Publisher's Summary

An up-to-the-minute survival guide from the creator of Survivorman explores how to stay alive in the wild, in the jungle, in the desert, and in urban disasters.

From the sun-scorched sands of the Kalahari to the snake-infested jungles of the Amazon, Les Stroud has made a life of surviving in the harshest - and most remote - regions on Earth. 

Now, the creator, producer, and host of the hit television program Survivorman transfers his decades of knowledge and experience to the audiobook Survive!, a practical guide that gives everyday listeners a no-nonsense look at the real world of survival. 

Stroud offers listeners the essential skills and tactics necessary to endure in any corner of the globe, along with a wealth of insider information born of his own experiences in the outdoors and unavailable in any other book. Listeners will learn: 

  • How to make a survival shelter and why a lean-to is largely a waste of time. 
  • Why survival kits are important and why you should make your own. 
  • Where to find water and why drinking contaminated water is sometimes warranted. 
  • How to locate and trap small animals and why the notion of tracking and hunting large game is largely a pipe dream. 

Whether seasoned in the outdoor arts or new to adventuring, all listeners will learn something from Survive! Stroud's many colorful anecdotes and cut-to-the-chase philosophy not only make for an entertaining listen, but also enhance anyone's ability to focus on the main goal when everything else has gone wrong - survival.  

Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Outstanding storyteller, director actor & musician

I've always enjoyed watching / listening to Les Stroud in his Survivorman TV series. His narrating skills were smooth and kept you involved in the whole show. Les continues to do the same with his book which I already own but when I saw Les was the narrator on the Audible version of Survive!, I bought it the day it came out. Please keep in mind that Survive! is a technical learning book, and that if you want to truly learn from it, you will be listening to it multiple times. With Les as the narrator, it makes it enjoyable to do just that.

Thorough, Valuable Information

I’ve always enjoyed survival equipment and Les’ TV show. This complete guide did not disappoint. I find myself listening again and again while doing things around the house or before bed. There are many pointers that apply to everyday life as well as any survival situation. Les is very sincere in imparting a lifetime of survival wisdom in one place. This book is no-nonsense; no cheesy humor to detract from the valuable insights provided. One great tip that he really hammers home is the value of knowledge provided by locals and those that have actually been to the places that you are planning to explore. Books and the internet are no substitute for knowledge gained through actual experience, especially in remote locations.

Packed with wisdom, I highly recommend this audio book. Les does a great job of narrating and his passion and expertise really come through. Well worth the time and investment.

A solid quality book

I will admit that I am a BIG fan of Les Stroud and his work. He's very authentic and has a right to be proud of that. This is a great book. For any fans like me, you will find alot of the material is covered in Survivorman episodes.
So at first I was upset and mumbling, "There's not much new here." But I stopped myself because this book is so good. Anyone who has not watched alot of Survivorman episodes should find a ton of value here. For for the fans it's a useful, single-source.
Let's face it. Would you rather learn - or be *entertained* by another author who is more of an actor than a survival instructor.
And Les did his own narration - and he did it well.
Did I score it a 5 when maybe it's a 4? Maybe. But it's a solid guide.
I hope Les does more audiobooks. Not just because I'm a fan, but because I have a high-level of confidence in Les because of the quality and approach.
