I keep 3 books in my survival kit.
First of all the SAS Survival Guide covers all subjects but i find it doesnt go into enough detail on important specifics. Very useful in a tactical
situation, i.e. Bear Grylls style but these situations are very rare and if you have your wits about you, you will never let yourself get into these
Secondly I have the Ray Mears Outdoor Survival Handbook which is more centered around bushcraft but in a 'live off the land' survival aspect. This
book gets into the nitty gritty of survival and just as important as the skill and knowledge, the mental aspects of survival and teaches some very
valuable lessons in respect for the land and creatures around you.
Thirdly I keep my Food For Free pocket book with me at all times, this little beauty is no bigger than a box of matches but contains every edible
plant and fungi you can imagine, with pictures, descriptions, all their uses, just everything you need to know about any edible plant. This book is
more likely to save your life than any survival guide out there.
