    Thanks for the supports guys. I have a lot of books in my library and I didn't want to reinvent the wheel. You'll like this one as it has a different voice than many manuals. The challenge in writing this one was making it something worthwhile for all ages to pick up and read. Like previously mentioned, if the web goes down or you are somewhere without power, this will be a good source of entertainment as you learn skills or work on improving your ability. We're only 4 weeks away from the release as of tomorrow!

    Very cool Kev, and congrats...my pre-order is in. It's books like these that must be a printed copy; they just don't work well for me on the Kindle. Looking forward to diving into it. Hard copies are always good for the "survival" library! I'll order a second for my son in college...

    I would also like to say that I highly recommend this book. It is packed with so much valuable information and learning material. Very well written and easy to follow and understand. I've known and worked with Kev for many years. He is very skilled and an awesome teacher.

    The video is great. I appreciate your son doing what he does and encourage him to keep up his interest in the great outdoors.

    My book comes out tomorrow everyone. Here we go!

    My copy arrived today. I have only had time to read about a dozen entries, but if the whole book is like what I have read, it is going to be the most useful skills book I own. It not only gives a clear explanation of the skills, but also tells when and where they are most applicable, the situations where they will not work well, plus additional information to help you get the most benefit from the techniques as well as what what will detract from their effectiveness. Looks like it is going to be a great resource!

    Thank you so much for the kind words. Please share your opinion on Amazon if that is where you purchased it. It will help me get the word out there about the book. Enjoy the rest of your read.
