When disaster strikes, time is of the essence. The people who survive are those who know what to do: They have their earthquake kits packed, their compasses at the ready, and their self-defense moves down pat. Everyone wants to believe that they are that person—the one who would prevail whether they found themselves facing a tornado or an angry bear.
Filled with clear, concise instructions, helpful diagrams, essential checklists, and inspirational first-person stories from Rich Johnson and the survival pros at Outdoor Life, The Ultimate Survival Manual: 333 Skills that Will Get You Out Alive is a fascinating armchair read that might just save your life. Sprinkled throughout are real-life “extreme survival” stories of amazing feats that both inform and entertain. Even if the most terrifying thing you have ever survived is a traffic jam, this book is a must-read.
