SAS Survival Guide Handbook

Just the other day after posting about my SAS Survival Handbook, I did a search on the internet and was surprise to find the mini version. I wanted to know if the content is the same as the Handbook which I have left back home in Singapore. When I saw the price that was sold on, I was utterly shock. The mini Guide book was selling for US7.99!!! Without hesitation I placed an order and it took about 3 weeks to arrive.

Why did I get this? I have always wanted to carry such book outdoor. My previous handbook is way too big to carry around unlike this guide book, it is handy and you can carry around like a bible. Honestly I can't remember everything that I had read from my previous handbook and this pocket size is just way to perfect. It will help me to identify fungi and plants which I have very poor recollection and is a great camp book to read at night.

After examining the guide book, I believed it is identical to the handbook except for an article on nuclear disaster that is not mentioned if I remembered correctly.The topic on first aid is enough to cover on daily aspect of life if you examine the content below. Overall I highly recommend to anyone who has interest about survival skills. It will probably safe you or your loved ones when the day comes.
