Just got the new book in the 'Build the Perfect Bug Out' series by Creek Stewart. As soon as I saw this on Amazon's pre-order, I knew it was a must have. Even though I have stuff by Jeager, Nesmuk, Kochanski, and Canterbury as well as numerous tomes on country and pioneer living, this is one I had to have. Let's be honest; much in survival and preparation books is redundant, as you can talk about how to boil water only so many different ways, But Creek has proven time and time again that a flexible mind is the most important survival skill.
In his new book Build the Perfect Bug Out Survival Skills, he blends urban and wilderness skills is such a clever and new way, it makes the book immediately valuable for the urban reader. For instance, he has a great idea for using a 55 gal drum as a fire reflector. Often times, you can find a drum torn up or in bad shape.

Just received this book today...have read about a fourth of it so far. What a great book. Contains a ton of actionable survival info. I have been studying / practicing survival skills for a while and was pleased to find a number of techniques, ideas and skills that were new to me. Highly recommend...well worth the price. BTW...add Dave Canterbury's BUSHCRAFT 101 book for a one, two knockout punch to your acquired survival skills. This will give you plenty to work on if you put the information to practice.
This is an outstanding survival book by a survivalist with an unconventional take on survival. Stewart has carved a niche for himself with an unusual combination of rural and urban survival skills not presented by the average survival book.
And, unlike a other survival books that try to throw in everything but the kitchen sink and attempt to be all things to all people, Stewart has only discussed what he feels is the most important elements to surviving in both the bush, and in an urban survival situation.
While the book touches on a number of aspects of survival, some of them unconventional, such as using a couple of cinder blocks in an urban environment as a backstop to a fire to radiate heat, the main emphasis of this book is as a Bug Out scenario.
So, for example if you want a survival book to discuss navigation and the use of a compass, you will not find it here.
Nor, for example does he touch upon the most important part of a bug out...
