Just read page 209, and you've saved yourself $16.95 and the time spent reading it... OR... Watch your core temp, adequate water, stay dry, tell people where you are going, check your transportation, take a survival kit, know how to signal for rescue, don't take unnecessary chances, rest. DONE.

    I was looking for a book on "what to do" and I think the book focuses more on "why to do it". It seems less about how to stay alive than about all of the ways that you could die. While those things seem like they'd be the same, they're not. Also, I found the author's attempt at humor to be a bit over the top and distracting. Good material, but could have been presented in a much more appealing and realistic manner. I was looking for a book on "what to do" and I think the book focuses more on "why to do it".

    I am not an avid outdoorsman with a lot of experience, but I like going outside and I like knowing what to do if I get myself in trouble.

So, I enjoyed this book because it was practical, and it gave a lot of advice that didn't involve buying fancy gear or turning yourself into a Navy SEAL. Cody Lundin spends a good amount of time talking about how to dress for weather and what to do when you are caught, I have used his cold weather advice this year, when I went cross country skiing and found myself quite comfortable as a result. I have not practiced building fires or some of the other skills, but if I get the opportunity, I probably will. The book has several cartoons and some "wacky" presentation at points, but I enjoyed it because I have read other books of this type that take themselves way too seriously and make survival skills seem next to impossible for the average person to develop. I will also say, the good thing about Cody Lundin's book is that he denies being the final word and encourages you to think things through and experiment for yourself. This book would be a good read for people who like outdoor activities, who want to know more about outdoor survival skills, and for armchair adventurers who like to know how things can be done.

    This is an overview or tip guide for outdoor survival. For the most part it is fairly easy to read.

For instance: The start of the book talks about just how most people end up in survival situations, and mistakes they made: not bringing water, not telling friends where they would be, not wearing proper clothing, not signalling, wandering from paths, etc. Also the typical person or group who ends up in a survival situation: an under-equipped inexperienced day-hiker The middle section of the book describes how to stay warm when the weather is cold, visa versa in warm weather, always stay dry, and stay hydrated. A lot of good detail here. If you can manage to regulate your tempature and drink water in a survival situation, you can survive for months. It's not about food, it's about hydration! The end area of the book describes how to make a survival bag, or "bug out bag". Focus is given to things such as being able to start a fire several different ways, using items that have very little weight (the author carries something under 4lbs of gear!!!), and always using multi-purpose items. If I was going to find fault in the book, it would be the scientifics of hydration and dehyrdation get boring for a few pages. That's it though. Overall very happy, and heck I'd even consider packing the book in a bug out bag. Makes me wonder if that's why the book has an illustration of the book in the back pocket of jeans...

    I love this book. Well written, very useful info when you are out there and things start to fall into the danger zone. I ended up buying an electronic copy and have it on my iPod Touch to refer to whenever I like. The line drawings of the " characters" are sort of strange, but I think they work in driving the point home. Fear and confusion are the challenges out there. If you have some sort of overall plan, you have a chance. I love this book. Well written, very useful info when you are out there and things start to fall into the danger zone.

    This book was a lot of fun to read as well as being super informative. I wish he'd been a little more specific about the brands of gear he prefers. I realize he left it out so he wouldn't appear biased or influence buying but as a novice I would have appreciated the recommendation.

He’s the one who looks like a hippie and is always barefoot. 98.6 is a book designed to prepare readers for a wilderness survival situation. To be clear, this book isn’t about going out for a six week trek. It’s about going out for a day hike and finding your foot stuck in a bear trap or having your jeep washed away in flashflood. It’s about how to stay alive for as much as a few days while search and rescue teams are looking for you (and how to make sure they do look for you.) As the title suggests, Lundin focuses on the issue of maintaining the body’s core temperature as the key to short-term survival, and special attention is given to the subjects of hypo- and hyperthermia. Besides dressing appropriately, maintaining core temperature involves requirements such as hydration that may not seem relevant at first blush. The heart of the message is that one has to plan for the worst even on apparently mundane treks or drives into the backwoods. Lundin hammers home the importance of letting others know where one is going and by when one will return. However, the bulk of the space is devoted to suggestions about what to pack in your survival kit. Lundin takes a light-hearted tone while talking about the dire nature of survival in the wild. Many of the graphics are quirky, caricaturesque line drawings (there are also photos--mostly towards the rear of the book in the discussion of gear and kits.) His writing style is conversational—which is to say that he writes like he talks. While this may induce rage in English teachers, I find it’s only problematic if it leads to misunderstandings. (i.e. In conversation there are fewer opportunities for misunderstanding because there is non-verbal communication and the potential for feedback.) Having said that, I can’t recall any cases in which meaning was unclear, so either Lundin is conscientious about this issue, or his editor did a good job of maintaining his style without losing clarity. The conversational tone involves a lot of analogies and metaphors that are sometimes humorous but sometimes over-the-top. Lundin’s advice runs toward the pragmatic and the frugal. Survival gadgetry and gear is a huge industry, and Lundin’s guide helps a budget-weary amateur outdoorsman know where it’s worth spending a little extra and where it’s likely to be a waste of money. (In some cases, spending more money will leave one worse off in more areas than the pocket-book.) Despite his folksy tone, it’s clear that Lundin is no stranger to science. One thing that one will get in his guide that’s uncommon in others is scientific explanations--in lay terms--of why some methods or equipment will or won’t work. This ranges from the physics of space blankets to the psychology of fear to the chemistry of nutrition. Another strength of this guide is that it gives due attention to the crucial nature of the mind in survival. There are a few early chapters devoted to this. Many guides might give a paragraph to the subject before plowing into survival methods. The problem is that some people may die overwhelmed and unable to keep all that knowledge straight. Tips about keeping one’s head seem worth the space. In addition to the use of humor and anecdotes, there is a clear attempt to make the information memorable. Lundin uses mnemonic devices to help people ingrain information, and frequently recaps important points. He also has a “Cliff Notes” version at the back of the book that condenses his message down into a few pages. If you like to spend time outdoors, I’d recommend you pick up this book. Of course, reading a book is not going to keep you alive, you have to practice with the gear you assemble, but the book is an important first step.

    The humor and fluff was kinda over the top and a little distracting at times but there was still a ton of useful information in this book. I’ve read several books and articles on survival and I still learned new things here. He takes it down to the ultra basic but also includes relative info on using current technology. It’s not perfect and might not be to some readers preference in style/delivery but it still delivers a lot of good common sense and survival techniques. Worth the read.

    I borrowed a copy of this book from a friend whose son was a bit disturbed by the curse word in the title. So they took a sharpie marker and edited it such that it read "The Art of Keeping You Alive". I found that pretty entertaining.

This book felt more comprehensive than most in terms of covering a variety of landscapes, situations, tools needed, psychology, etc. What I enjoyed most about reading this book was the fact that Lundin seems to know how to have a good time when writing about something that could otherwise come across as a bit dry. He filled this book with great cartoons to illustrate points and had some great humor throughout. Most of the survival training I've been exposed to has come more from military schools of thought along with some Native American teachings. This was the first time I'd studied Aboriginal techniques. Though they share a lot in common with Native American traditions I found a lot of unique information in this approach as well. I appreciated the way the book was organized in to concrete and informative chapters, I liked the lists throughout, and I loved the practical hands-on tools and tips. All in all a fantastic read!

This book comes in down to two sections. How your body reacts to heat, cold, dehydration, the lack of salt, and so on. The stages your body goes through, the symptoms, the causes, and ways to avoid problems. Then it covers the essential items you need to carry to survive, as the author sees it. Many books, including my beloved army field manual covers "how". How to make a shelter, catch a fish, identify plants you can eat. This book covers "why". Why your body reacts as it does to to much heat, to little water, to much cold. What those symptoms mean for your immediate and future survival. Why you should carry specific types of items. Very little on how you should use them. It's a very important side of the process of survival to consider that affects your day to day life. Heat stroke and water deprivation are problems for you sitting around your back yard, on the job site, and so on. These are things you need to understand and be able to handle, no matter where in the world you are, and what supplies you have on hand.

    I think this is a book for urbanites who take a wrong turn on a dirt road and drive down it too far then get stuck. This is not for people who routinely camp out.

    He lives a very extreme version of what most readers are interested in, so he could probably share a ton more than he does, but the author here boils it down a few top priorities. this could be a detriment based on what you're looking for in a book, but he makes it accessible to low skill outdoorsman.

    Although a little cheezy at times, this is a great book for well, keeping your ass alive. After watching countless survivor type shows it is amazing the number of people who have no clue as to how to survive outdoors. And i'm sure they must have done some research on it before hand. If they can't succeed what chance does the average day tripper person have? This is must reading before engaging in outdoor activities. Also recommened is Cody's other book "When all hell breaks loose" Although a little cheezy at times, this is a great book for well, keeping your ass alive.

    This book has a very scatter-shot approach to its subject. If you have seen Cody Lundin on "Dual Survival" you will understand. The book delves into the psychology of survival and has a couple chapters on Cody's personal survival kit. These are mildly interesting and okay to read. Where this book really shines is right in the middle; Chapters 8-10 deeply cover thermo-regulation and hydration. These three chapters are worth the price of admission and everything else is gravy.

This book mainly covers: prevention and dangers of hypothermia and hyperthermia, how to construct a survival kit, and short term (3 day) survival.

    This book was a quick, easy read. I'd give it five stars for content and information since Cody Lundin is very knowledgeable and experienced in primitive skills and survival. But the book's bizarre, cartoonish illustrations were very distracting and it seemed that the information in the book could have been organized better. Cody's survival gear list is perfect, though. I do recommend reading this book if you can get past the cartoons and Cody's conversational method of writing. This book was a quick, easy read.

    This was a good book on mindset, and putting together a 10 essentials kit. What he uses and why. He also places importance on knowing how to use this stuff, which I completely agree with.

    Very straight-forward and helpful. He is a little crazy, but this is a great book about putting together a simple survival kit that will really work.

    An entertaining, practical guide to survival and rescue. Well-documented and thorough without being academic, and funny enough to keep everyone reading more. A little too casual in spots in terms of language and humor, but he gets his point across, and it made an impact on how I think about packing for hikes, camping, etc.

    This is a very useful book to have in your library and apart of your survival kit. There are a couple of things that I would disagree with but overall I would take note of what Cody Lundin has to say, he is the expert after all. I would recommend everyone to read this book to further your understanding of wilderness survival methods.

    Very interesting. I actually chipped away at this a little at a time over a 16 month period. I found it very useful and plan on carrying this book with me anytime I'll be going out. I like the style he wrote the book in - kind of like he's speaking directly to you. It's almost like McGyver in the woods. I already bought three copies of this book to give to relatives who go outdoors a lot. Very interesting. I actually chipped away at this a little at a time over a 16 month period.
