Based on the TV Series - Born Survivor - gives you hints on how to survive on different conditions: desert, jungle, mountains, sea. If you've seen the TV show you'll recall plenty of the situations described in this book. Nevertheless it's quite interesting to learn simple but useful techniques on making a shelter, finding food, water, orientation. I particularly enjoyed the desert scenario where one must always keep in mind if the action about to be taken is worth the water you loose.
Whatever the case, always remember the rule of 3s: 3 hours without decent protection from extreme heat or cold; 3 days without water; 3 weeks without food. So set your priorities straight!
