  1. Very useful book although shemes are not that clear .A must for campers ,hikers and anyone willing to improve his survival skills.
    Rating: 4 / 5

  2. While there is *some* valid material in this book, much of the “survival” information simply does not work, or doesn’t work nearly as well as the author claims. If you have more than a nodding acquaintance with survival and camping, this book will be utterly useless to you.

    As other reviewers have stated, the writing style in this book is extremely poor. One might well imagine that this book has been transcribed almost verbatim from the author and his buddies’ fishing stories while knocking back a few beers at the local tavern. Whoever proofread/edited this book spells worse than the average American 3rd grader, has no concept whatsoever of how to use common punctuation, and needs to get the “E” fixed on their typewriter.
    Rating: 1 / 5

  3. I applaud the efforts by the writer, but it is obvious that nobody edited it. It is as though he wrote the entire book in an afternoon and never looked back. Many sections are clearly copied straight from someone’s website. The pictures used are fine in some parts and horrible in others. I would recommend many other books over this one. Don’t waste your money.

  4. This isn’t a bad book. It was just not what I was expecting. I ordered this book thinking that the focus would be on the SUBURBAN and URBAN. The traps and outdoor survival skills were not relevant information. There are better and more comprehensive field survival manuals on the book shelves. Very thin on survival in the concrete jungle.

  5. To quote page 127 of the book, “First off don’t be disappointed if you are not having immediate success, nothing in this life is designed that way and you know it. It takes patience and perseverance to learn all the “What ifs,” that can happen on the trap line and gain the experience to increase your yields.”

    I also feverishly looked for a quote in the book where the author stated he isn’t the best writer (It’s in the book but I couldn’t find it). No, he’s just a guy with a heck of a lot of knowledge that could/can save your life in an urban or wilderness setting. Those that nit pick the grammer in this book are of course entitled to their opinion. Therefore, if scholarly grammer, punctuation, and font are your biggest concerns please don’t buy this book. However, if your looking for life saving information and are not as concerned with perfect punctuation look no further.

    Mr. Foster has a tremendous amount of knowledge packed into such a small book. Here are some examples:

    Did you know you could use the ashes from your fire to clean your dishes?

    Did you know coffee repels ants?

    Turkeys are so stupid you can lure them into a trap and they can’t find their way out (you will have to buy the book to learn how to make the trap).

    You can make great fire starter with cotton balls and petrolleum jelly.

    Also there is good information on how to make water drinkable using the sun.

    Learn how to make a solar cooker with aluminum foil, a reynolds oven cooking bag and a card board box (no joke).

    One of the parts I especially enjoyed was a little article by Bruce “Buckshot” Hemming on the danger wild dogs (you know formerly tame dogs) pose in a crisis. He details how they can pack, that people will set their dogs loose, and that they will eat dead bodies thus learning to put humans on the menu. Don’t think that’s a joke! I’ve had old farmers on my parents farm tell me about former domesticated dogs that got together and almost killed a guy. That loving dog you set loose might become a ruthless killer. Don’t trust stray dogs in a crisis. SHOOT THEM ON SIGHT…

    Finally, I would like to say that there is SO MUCH information in here you will have to read this book at least twice (and not because it’s hard to read). Put this and another survival book in your “bug out” gear.
