The Special Air Service operates worldwide, often in remote and hostile locations where nature poses as much of a hazard as any enemy. In order to stay alive and complete their missions, SAS personnel are rigorously trained in the art of survival. This book is based on SAS training and techniques. This general survival guide contains detailed information on basic survival in any situation, including techniques of shelter construction, sourcing water, first aid, fire making, food hunting, signalling, navigation and equipment. Drawing on practical, first-hand knowledge, the entries are arranged in order of survival priority, with photographs, cutaway drawings and diagrams. Specially designed to fit in a rucksack or pocket, this book offers a potentially life-saving companion for any outdoor activity.

The section on map navigation isn't detailed enough to be of any real use to anyone (nor does it contain much on using compass or GPS in desert terrain). Nor is there much about common desert dangers such as sandstorms, snakes, heat illness, hypo-natremia, etc. What there is includes a lot of regurgitated advice from other SAS books on animal traps and fishing, not very applicable to arid desert. I can't recommend this book for anyone attempting an education in desert survival skills.
Another favorite topic were the chapters on medical care and finding things to use as medicine. I'm in the medical field so I'm into that kind of stuff. I liked it so well, I sent one to my Dad who is going up to the boundary waters this spring (The Essential Survival Guide) and this one (Desert Survival) to my son in law who's over there right now. They both have much info that is applicable in any setting but the special editions also have additional info for specific climates.
I say it's short and sweet because it is just the bare facts. Instructions on how to survive and be rescued: what you need to do and how to do it. I felt it was realistic in it's explanations. The book is small, thin and narrow but sturdily constructed so it is a guide that will stand up to some abuse; a practical hand book.
is simple and put forward in terms anyone would be able to
understand. How to live on little, when your life is in peril. This book is worthy of any survival bookshelf, unless one were
a native to the jungle regions, or already a master at jungle survival.
A 65 year old thats done it, seen it, been it.
