My only disappointment was that my E-ARC was missing pages so I didn’t get the entire manuscript.Rich Johnson has written an entertaining and informative guide to survival. The in-color illustrations and diagrams are excellent for each skill being taught and are fun to peruse even for us couch potatoes and dreamers of adventure.
Truly varied in the situations it covers, it is a useful resource not only for Boy Scouts and outdoorsy folks, but for anyone who realizes that our way of life is a fragile network that can be thrown out of whack with one flat tire, and maybe we should have a backup plan for stuff that can come up, even if it doesn't. I am a bit obsessed with preparedness and survival techniques, so my family and I will be ready for when disaster strikes.

The mylar film fabric helps you survive in many ways: it deflects heat under a hot sun in the desert, protects you from rain and wind during a violent storm in the mountains, conserves up to 90% of your body heat in the winter, and acts as a rescue signal to help keep you get spotted from a distance. In his book The Ultimate Survival Manual Rich Johnson offers a comprehensive guide that will prepare you for all those pesky eventualities such as being mauled by a bear, finding yourself in a workplace shooting or making it through a mud slide.Packed into four big chapters - Essentials, Wilderness, Disaster, Urban - this short yet informative guide gives knowledgeable advice on many likely, or not so likely, situations you could one day be faced with. I had not realized this would in a survival manual though I know survival skills for urban living.This title is packed full of wonderful pictures and hints for rough situations.
The how-to instructions are limited to one page or less for each skill so may not be as detailed as some would-be adventurers might need if in an actual survival situation, but with this book in hand, smart, daring, and desperate-to-survive folks will be well on their way to getting home safely once more.
I do not feel that I would safely be able to keep not only myself alive but those around me with this book.
Survival in an urban environment is not something found in all survival manuals but the truth is that in the US many of us would be faced with exactly that situation; this is one of three sections including Wilderness and Disaster. You could even stash this blanket in your vehicle, when you aren't out in the wilderness, for help if your car ever breaks down far from civilization. You don’t have to go out in the wilderness to be in a situation that requires survival techniques. With that out of the way, here are my thoughts on The Ultimate Survival Manual.The GoodThe Layout- The layout of this book was great. I'm especially pleased that Ultimate Survival doesn't foster the "don't trust anyone" mindset of some such manuals. Know what to do when the going gets tough.In an Urban Crisis Arm yourself with the latest self-defense moves, weapons tips, and home-protection tactics, plus crucial strategies for handling bad guys and bad situations at home and abroad.
No harm in keeping the spirits up with some jokes when faced by a hungry bear, right?Though obviously, when lives are at risk, the most important thing is to know what to do, or what not to do (playing McGuyer is usually not a good idea). There’s a chance that there is a large amount of information in this book you will never need. The manual includes many handy tips from how to filter water while lost in the wilderness, how to start a fire in the snow, to helping someone struck by lightning or dealing with downed power lines in a car, and how to throw a knife or defend yourself with keys. I really liked the comic book style survival stories, it was really unique to see and I think it helps the reader better understand how the people in those situations survived.The Diagrams- I loved how they used real photos. In fact, Rule #4 is "Live with integrity" which the authors say involves caring about others. Complemented with photos and illustrations, there is plenty of background information included too (who would have thought that not all bears are equally scary). However, the one technique that you learn that later saves yours or someone else’s life is invaluable. This manual is full of useful information that can be used in daily life but that will better prepare many of us for those situations that we think may never happen to us, but one day do.

Skills 164-166 deal with volcanic eruptions.This manual doesn't just inform you about what to do when a disaster strikes - it delves into wild animal attacks, getting lost in the wilderness (all types of wildernesses) and so much more.
In addition to providing case studies and instructions on how to deal with specific situations, there is appropriate general information about some disaster-causing events such as a volcano blowing or an earthquake or tsunami. Additionally you'll find case studies as well as life-threatening situations which the author himself lived through.
What to eat in the woods, how to tell if it's going to rain, how to lightning-proof your house, how to stop a train (yeah, I know!!), eat roadkill and render the fat, how to navigate using stars. Sure with those you can get the basic gist, but you miss all the details that a color photograph can bring to the table.The BadTo much Information- I know that your thinking isn't to much better than to little? All of this supports the basic tenets of this book: knows what's happening, know what's important, plan and follow through. In this instance I'd rather have less information but more in depth, over what it actually contains which is to much variety and not enough detail. Okay maybe learned is not the right word but I realized there was something I hadn’t thought of. Rich recommends that you keep an emergency bag in your office or place of work that includes rugged clothing, socks and a pair of tennis shoes.
I think the reader could seriously put someones life in jeopardy if they only followed the steps within these pages.
The bag is available if you need to leave your work in a hurry and are not dressed for an emergency. I would, almost, have thought it unnecessary but I guarantee that one day you wear the tight skirt or new dress shoes is the day that the weather turns and you have to evacuate or a shooter comes into the area and you have to flee.It’s a scary and dangerous world out there. It tells you to check the minimalist of details and no real information on how to rectify the situation. If your in a survival situation that information is just not going to cut it.My biggest issue with The Ultimate Survival Manual, is I really honestly feel that it was written for those who live vicariously through TV Shows and Books and not as a serious survival guide that will help keep people alive.
I think if it was written as a Tips and Tricks Guide these negatives wouldn't even be popping up. A survival Guide to me is something I should be able to rely on to help aid in my Survival. I cannot confidently do that with this book.Final ThoughtsIn the end, I did learn a couple new non survival based tips and tricks that were awesome.
I would suggest reading this book ONLY if you want just a basic guide to shove on your shelves.
