Having served 26 years in the SAS, John ‘Lofty’ Wiseman truly has inside knowledge and deep expertise in the field of survival.

Drawing on his training and experience in the elite special forces, Lofty gives wonderfully detailed and clear guidance on the fundamentals of survival: kit, disaster survival, health, food and navigation. Broken down into 11 chapters, his elaboration on those subjects is concise yet explicit, supported by realistic illustrations and easy to follow blueprints where needed.

Subtitled “The ultimate guide to surviving anywhere“, the SAS survival handbook is not location specific, instead it includes guidance for survival in all climates and covers survival situations on both land and at sea. It even has a section dealing with air emergencies.

The chapter on Health is particularly valuable and should be read by anyone wishing to prepare themselves for the possibility of being without access to medical care. Wiseman covers the fundamentals of life saving first-aid as well as instruction for less serious and yet common minor injuries. There is also a section on natural medicine using medicinal plants.

The guide covers all of practical elements of survival such as fire starting, shelter, food procurement, water sanitation, and much, much more. Written in easy to understand language, the book has an absolute abundance of information that could one day save your life.

John Wiseman truly is an expert in his field, and we highly recommend his best-selling book.
