I haven't read it, but anything you can learn to improve your survival skills is worth the money spent. Some of the things in books get you to think "outside the box" which is one of the keys to survival.
I have not read it. I was in the army and if the book is from the army then it would be worth reading. They are giving you ideas that have come up and how to stay alive. They do offer survival training courses. It was pretty cool and I did learn a lot of stuff that has stayed with me through the years.
I've been to a survival school in AZ, and the instructor gave us this advise for survival books:
Go to the desert survival area, and if it says you can build a solar stile, put the book back. You can't use a solar still in the dry desert, it works by sucking moisture out of plants and/or the soil. Most plants here are very dry and of course the soil is dry, so you're not going to get much if any water. The instructor did a video of an example stile, and did it just after a rain, still getting very little water. He worked harder and lost more body water [sweat] that he would be able to get from the stile
I own it. it is very informative and has tactics like making bunkers and self defense too, it is a great book. notice how the Marines dont need a survival book.
I would say yes I learned a lot from it and still have it. got it from Kaufman's
