If you're living in a city, check out a book called "Ragnar's Urban Survival" by Ragnar Benson. This covers ALL survival aspects. I've read a lot of survival books......and nothing else comes close to this one. This is the one book I would not want to be without. His basic survival philosophy makes sense, and he covers all the bases. This guy has actual experience on the subject. He's not just writing about how he "thinks" things will be. He's lived thru it.....and, also, has interviewed survivors from war-torn areas of the world where society collapsed.

This is real nuts-and-bolts practical info you can use. He tells you which weapons are absolute necessities for defense....and what is not worth having. Extensive info on obtaining water and foods. What to store and how to store it. Alternative sources of energy. A very helpful section on trading and barter.....what to stockpile for barter and what won't be good for trading.....based on his own personal experience and that of others who lived thru civil war in other countries. And lots more.

Every aspect of survival you can think of is described in this book.

I've got to echo the SAS survival handbook. I have an older one with a yellow cover, but I'm guessing the pictures of the other ones are just updated versions with new covers and essentially identical. I read through it about once or twice a month to keep the info fresh in my mind. Reading through these books never gets old.
