In an effort to curb opioid drug abuse and addiction, the Drug Enforcement Administration DEA has issued new rules that limit the accessibility of hydrocodone, putting chronic pain sufferers who rely on the drug in an impossible situation.
Order this book via Amazon. This is not an all-inclusive text, rather, as the title suggests, it is a collection of practical information you need to survive most desert survival circumstances. The "tips, tricks and skills" provided are easy to understand, effective and can be put to use by even the most inexperienced.
The photographic illustrations provided are effective and used to good effect; sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. Could be used as a manual to include in a desert survival kit.
If you have little or no previous wilderness or survival experience, this text is a good place to start. Could be used as a manual, but is not comprehensive. Just the essentials, which will be enough for many.
Robert "Skip" Stoffel and Brett C. Skip is a co-author of the well-regarded Survival Sense for Pilots and Passengers that is now out of print. There are plenty of useful illustrations, some we have seen in many manuals previously, some new and exclusive to this manual. The subtitle provides a pretty accurate description of what to expect, "a practical guide to survival skills development, planning and preparedness.
Chapters are divided into "Field Guide" and "Planning" sections, but the planning sections are brief and do not significantly detract from its use as a field manual. The information is generally laid out in a logical fashion and most of the guidance I found to be practical, functional and useful.
Waterproof survival manuals are pretty rare, despite how much sense it makes for them to be resistant to the most common enemy of the written word in a survival circumstance.
So, this new waterproof survival manual is a welcome addition, though you do have to pay for that advantage: The book is sized on par with the old Aircrew Survival manual though it is a far, far better manual and not all that lightweight, so it is appropriate for a larger survival kit, not a compact one.
In other words, perfect for an aircraft or vehicle kit as opposed to a personal kit. While clearly marketed to pilots and aircraft operators, it is plenty approrpiate for non-aviation use well.
This is a good choice for someone looking for an in-depth survival manual, more so if they have at least basic survival and medical training to begin with. At this writing, this book is only available from ERI. Harris has a nice way with words and he has a solid and pretty practical approach to survival.
With very little work, this could be an excellent survival manual.Why Bitcoin Can’t Be Money.
