The Manual manages to juggle between the fine line of comedic and factual texts. It provides useful and no doubt life saving information that would help you survive in the the wild until the rescue crew arrived. It provides a useful array of different skills for all sorts off situations in numerous different climates ranging from the swamps to the highest mountains and everything in between.

The Manual contains some useful tips that may be relevant to Little Ship Club members such as how to navigate by the stars, how to build a raft and how to get drinkable water at sea. This Manual isn't the kind of survival book given to children which leaves out the gruesome truth.

The book is entertaining and may just hold the key to survival - providing you ignore the lengthy legal disclaimers at both start and end.
