Now with a flexibind cover and small format perfect for the glove compartment and backpack, this edition gives readers the tools necessary to survive the worst circumstances and make it out alive.
Excellent survival manual
This is an excellent abridged field (think slighty water resistant) version of Hawke's 600 page survival manual. I own the full version, my wife has this version which is nearly as good and what we keep in the car. I love his writing style which is pretty much the way he speaks. He gives a lot of very good information here. Worth the $10
