This brilliant and completely addictive book is perfect for anyone with a yen to taste danger, enjoy the freedom of the outdoors, imagine risk, or even just have fun. Less the Dangerous Book for Boys, it is more the Dangerous Book for Boys Who Never Grew Up. From potentially useful abilities like how to find water anywhere (even in a desert), how to treat shock, heatstroke and frostbite, build a shelter from branches and leaves, and fish with your shirt, to fascinating techniques that are unlikely ever to be needed like how to predict the weather from plants, survive a stampede or wildfire, swim through burning oil, jump from a moving train or cross a fast-moving river, this book details over 300 skills that seem absolutely essential to know whilst you're reading the book. It even details apocalyptic survival solutions in the event of a massive tsunami or nuclear accident, and, if all else fails, describes how to extract a natural painkiller from tree bark. Written in a wry, humorous way, this book could be used as a practical guide, but will invariably have a lot of appeal to armchair adventurers as an entertaining reference. It will make the perfect gift for teenage boys, twentysomething males and overgrown kids of all ages. Full colour throughout, it has photographs, illustrations, diagrams and lists, which make it ideal for opening at random to discover something interesting, as well as reading through from cover to cover.

There’s never been a better time to “be prepared.” Matthew Stein’s comprehensive primer on sustainable living skills—from food and water to shelter and energy to first-aid and crisis-management skills—prepares you to embark on the path toward sustainability. But unlike any other book, Stein not only shows you how to live “green” in seemingly stable times, but to live in the face of potential disasters, lasting days or years, coming in the form of social upheaval, economic meltdown, or environmental catastrophe. When Technology Fails covers the gamut. You’ll learn how to start a fire and keep warm if you’ve been left temporarily homeless, as well as the basics of installing a renewable energy system for your home or business. You’ll learn how to find and sterilize water in the face of utility failure, as well as practical information for dealing with water-quality issues even when the public tap water is still flowing. You’ll learn alternative techniques for healing equally suited to an era of profit-driven malpractice as to situations of social calamity. Each chapter (a survey of the risks to the status quo; supplies and preparation for short- and long-term emergencies; emergency measures for survival; water; food; shelter; clothing; first aid, low-tech medicine, and healing; energy, heat, and power; metalworking; utensils and storage; low-tech chemistry; and engineering, machines, and materials) offers the same approach, describing skills for self-reliance in good times and bad. Fully revised and expanded—the first edition was written pre-9/11 and pre-Katrina, when few Americans took the risk of social disruption seriously—When Technology Fails ends on a positive, proactive note with a new chapter on "Making the Shift to Sustainability," which offers practical suggestions for changing our world on personal, community and global levels.
