Bear grills eat your heart out!

My husband loved this SAS Handbook as he can try and be like Bear Grills!

Great stocking filler

This SAS Handbook is a pocket sized book that's packed with useful information, ranging from edible plants in the wild and how to fend off a shark. This is a great gift for the outdoor types.

Excellent guide

I bought the SAS Handbook as a gift for my brother and it is fantastic. It's a pocket sized book which is very concise. It's split into sections such as food, first aid etc, and is very easy to follow but also detailed with good pictures. It also has good quality glossy pages and a cover. I'm going to buy one for myself!

This SAS Handbook arrived reasonably quickly and appears to be as described. I'd highly recommend this to anyone.

SAS Handbook

This SAS Handbook is brilliant for the adventurer, gives good advice and was bought as an extra for my nephews 21st birthday. I think he appreciated it better than the main part of his birthday gift, so yes I would recommend this book and the first class service I got from I Want One of Those.

Bear Grylls Wanabee!

My partner dresses like he should be waist high in jungle matter with his best mate Bear, so it only seemed right to buy him the SAS Handbook guide to help him in times of need. Packed with useful information for budding adventurers or even just sofa surfers who like to sit and tell the T.V about all their knowledge, when everyone else is just trying to watch the programme!

Who needs Bear Grylls...?

Who needs Bear Grylls, when you have a book like this?! Not me, that's for sure! Full of quirky little facts and diagrams, this is a must for those planning to get lost in the desert, forest, Arctic, or any other seemingly unhospitable place. Its dinky little size means it will easily fit in your pocket, handy for consulting when you're on your adventure. It has kept the other half and various male visitors amused. Let's hope some of the facts actually sink in... A great buy.

Great Wee Book!!

I got the SAS Handbook as my stepdad and I love camping and thought this may be ideal for us. Some of the stuff in it is useless to us but it's a great book, I recommend it to anyone who loves the outdoors.

SAS Handbook

This book (bought as a Christmas present) is an absolute gem! There is so much good information in it for all kinds of situations that I'm afraid it will be joining my other reference books! Now, what else can I buy him for Christmas?!

Survive And Save Yourself

Awesome book, couldn't stop reading every page. Sure am starting my survival kit by the book. How dumb are we when it comes to survival. The contents of this book gave me a huge wake up call. Thank you Lofty for writing this book and thank you IWOOT for selling this book to me. Forever grateful.

I was bought this by a relative as a bit of a joke because I'd just joined the scout's. I didn't think i'd be able to survive off this but it's AMAZING.

18 November 2010 by


Excellent little Gem

At first I bought this as a joke, but once it came in the post I realised that there were lots of brilliant instructions and tips packed into this pocket sized book. Some other reviewers have commented on how much smaller the book was than they expected, but I think that this is excellent as I can take it with me and it will fit in my bag without taking up any space. Indeed, I am going on an expedition later this month and the 'SAS Survival Guide' will definitely be coming with me.

Great Secret Santa Buy!!

This is a fantastic little book - purchased for a 'secret santa' pressie, but obviously couldn't resist having a flip through! Brilliant for anyone who does a lot of travelling - some really useful hints, but also very funny. Tells you all sorts of things that I can't imagine anyone actually needing (such as how to skin and eat a tiger!) - should be a great talking point. Very pleased!!

6 December 2009 by


cool gift

the gift is really good - my brothers' will love it.

All good things come in small packages

The SAS Handbook is amazing. It's got everything in it but I haven't read it all yet as my teenage son has stolen it. An ideal stocking filler for anyone of any age, apart from your granny.
