I agree with JamesLawrence. This book is clumsily written, and the smattering of useful info is lost in the confusion. It is a shame, since Dave Canterbury's knowledge is not in question - the poor presentation & organization fail to deliver effectively.

This book was not well written, and only touched base on subjects. The SAS survival handbook by John "Lofty" Wiseman is 100% better. I would not recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn the outdoors
