    I just finished reading (and marking up) this book. I found this a very useful. I already had an extensive set of survival items I had assembled for camping. (There is a lot of overlap between a Bug Out Bag (BOB) and a backpack loaded for multi-day wilderness camping.) However, I identified a number of items that I could add to my kit. Within the various categories, the author compares and describes different items — types of whistles or compasses for example. If you are not sure what you might need for a BOB or camping trip, this is a good place to start.

    This book is not about survival skills. This is about the tools and gear you need to survive and how to assemble those items. One nice feature is the different methods you can assemble kits – from pocket size to vehicles.

    I found a couple of issues with the book, which was published in 2013. In water purification he makes no mention of a popular filter system. However, he does describe the water filter on his website. Also, he has several checklists in the back. The book cites a website for downloading copies of the lists, But that URL, which was for the publisher of the book, is no longer valid. I contacted the author. He told me the URL was added by the publisher. Nevertheless, the lists in the back of the book are very useful.

    The best books written about survival kits, from simple to complex from small to large kits. I built my first survival kit when I was in High School, that was around 1969 when 3 of my friends and me decided to climb Bear Mountain in NY State straight up, and we did. I have been building first aid kits ever since for myself and I am 67 years old. John has put a lot of experience and common sense into his book, and written at a level that anyone can understand. With the help of this book you can build a survival kit customized to your own needs, and if you ever have to use it along with some common it may save your life.

    This book is very well written as it breaks down the process of building a survival kit into components and then shows how to combine these into what ever type of kit you need. There are comparisons of products and listings of sources which is really appreciated. You will not be disappointed.
