The original survival handbook - the choice of both survival expert and novice, this book is the international bestseller which in the 20 years since it was first published has been often imitated but never bettered.

Written by ex-SAS survival expert John 'Lofty' Wiseman; based on the most recent training techniques of the Special Air Service - the world's most famous elite fighting force; and updated by survival specialists, this book provides unrivalled advice about how to survive outdoors, on land, or at sea, in any weather, in any part of the world - whatever your survival situation.

Updated contents include:

Be prepared - The latest, most resilient, resourceful and eco-friendly must-have kit

On the move - Up-to-date navigation technologies such as GPS are discussed and explained

Health - The current understanding relating to the body's coping mechanisms in extreme circumstances is expertly applied to survival

Disasters - Increasingly-changing environmental conditions are addressed: what to do in the face of flash flooding or fast-spreading fire

Bushcraft - How to be self sufficient and survive in unfamiliar terrain over an indefinite period of time

About The Author
