SAS Urban Survival Handbook

Customer Reviews:

Thorough coverage of everyday hazards, but who needs it!

By Clint Simpson - January 29, 2001

After reading about this book, I looked high and low for it. "Written by a former SAS man after his experience in the military did little to prepare him for the dangers in civilian life." I expected a manual on self-defense, and their legal issues. (Something Nicolas Cage's character from "Con Air" could have used) After finally getting a copy, the book has little to do with what the catalog implied. The title byline reads "how to protect yourself from domestic accident, mugging, burglary and attack." Three of the four were in the same chapter! What we did get covers the dangers from stress, pollution, even lead paint to driving and safe sex to self defense and terrorism.The book's good points are it covers amazing scope of subject matter. It doesn't linger on any one topic too long; it simply states the dangers involved with whatever hazard in a few paragraphs, then on to the next item.

Not a survival manual!

By K. Dye - March 25, 2008

I am a fan of "lofty's" other book, and as an avid survivalist I must at least let others who are like me know, that this book is more suited to the elderly.
It does not deal with any SAS style survival methods, and is very bland in any defense situations.
The actual basis of the book is urban survival which it does not deal with on any level other than making sure your windows are locked and your electric blanket is turned off at night to not start a fire.
Dissapointed is a kind word for what I was when actually sitting and reading this book.
Do not buy if survival in a urban setting is what you want to learn.

Beware not what you think

By B. Berry - March 13, 2009

Beware this book is not a survival guide. If you are looking for surviving in an urban environment after a disaster don't waste your money.

This book is filled with simple material such as Vit-C is good for a cold, don't leave toys on the ground or you could trip over them and don't run with tools because you could get hurt if you fall. If this is what your looking for the book does a great job with good illistrations and explains everything in detail. If you are looking for surviving in an urban environment after a disaster look elsewhere.
