De verdad, si alguna vez necesitáis una guía de superviviencia..ESTA ES LA GUÍA DEFINITIVA!
Un manual antológico; que va desde los principios más básicos ( orientación, primeros auxilios..) a contarnos auténticas barbaridades ( no se si escogía la mejor palabra), cómo : hacer una traqueotomía de emergencia ( y otras perlas), sobrevivir en medio del mar, sacar alimento de los esqueletos animales y otras partes de estos, sacar agua de dónde sea y hacer un pozo o el abc de la supervivencia frente a

Someone bought me this book - people buy me a lot of books (and socks) because what else do you buy a man of my years? Anyway, this was a really interesting read and I will put some of these techniques to the test. I might try and snare my 95 year old wife :-)

90% of the book is about common sense but it can gives some good advices that can really save your life in difficult situation.
The utility of this book depends on your previous knowledge on the arguments, anyway is good to keep it at home.

If such pearls of wisdom like learning not to use your hair dryer in the bathtub and how to recognize genital warts count as your version of "urban survival" you've found the right book. If you want real information, look elsewhere.

Mostly common sense stuff about everyday life (eg dieting, de-stressing, driving in fog, home repairs, how to use tools, self defense etc). Not at all what I was expecting. Basically how to live an everyday life.

Excellent book to have on hand, whether living in urban, suburban, or rural area. Everything from daily basics to the rare and (hopefully never needed) tips for violence avoidance and disaster survival.

I enjoy manuals on how to do things generally...but this nifty book is about making it when you are travelling light. Now that's useful information.

When Technology Fails is a far better book. This is pretty much common sense work.
