Must read for the outdoor enthusiast!!

Not only a great read for those interested in learning the art of self reliance but an excellent book that connects us to use the resources provided to us by the natural world. Not only are the techniques use, but I have utilized them to teach others in the art and have provided me with skills I use when I hit the trails. We often dont make the connection between the products on the shelves and all the plants that they come from. You will never look at the natural world the same again, you will begin to see tools, food and medicine all around you!

Wouldn't call this "The Ultimate Guide"

I listened to this in its entirety because I paid for it but I was highly underwhelmed. Personally, I ALWAYS caught it when the narrator would say E-G, instead of example or for example. I also disliked the fact that there's no pdf to show some of the material he describes, such as knot tying. Dave Canterburys book has a decent one. Overall for this book I truly feel that other than a few decent tips/tricks here and there this should be called "Basic stuff to obviously know" in a survival situation.

Not well suited for audio

This is a book full of good tips, which will surely be applicable if you ever find yourself in a survival situation. However, as there’s lots of lists and short tips and tricks, the book is not really suited for audiobook adaptation. I will probably buy it again as an ebook at some point, so I can enjoy it better.

Not ideal as an audiobook without its diagrams

Lots of good information, but it's heavily dependent on accompanying diagrams (eg. edible plant identification, knots, trap-making, map reading) which make it useless as a standalone audiobook.

Extremely boring narrator, completely monotone

I wish I didn't buy this, not because the content is inadequate but the narrator was very boring to listen to. He was consistently monotone throughout and made the listen extremely unsatisfying. Additionally in terms of the content, if you're looking for survival tips in times of conflict or uncertainty I wouldn't suggest this book. The author advises contacting police and mountain rescue services and alerting authorities of your location which is not exactly "surviving anywhere". I'm sure there is a lot that is useful however I am quite disappointed most with the monotone voice. Sorry to offend the reader but I have to be honest.
