This glossy, large format guide is crammed full of tips for survival in environments from deserts and jungles to mountains and coasts. Separate chapters cover camp craft and navigation, first aid and finding food, and although it’s lavishly illustrated with photos and drawings, there’s a considerable amount of technical detail – from surviving extremes of weather and making fire to navigating via the stars and trapping your tea. The author is a former Royal Marines commando who has climbed the north face of Everest, so he should know what he’s talking about. Andrew McCloy
