Summary and Info
A necessary and effective manual of urban survival techniques—a companion to the SAS Survival Handbook (over a million copies sold). John «Lofty» Wiseman is the author of the bestselling SAS Survival Handbook, the definitive guide to survival in the wild from Britains Special Air Service. Now he has compiled a complete guide to survival in the urban jungle. Every year in America there are thousands of fatal accidents in the home—more than on the roads, and many more than in the great outdoors. Fire, electricity, water, gas, sharp knives, poisons, chemicals—these valuable tools can quickly become dangerous weapons when not treated with proper respect and understanding. Add to these the risks of travel, terrorism, muggings, rape, tsunamis, and earthquakes. We are constantly reminded that the world is a dangerous place.
