5.0 out of 5 stars Survive- anywhere.
No need for a long review here. This book was written by a professional soldier who was in the SAS, or the Special Air Service. For those not in the know, that's an elite unit of the British Army trained to carry out operations in ALL parts of the world. Eventually, the author became a survival instructor to the SAS, so you can be sure that this guy knows his stuff...

3.0 out of 5 stars OK for general use, with a few glaring problems
It may be impossible to write a survival book that is accurate and authoritative on all environments and all areas of the world, and this is something to keep in mind when purchasing a general survival book like the SAS Survival Handbook.

Ce commentaire est de: The SAS Survival Handbook: How to Survive in the Wild, in Any Climate, on Land or at Sea (Paperback)
This is the best survival manual I have ever read, and I collect survival manuals. This book is the bible, its scope,detail, and practicality is unmatched. I've had this book for years and I still find myself going back to it for techniques to practice. If you are only going to read one survival manual this should be it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Size does matter!, Oct. 14 1998

Too bad this book isn't really "handbook" sized! It would be a great companion to any outdoor expedition if it weren't such a large book. However, the information inside is invaluable. Read it, memorize it, and read it again! It could literally save your life!

My Gem Collins mini book has been all over the world with me, from Tasmania, to Yellowknife as well as Croatia and points in between. I even drag it out camping, and use it to study up on edible stuff;an essential, lightweight piece of kit.

I actually was stranded in the woods for eight days because of a mishap. My car broke down when I got a flat, and smashed into a tree. I had this book with me, and I would not be alive if it weren't written. Thank you.
