"A classic outdoor manual. ... Written by John Wiseman, former
survival instructor for Britain's elite Special Air Service (an
all-conditions strike force considered by some to be tougher than
the U.S. Navy SEALs), the book addresses every conceivable disaster
scenario. ... Don't leave home without it."--Outside magazine
"This step-by-step survival bible has... prepared [me] for anything. ... This edition's most valuable lessons arrive in its new 'Urban Survival' section, which features tactics for countering espionage and dealing with urban animal attacks."--Washington Post
