5.0 out of 5 stars 98.6 Degrees: The Art of Keeping Your Ass Alive Sept. 26 2003
There are hundreds of survival books out there. HEY - Buy them all but read this one 1st. Its Fun loving , but no nonsense approach to that first 78 hour of a crisis is great. As a outdoor skills trainer and all around outdoor knock about , I'm going to steal a lot of the advice in this book. Well it won't be stealing cuz I know it all anyway. Get this Book!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The art of common sense... Aug. 17 2003
We live our lives supported and encased in artificial buildings and cars and have forgotten the basics of keeping alive. Cody Lundin reminds us that we are still encased in bodies that need special care and that "the wilderness" is right outside your window. I thought I knew a lot of this stuff, but Cody refreshed me on the basics and the details in a simple, direct, humorous, and easy to read style. This is a no nonsense book. You don't need to buy a lot of fancy equipment. Cody encourages you to first, use your head, wise advice in any situation. I'm distributing this book to the teenagers in my family and my 83 year old dad.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT Book ! Dec 24 2008
I've Read them all and this one is the best. Any one who has anything negative to say (whiners) is just a jealous fool. Cody Lundin has been there, done that and wrote a book about it, and I'm glad he did. This is the manual YOU read BEFORE you leave. ! I created my own survival kit using all the Items that the Author himself uses. While I was hundreds of miles from civilization I never once said "Gee I wish I had..." The book helped me maintain a positive attitude when everything went wrong one day during my weeks alone in the woods. I stayed healthy both mentally and physicaly Thanks to my new positive attitude of "Party ON !"

Thank you Mr. Lundin !

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, everything in a book. Sept. 10 2003
By A Customer
Great to have all this information contained in a book one can refer back to, rather than scattered notes and handouts. Highly recommended by many survival experts, both "primitive" and modern philosophies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this Book Aug. 12 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Some people do not like Cody's philosophy and such, his attitude, whatever. I do not agree with everything he does and says, but his books are something entirely else. I have yet to find anything I disagree with in his books. They are an easy read, well laid out, and give information for both the knowledgable person and the first time beginner.

There are some points I read and found I prefered alternatives I already use, but there was nothing I found pure wrong, incorrect, or otherwise not of use in this book (or the other one I have).

Great resource with good tips and a font of excellent suggestions.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have book for everyone! April 7 2014
By Grant
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the best survival book I have ever read. Cody does a great job in explaining how the body works, and how it reacts to temperature change. Whether you're an outdoors enthusiast or not, this is a must read for anyone who goes outside. The author skips over all the outrageous 'survial' techniques out there, and focuses on the statistical 3 day survival situation. 3 days in which statistically, you die of exposure or are found. So his theory includes not wasting time and energy on food, his belief is that one will use more energy looking for food than they actually find. This cuts out all hunting, fishing, trapping, and wild vegetation. The main focus is hydration and maintaining core body temperature(and getting rescued of course). And it's a fun read, I was actually disappointed when it ended lol

I love hiking or running in the wilderness by myself. I thought taking some extra water, food and a few articles of clothing was enough. Was I ever wrong. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible book
This book was a complete waste of my money. Way too much philosophy and theory on why/how the body gets hypothermic and so on with hardly any skills on how to survive. Read more
