As per most survivally-type books it details the pretty standard techniques used to procure water, fire, shelter, food, etc. Where this one differs is the exploration of the mindset required and the rationale for WHY things are done in a certain way, at a certain time and in a certain order. These are backed up by Bob Cooper's wealth of personal experiences which are detailed in the first part of the book.
The book also includes a section on the survival kit, using Bob's own Bob Cooper outback survival kit as an example. I have the military version of the kit and can attest to its well-thought-out nature and the usefulness of the items. It gives a great psychological boost.
In all, Bob Cooper's "Outback Survival" is a great, commonsense guide to survival in Australian (or other hot/dry) conditions. Destined to become a classic of the genre and well worth the pittance you paid for it.
It covers the basic first aid treatment for snake & spider bites, ocean nasties and many more. Good reference tips on what you should carry in your own survival kit, I've put mine together for my next overseas trip.. just in case :)
He's not a flashy TV survivalist, he's genuine with a dry wit
He's a good man.
