Listened to the series while hiking. Pleasurable preoccupation. Lots of action, surprises, and a great ending.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Try not to walk on both sides of the road at the same time.

Would you ever listen to anything by Matt Graham and Josh Young again?

Probably not.

What about Tom Perkins’s performance did you like?

Good reader. Did his job well.

Was Epic Survival worth the listening time?

Yeah, basically. Though I was disheartened once I got deep into the book.

Any additional comments?

Seems (to me), there is a little too much hypocrisy in the book..... I enjoyed how he separated himself from the societal demands of western civilization, and how being so pure, he hasn't time nor desire to be critical of others. Yet in the book, it turns and does just that.Pretty much turned me off for the duration of the book. I'll hand it to Matt though. He has gone on to be a very successful person!

Personally, I was anticipating more review of case study. Became a bit long winded on philisophic woulda shoulda coulda.
But overall, it's an enjoyable work. Recommended read/listen.

Any person feeling the tiring burden of our civilization, this account of retiring to the NE bush of Alaska is truly releaving.

Important information without question. However for me personally, the bad news is overwhelming. Perhaps I'll come back again someday.

Probably pretty entertaining for non law enforcement /non-aviators. As a retired career dual rated pilot who over 35 years had seen it all, I thought I might find it a bit more entertaining. I didn't. Didn't find the reader all that entrancing either. Not my cup of tea.
