John "Lofty" Wiseman is the author of the bestselling SAS Survival Handbook, the definitive guide to survival in the wild from Britain's Special Air Service. Now he has compiled a complete guide to survival in the urban jungle. Every year in America there are thousands of fatal accidents in the home—more than on the roads, and many more than in the great outdoors. Fire, electricity, water, gas, sharp knives, poisons, chemicals—these valuable tools can quickly become dangerous weapons when not treated with proper respect and understanding. Add to these the risks of travel, terrorism, muggings, rape, tsunamis, and earthquakes. We are constantly reminded that the world is a dangerous place. Wiseman shows readers how to think realistically and practically about these perils in order to avoid them, whether they are at home, on the street, in school, or in transit. From self-defense techniques to home security systems to coping with natural disasters, this book will teach readers to recognize risks, make quick decisions, and live confidently in the modern urban world.

There's a lot of misconceptions out there about how urban survival and wilderness survival, camping do or do not fit together. Arguments range from saying wilderness survival skills and camping can help in urban survival situations to saying all you that's needed for long-term urban survival is your survival or camping gear. The truth does, however, lie in between.Regardless you level of experience or the amount of skill, this guide has some great stuff to share about outdoor and urban survival. In both urban and wilderness survival, the most crucial and common factor that determine whether you'll succeed or fail lies in your mindset. The fundamentals of survival are common to urban and wilderness scenarios: shelter, food, security, medical, water, and fire. However there some notable differences. In wilderness or outdoor survival scenarios, it will normally be you or group of people trying to survive off from the land or from what you've been able to carry along. In other words, you can think of a wilderness survival scenario as you vs. the world. A typical character you can identify such situations with is John Rambo where it's basically him vs. the world. Quite often, wilderness survival scenarios take place because there isn't anyone else around. Long-term urban survival, on the other hand, is a totally different situation to this regard. There will be people around you. After being able to keep yourself under control, a crucial factor that will determine your long-term urban survival will be how well you can interact with different people. Are you able to forge relationships and friends? Are you willing to exchange services and or goods with other people? Can you achieve this in such a way that you'll be able to get good deals and still maintain good relationships with those other people in the future? Have your actions been in such a way that people will look for you when they need help? These are some vital attributes and things to consider when looking to survive in an urban setup. Let's get started!

The lights go out, the power shuts off, cars crash, and all electronic devices cease to work. In the blink of an eye, the world has gone dark and cold. This is what will happen as a result of an EMP attack on the United States. We will have been officially thrown back to the Stone Ages, and things could remain that way for ten years. During that time, over 90% of the population will die from starvation, dehydration, disease, murder, and suicide. The only question is: are you prepared? That's why I decided to write a series of in-depth books that discuss the specifics on how to get prepared for an EMP attack like I've just described. The purpose behind these books is to help educate people who are new to disaster preparedness, people such as yourself, on concepts you can easily apply in your own life so you can become more prepared for EMP attacks and other disaster. For the next book in the EMP Attack Survival Guide Series, we will be discussing the topic of urban survival during an EMP Attack. Specifically, since urban survival is such a broad subject, this will be the first book in a three book miniseries of EMP Attack Urban Survival Books. In this book, we will cover the following topics on urban survival: - Basic Urban Survival Skills - Security Options - Protecting Your Home - Alternate Heat and Light Sources - Caring For Your Pets - Stockpiling An Emergency Pantry By the end of this book, you will have gained much more important knowledge on what it takes to survive an EMP attack in an urban setting.
