This book is actually one of the few that I always take me whenever I travel or go on a trip. This could potentially save your life and it is really so detailed it is crazy. Having the pages able to survive water is also so useful. Going from every environment, to what plants you can eat, to setting up traps and shelters this has EVERYTHING. I never travel without it beside me, it could save your life one day, so I think its better to be safe than sorry. Even if you aren't that adventurous its cool to read just as info.
