This book is fun and full of fascinating things. Greenbank refers to this as "telegraph" style. I began reading it in New York City and finished it in the Scottish Highlands. In both places there was lots of information here to equip me in the case of emergency. In fact it's hard to think of any place or eventuality which this book doesn't cover. Or maybe the reader was secretly the author of a competitive book. Whatever it may be, ignore it. Tony Greenbank is real. Whether on land or at sea, in the city or in the wilderness, chances are the problems you could face are covered in this book. The chapters are divided into different Ails such as, Too Lonely, Too Hot, Too Dark, and Too Thirsty.

The one for coping with holiday catastrophes is "The Book of Survival: The Original Guide to Staying Alive in the City, the Suburbs & the Wild Lands Beyond," by a British mountaineer and former Outward Bound instructor named Anthony Greenbank. The book is arranged by category, with chapter headings such as "Too Wet," "Too Cold," and "Too High," and is intended to be read straight through, but, should the reader need a relevant refresher, the index is thorough and threat-specific: "Clothing catches fire, when," "Coconuts, reaching," "Cougars.

This book was hyped in the 1969 "Last whole Earth Catalog" It has remained a classic since. Although the content is laid out in more of a situational first, then outline addressing salient points for survival, The information is basically valid. Illustrations other than years old drawings would be good.

One thing I did notice after a while, was the fact that on some pages he uses several textual enhancements to draw your attention. The problem being you don't really know where to look! Bold? Italic? Different size print? It just makes for confusion if read in an emergent situation.

I don't know if Anthony Greenback is alive or planning on any revision of this work. He is off to a good start with the information he has included, BUT. . the layout needs improvement.

This is a holistic, albeit somewhat sparse book that covers all aspects of self-defense and survival. That's a broad statement but it reall does cover everything from becoming lost in the woods to surviving a riot to defending against a physical attack to surviving in a blazing desert or frosty snowfield to surviving an automobile accident to avoiding child abductions and more. In the wake of 9/11, this new edition adds information about bio terror, dirty bombs and even escaping from high-rise towers. Even if you own a previous edition the new features are well worth buying a newer copy.

Contents are grouped into chapters: Too Lonely, Too Crowded, Too Dry, Too Wet, Too Bright, Too Dark, Too Cold, Too Hot, Too Low, Too High, Too Fast, Too Slow, Too Full, and Too Empty. It's mnemonically written for easy memory retention. Because it covers so many subjects each one gets only a few short paragraphs at most yet these cover all the critical survival aspects of every scenario. I highly recommend reading this book though I also highly recommend purchasing complementary texts to flesh out areas which most affect you and your individual situation. Despite the outstanding content I just don't feel that it is complete enough all by itself. Strongly recommended regardless.

note that the Anthony Greenbank paperback has 267 pages (for my pre-Sept 11 revised edition), not the 224 Amazon attributes to it.
Ever since I started selling books on survival, I have had requests from people asking for Anthony Greenbank's book, long out of print, The Book Of Survival.
Well, it's back. This new revised edition (revised again post-Sept.11) contains new tips on BASIC TERROR TACTICS SURVIVAL, CHEMICAL WEAPONS, BIOLOGICAL WEAPONS which have added since the attacks on New York and Washington.
The book contains a wealth of common sense advice - and quite a few tips that seem to come from left field, but make sense - and has some good illustrations which make ground-to-air communications, for instance, very easy to understand.
Chapters are: too lonely; too crowded; too dry; too wet; too bright; too dark; too cold; too hot; too low; too high; too fast; too slow; too full; too empty - all are written using a technique called mnemonics, which is supposed to help the reader retain or recall what has been read.
What stopped this book getting 5 stars though, is the writing, which I found a little 'odd' in parts. At the very beginning of the book I was put off by such statements as, "flaming electric blanket murders family"... an inanimate object 'murdering'??? I know it's not much, but it grated. At various stages I found myself wondering whether the book had been badly translated into english!
That aside, the book is worth a look. It covers every contingency imaginable and it does contain some great ideas that will help you stay out of, or get out of trouble.

This book, has the distinction of being the best-organized, most comprehensive survival book ever written. Concise, calm, logical, it addresses nearly every situation that deviates from the norm, categorized in a very easy-to-find method: Too Hot, Too Cold, Too Wet, Too Lonely, etc. The shame of it is that the book is no longer published, but while many *kinds* of survival texts are published, this is the only one that you need.

Following the advice in this book, which I read years ago when it first came out, saved my life. The book is well-organized for quick recall in an emergency: sections are titled "too fast" (car crash, plane crash, etc.), "too dry" (desert), etc. That's what you're thinking when you're in trouble!
This book is filled with Awesome information you never know when you'll need. Everyone is faced with a Crazy situation at some point, this book covers just about every predicament a person could Possibly get into. Whether on land or at sea, in the city or in the wilderness, chances are the problems you could face are covered in this book. The chapters are divided into different Ails such as, Too Lonely, Too Hot, Too Dark, and Too Thirsty. This makes it easy to find the solution to your crisis in no time. Two Thumbs Up!
