"Essentials of Sea Survival" takes you beyond the simple explanations and statements of the scores of survival hand-or guide - books. Especially if you are interested in historical and scientific background to the now widely acknowledged sea-survival-procedures, this is the work you are looking for.
It took me quite some time digging through the sources of guide-books and instruction manuals, until I came across this satisfyingly comprehensive and thoroughly researched publication.

If you always wanted to know more about why excactly modern sea-survival-procedures have become standards, and how reliable commonly used estimates are, this is your book.

HASH(0x9d1e763c) von 5 Sternen All the meat and none of the fat 16. September 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I've read alot of wilderness, rescue, survival and outdoor medicine books in my life and have found only a select few that I keep coming back to, and this is one of them. The one of the best water survival books I have ever come across. The book is full of useful information actually backed by the research with a rundown of real accounts and what the people did right or wrong. At the end of each chapter it contains a list of the main points you don't want to forget. If you live near water (any water), enjoy watersports or plan on finally taking the family sailboat to some hidden location, don't leave without reading this book !

Von The Seive - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I would not go to sea without the knowledge presented in this book. I have sailed at sea, raced sailboats inland and at sea, have experienced weather at sea. With knowledge of the conditions discussed, everything changes in your thinking about sailing, buying or designing and building marine vessels of any size, dwt, type, engine or wind powered, or shipping out aboard a cruise ship. Adventure on the sea can test the mind of the voyager in the most interesting and complex ways. In this book, you will find many of the possibilities, conditions, and opportunities to adapt for survival when you are called upon to do so. I stick my guns on this read - if you care about yourself, loved ones, and others, without this thought provoking adventure into the wild - you might "lose your head" when you need it the most, and then your life. Treat yourself and your "family/crowd/clan/comradeship/group...) to an awakening of insight into previously unencountered possibilities that lie within reach of you when you venture to the horizon or beyond. Read this and return from your adventure with understanding, respect, awe and excitement of our universal mother "nature" (at sea). The Sieve

I have been on or around the sea all my life. This book has changed everything I thought about surviving a disaster and appreciating what people, who get into emergency situations, must face. This is a must to read for a boatie - whatever you thought, it was probably wrong

HASH(0x9d1e7c60) von 5 Sternen Expertly written, comprehensive - and thrilling! 20. September 2010
Von Ulla Vollan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
With all its anecdotal and historical references this book reads like a thriller! Yet, it is packed with accurate, pertinent physiology, bringing to real life what regular textbooks can barely hope to teach from the comfort of a clean, warm, dry room. This book is very fluently written, there is plenty to learn for layman and expert alike. Several times, I realized that what I learned while reading may prove lifesaving if my own life will ever be put to the survival test. One of the most valuable assets of this book is how it re-evaluates old dogmas and official inquiry conclusions based on new knowledge and research in physiology. As an Anesthesiologist working in the prehospital setting in Arctic Norway (Norwegian Search-and-Rescue helicopter), I find this book tremendously valuable and recommend it warmly!
