Second problem is that some off the information in here is simply wrong. I'm hoping that's the result of a bad editor/ghostwriter rather than the author being this wrong.
Examples: Pg. 50, cold weather survival; yes, alcohol does cause vasodilation which leads to increased heat loss. But caffeine and tobacco cause vaso-constriction, which can contribute to frostbite. Yes, both are bad in cold weather, but stating wrong info dilutes ones trust in the res of the info provided.
Pg. 94, desalinating sea water; minor but important point is missing - remove the tin can before trying to drink the water.
Pg. 116, choice of shotgun ammo; this is a major problem and so wrong it could cost lives. Contrary to what's written, buckshot WILL penetrate multiple interior walls. Worse, again contrary to what's written, the pattern size from a shotgun is roughly 1" per yard of distance from the target. So at 3-6 yards that you'd see inside a home, that's a maximum of a 2" pattern, which means you DO have to aim. Did Joe Biden write this section?
Elsewhere there are a couple references to saying NOT to use Goretex because it's not breathable. Well, Goretex is breathable. So the question is, did the author mean don't use Goretex BECAUSE it's breathable (and thus, unlike vapor barrier clothing, will make you colder), or did he mean you SHOULD use Goretex because it's breathable?
Those are the major problems I've found so far. The rest of the book is ok I guess, but for people who've already trained in wilderness medicine, advanced first aid, or have backpacked/camped a lot, this book has less to offer.

Overall: entertaining, simple straight forward advice which is easy to pick up and gather the basics from. Recommended.
It's really interesting and has a whole host of random survival situations, from how to collect water in a rainforest to how to survive a stampede. Even if you never venture further than the next town, I'd highly recommend this book.
Entertaining in most parts, alarming in a few .
