviving without four walls and indoor plumbing, I asked my husband to take a look at the book. He is an avid hiker, backpa [...]

    4. Totally fascinating. So perfect for my book research. Encyclopedic, fully and helpfully illustrated. Even though I would probably give myself a brain aneurysm from frustration trying to do any of the stuff--i'm an inside boy--I can now pretend I'm taking down game with my handmade lashed-and-notched throwing star, sipping water from my solar still, tending my underground fire, and checking my squirrel snares. Also, now I know that it all boils down to parachute cord, a knife, and a poncho. The t [...]

    5. This may be the best survival related handbook around, it contains a lot of the material that exists inside the US Army manuals, it's almost like a civilian version of those books. You can learn a TON of stuff by simply shuffling around in this book, a definite must-have if you care about survival information and quick solutions to not-so-everyday problems

    6. I have read a number of these books (and have camped, and have taken a few survival skills courses, and have dragged one survival handbook around with me for years, practicing various skills whenever the mood struck me). This is a good one, not perfect, but a solid 4.5 stars. It offers lots of good information and enough detail that you could actually accomplish something by following its directions. He (or they?--authorship is difficult to determine) talk about survival in temperate, icy, jungl [...]

    8. From planning an expedition, to packing essential kits, to discovering what to do on a trail, The Survival Handbook is an invaluable tool when you're in the great outdoors.Among a myriad of outdoor skills, it teaches readers how to make shelters, find water, and spot, catch, and cook wild food.

Now in Paperback!** Review This is another excellent prod [...]

    9. * I actually read this book twice. There's a lot to absorb on the first go-around!* Written by a military tactical survivalist, this book is anything except dull. Well written, well illustrated, and covers what you need to know in different types of environments--from the desert to the arctic to the sea. * Highly recommended, even if you're just going for a weekend camping trip (or will be the next contender on one of those reality shows)

    10. Не плохая, не хорошая книга. Просто практичная и в чем-то интересная. Думаю, что-то новое я узнала, хотя в общем автор придерживается жанра советов "для чайников", возможно, просто допуская, что книга может попасться совсем городским жителям.Думаю, это полезное и интересное ч [...]

    11. I enjoyed The Survival Handbook very much. It easy easy for a lay person to read and give practical advice and ideas. The adivce and how-tos address issues that may arise with anyone in an outdoor hiking or camping situtaion. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves the outdoors and spends a fair amount of time exploring out great outdoors.

    12. Could easily be a volume from an encyclopedia. Nice illustrations and explainations, but super dense. I think this is best used on an "as needed" basis or a pick-em-up book.I can't imagine someone reading the book in one sitting.

    13. Learned an interesting way to kill and gut a bird without a knife. Wow. It's a good reference book but I hope to only use the info I learned in my writing - not real life! There's a reason I was never a boy scout (in addition to not being a boy).

    14. TELLS ME EVERYTHING ABOUT WILDERNESS SUVIVAL. This is the book you should go to in need of some survival advice
