    "Educational reading" The title of the book describes it quite perfectly and I think it's ingenious. It's consists of a lot of common sense stuff but it also has a lot of information that I've never thought of or seen before and anyway the real interesting part is the way it's put together. The first section is about wilderness survival and includes all type of useful info on short term stays outdoors. Vegans beware (I'm including myself) there is information on hunting here which I think is totally appropriate for the subject matter. The second section is self defense and it first talks about ways to avoid conflict and then moves into violent tactics and onto use of weapons getting more cautionary the entire time. I'm afraid this section might upset some pacifists but I think it's pretty realistic in talking about touchy subjects like guns. The third section is about privacy and is really intense. But as usual this includes a lot of amazing and detailed information. I... More > especially liked the clearly spelled out laws in dealing with police (even though in this day in age privacy laws don't count for that much). I really enjoyed this book I would recommend it for anyone trying to evade or who has any interest in any of this.< Less

    "It's a hot mess with a misleading title" "Shadowliving’s main strength lies in its defense by invisibility." "The shelter should be near a good signaling site," so if this is shadowliving, who are you trying to signal?? "Likewise, I’ve omitted survival skills used in extreme climates like the arctic, the jungle, the desert, or at sea." but the author mentions building snow trenches and caves? What environment are you suggesting survival in? No mention of dealing with rain. "The main three ingredients for any fire are tinder, kindling, and fuel." fuel, heat and oxygen maybe? tinder and kindling are fuel are they not? "A very wise man once said 90 percent of self-defense is not being in stupid places, doing stupid things, or being around stupid people" BUT the author mentions "Better yet, go to a ‘rough’ neighborhood if you want to see all four in action. Observe everyone’s demeanor and emotional states then try... More > thinking like a mugger or a rapist." how is that not being in a stupid place and doing a stupid thing? "Years ago I published a zine called “Angel of Death” which documented the astonishing methods a human’s life could be taken." "Before getting a gun-do some serious soul searching because even though a firearm is a great tool for protection not everyone should get a gun." mixed messages within.... "Avoid .22, .25, and .32 calibers, as they don’t have enough stopping power." Hasn't the .22 been used in the taking of more lives than any other caliber? Wouldn't they give you an opportunity to escape as well? The improvised weapon section borders on the ludicrous. All this and by page 50, the author is telling you how to maintain a low profile after mentioning multiple ways to fight and signal for help. I gave it 2 stars because it seems the author has at least read about some of the topics he discusses, because I've seen much of the same information from other sources, only the other sources were more in depth than this glancing collage of topics. Unless a revision of this comes out or the author breaks down this collage into better managed parts, I would say give this one a pass.< Less
