    One thought on “Survive!: Essential Skills and Tactics to Get You Out of Anywhere - Alive”

    1. Great tips on everything under the spectrum of wilderness know-how and survival tips. I certainly never plan to be lost in the wilderness, but this gave me some good tips and ideas for the Appalachian trail hike I want to one day do.

    2. Les Stroud's Survive!Wk.41; Bk.41Meet Les Stroud also known as Survivorman! I've been kind of hooked on this guy for the past few weeks. I don't know what it is about survival and adventure in the great outdoors, but I am absolutely enamored with it all. I always have been; however, I'm never able to get out quite as much as I would like to, which is all my fault. I've read my fair share of survival manuals/books hand and hand with "simple-living" texts. Some of the survivor books were gimmicky [...]

    3. Many of these books are a chore to read. They can be like textbooks, manuals, lectures, field guides, etc. Basically the sorts of books that 5% of the population enjoys reading, 10% of the population can be convinced to read, and most of the rest would have to be forced to read. This book was enjoyable. I suspect that some might consider it light, but a book that is fun to read, and is actually read, cover to cover, can offer a lot more benefit to more people than more 'solid' books sitting on b [...]

    4. Well, this is a tough book for me to review. It's not a novel or a story it's more like a manual, or handbook. If you are looking for excitement, you won't find it in this book, but I did find a lot of it interesting. One problem people might have with this book is that it is very specific and wouldn't appeal to a wide audience, but I guess if you own the book, or are reading it, you find survival appealing. If you want to learn how to survive, or are taking a trip where survival might become a [...]

    5. An easy read, filled with only relevant Information that you could actually use in a survival situation. None of the unrealistic practises that fill the pages of most of these type of books. If you are an outdoorsman that's read 100 of these books, or a city slicker that's read none - pick this one up and have an entertaining read. It might just save your life.

    6. From a perspective of planning and taking a trip in the wild then getting into a survival situation. Water, fire, shelter then food (includes fishing, trapping techniques and hunting). Tips for moving location (navigation and modes of transport). A bit about dangers and hazards. A chapter on weather and another on clothing. Last 3 chapters deal with first aid and survival skills.

    7. Fantastic guide on general survival. It's hard to review a survival book unless you have used the material for yourself, but at the least it was entertaining and informative. Being a big fan of Les Stroud, I don't have a lot to compare it to but will say it is very practical. While there are fine examples of survival stories and situations, this manual is very much a how-to, and something that should be carried on person in case you are heading out of civilisation more than it is a front to back [...]

    8. Common Sense Survival GuideLes Stroud provides specific details to make intelligent decisions in a survival situation and prepare accordingly. He doesn't glamourize serious life and death situations like so many authors do.

    9. I really liked this book by Les Stroud. The setting of this book ranges from the arctic tundra to the desert. There is only one character in the book and that is Les Stroud himself. The conflict of the book is that he is stuck in a whole bunch of different survival situations. Another conflict is how to make food and also how to make his shelter. I thought that the book was very cool. I liked how I can relate the book to his show on tv. Another thing I liked about the book is that he taught you [...]

    10. A WONDERFUL SURVIVAL BOOK! I have read lots of books like these and this is one of the best on the market.A must have for campers and outdoors fanatics!

    11. Surprisingly devoid of usable information for a book of its size. Nearly 400 pages of pop survival, in which the "author", creator of the television show "Survivorman", briefly lists a bunch of bullet points outlining things that are mostly common sense. He leaps around between subjects, takes a jab at his competitor "Man vs Wild", and constantly contradicts himself, often saying you should do something and in the next sentence saying you shouldn't. He does this several times when it comes to wa [...]

    12. Les Stroud, host of Survivorman, has written a brief and concise book in which he has described basic survival strategies for every region of the world. He emphasizes basics especially having a positive attitude and being able to creatively use what you have available to meet your survival needs.With all the varied travel options frequently used today by every age group, it is not difficult to imagine a sudden survival situation arising on the ocean after a badly planned Seadoo or kayak rental, [...]

    13. UPDATE: I brought this book with me on a trip out into the bushd it did serve one really awesome purpose. The pages burn pretty well, and I used it to start a few fires. That's about all it was good for, although I'm not sure it's worth carrying cause it's too darn heavy.*correction* my better half has just informed me that the pages burned horribly. Must have been thinking of a different survival book. -old review-This book isokay. It's got a nice strong cover and includes a DVD. I mean, I gues [...]

    14. From the sun-scorched sands of the Kalahari to the snake-infested jungles of the , Les Stroud has made a life of surviving in the harshest—and most remote—regions on Earth.Now, the creator, producer, and host of the hit television program Survivorman transfers his decades of knowledge and experience to the pages of Survive!, a practical guide that gives everyday readers a no-nonsense look at the real world of survival.Stroud offers readers the essential skills and tactics necessary to endure [...]

    15. In my opinion I thought the book Survive was an excellent read. Especially for people who are fascinated by all the outdoor survival shows, or just the outdoors in general. This book goes over all aspects of solo survival or group survival. It doesn’t just explain where you can find fresh water where ever you are, or how to administer a test to see if plants are edible or poisonous. It also goes over the psychological aspect of survival, which I think can be a great factor that determines if y [...]

    16. Written simply and with usually sufficient explanations. Les Stroud was originally somewhat of a contrarian regarding survivalism and he seems to occasionally bask in this iconoclasm. A stock phrase peppered through the book is, "Most survivalists believe this, however that". If anything, it's refreshing to hear alternate viewpoints. Many times the lines between survivalism (as in, being in a life-or-death situation and needing to get out immediately) and primitive living is muddied. Stroud is v [...]

    17. I have been a Les Stroud fan since first seeing him on his show "Survivor Man" so it was a no-brainer that I had to read this book when I saw it.I found this book to be both entertaining and informative. Although this book focuses on how to prepare for survival in situations where you are traveling, I think it also covers basic knowledge anyone should know, just in case they find themselves in a survival situation. Here are a few takeaways I have from this book:1) When going on a guided tour, th [...]

    18. I found this book to be "OK." I am a fan of Les Stroud and of Survivorman, so I was looking forward to this book. However, I was disappointed. Les seems to contradict himself a lot in this book. He'll tell you what the experts think, but then disagree with it and tell you what his experience had taught him. Which is just fine, but then he'll go back on what he said and then agree with the experts again. It gets really confusing, and makes this book very difficult to read. Also, he seems to talk [...]

    19. Les Stroud is a survival expert who presents a lot of the important skills and experiences that he has acquired over his many years of wilderness exploration. I really enjoyed how accessible his information was, as well as how he broke down the many elements of survival into individual chapters. The information is concise and thorough, but it is not overwhelming. He doesn't list every single knot you can learn to tie, or all 50+ ways that you can trap an animal, but what he does offer are the mo [...]

    20. Great book covering broad range of survival basics. Explains how to assess your situation, the importance of staying calm, how to use various components of survival kits, how to leverage all available resources, risks in different geo's and how to turn problems into opportunities. Makes you really appreciate the daily conveniences we take for granted - even just a glass of water. Also you can tell author really respects nature digs becoming part of the wilderness. Not sure I could be alone for w [...]

    21. Survive! is not exactly the type of book you read for fun but it was a fun read, if that makes any sense. It outlines a lot of good, no-nonsense tactics for surviving if you become trapped in a variety of harsh wilderness environments. I'm a fan of Les Stroud's television shows, and I think he and his editor did a good job of translating some of his sense of humor and easy-going persona to the book. I doubt that I'll ever have to use any of the information found in Survive! but I'm glad to hav [...]

    22. I Love Survivorman, I loved the book. But It was obvious to me that he had written a first edition. And that he had written it himself. Really that's my only criticism. I guess I kept comparing it in my mind to the US Army Survival manual. Less's insights and anecdotes are what makes this a fun read, I don't plan on spending a lot of time in the ian jungle and the tips for survival on an open water raft weren't really applicable to me, but I just love the Survivorman, so I would still recommend [...]

    23. The perfect book to have on hand for when the zombie apocalypse strikes!Love his show. This book is broken down into chapters that focus on one subject each such as: fire, food, or shelter. Most helpful are the suggestions for what to carry in a kit. Les has suggestions for two types of kits, a small carry-with-you-everywhere one and a larger prepared-for-the-worst one. I like his common sense approach.

    24. Just getting the kids to the park for the afternoon is a big deal for me, but I'm still fascinated with survival skills - probably from growing up reading the Clan of the Cave Bear series. This book was clear, concise, and packed with useful information. There are a few things I learned that I want to try with my kids this summer. The text on the emotional aspects of survival was particularly interesting to me as it can be applied to nearly any difficult situation.

    25. This book was interesting, even though most likely I won't have to survive on my own somewhere. You never know, though, I get lost easily. There was a ton of information in it, too much to retain in one reading, so I will probably read it a couple more times. It wouldn't be a bad book to bring along if you were going camping or hiking in the wild where you may get stuck somewhere. I liked it, it is probably not for everybody.

    26. If you have any survival training at all, you will find this book redundant. However, if you are starting outdoor activities for the first time or considering a long driving trip across Canada where you might face the possibility of a survival situation, this book is a good read, if only to tell you the skills you need to learn if anything happens.

    27. Excellent advice on survival from an expert, the creator of the Survivorman TV series. The information is well organized and presented in simple language so that anyone can grasp the concepts. There are numerous pictures and illustrations that present skills that are difficult to convey with words alone.

    28. This book is an instruction manual on how to survive. One would assume it was dry reading but I found it entertaining; there's some great macguyver stuff in there and real survival stories. It is also fully illustrated making the descriptions easier to understand. If you go camping take it with you like the author says it makes a great fire starter or toilet paper.

    29. Interesting read. Hopefully I'll never need these skills, but I'm glad the info is now tucked away in my brain. I liked how the last chapter addresses emergency situations (e.g. earthquakes, floods) that could create a survival situation even at home. I look forward to practicing these skills :/ my next camping trip!

    30. A decent overview of survival strategies combined with some excellent stories. In general a better buy than most of the survival books that focus on long term living in the wilderness rather than what I want to go home very quickly. Plus you have to respect a guy that does a survival show and carries his own camera everywhere.
