I'd going to answer in two posts here, this one will link stuff to websites or amazon for physical books. The other will be more discussion based. (e.g. this is just a raw data dump.)

I have used some google foo and I'm willing to post links, note that many of these will overlap (that is they have the same free PDFs or HTML pages etc.) Others are a bit further out there, e.g. magnetic pole reversal etc.

You get the point though people compiled whatever they though the world might need after aliens, the clintons took your guns, or trump and putin nuke everybody, global warming, plague, etc. Since it takes a massive amount of work to put these together and most people are not dedicated enough to do so, they all have the flavor of whatever the person building them thought was most important.

Here is a list, use from it what you can. Including in the list are things like RACHEL, hardware hotspot for wifi that any computer can connect to, like a library box or pirate box. Many of these resources are focused on and in use in 3^rd world nations. things like the one laptop per child might be a perfect resource to allow some technology designed cheaply but ruggedly to have to access this stuff.

SAS Survival Guide: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/0061992860/

I've admittedly only used the iPod App, but I'd recommend it on that alone and I'm led to believe the book is just as good if not better.

u/raptorman3054 · 8 pointsr/AskReddit

The SAS Survival Handbook

More useful than you'll ever realize.

u/drake42pi · 7 pointsr/booksuggestions

I know they're pretty generic, but if you haven't read them, try out Lord of the Flies, Life of Pi, or Robinson Crusoe.

Additionally, if you find technique intriguing, look for a copy of SAS Survival Handbook

u/docb30tn · 7 pointsr/preppers

Fierce_Fox is right. FM manuals such as FM-217-76 Survival.....may be somewhat outdated but the information is reliable.
As a Medic/EMT my prepping focuses on my skill set with everything else falling close in line. I have a lot of information in digital format; both on USB and a small external drive. I have a small tablet that is in my BoB for reading documents and such.
At a minimum, here are my suggestions:

The last one is more humor but it does have many great points and ideas.
A library that covered everything would be very heavy and take up a bit of space. For the minimum, at least 1-2 books on everything one will need to survive will still be a lot. These books should be read, reread, and read again. We can't memorize everything, but having this to go back on when needed is a great addition. There's tons of information online and downloadable for free.
Depending on one's skill set, then they may not need as much. Teach others in a group is a must. Can't have one person be the ONLY one who can do 'this' skill. IMO, research should always be the first step. So much information out there and it's free.

u/isperfectlycromulent · 6 pointsr/preppers

I'd say the SAS Survival Guide book is a good one to have. This one is small enough to fit in a pocket too.

u/GeneralMalaiseRB · 6 pointsr/preppers

Here's a few of mine that I really like. I have way more than these, but I'm not sure I'd recommend all of them, per se. Anyhow, should give you some ideas.

Security - Talks about small unit tactics with small arms and so forth.

Butchering and cooking wild game - If you hope to hunt for food, you gotta know what to do with it after shooting it.

SAS Survival Guide - Really tiny dimensions that make this easy to toss in my BOB.

Composting - If you plan to garden, you're gonna need to compost. I also have various gardening books such as container gardening, organic gardening, gardening according to the Mormons, etc. The Mormons have a lot of great homesteading-oriented books. Here's one called The Forgotten Skills of Self-Sufficiency Used by the Mormon Pioneers


Bushcraft - Never hurts to learn some knots and be able to make simple things out of natural materials.

Organization and Planning - I'm reading this one now. Touches on a lot of areas of things to think about that you gotta plan for. A good amount of stuff I hadn't really thought about before.

u/chrono13 · 3 pointsr/collapse

One book? I don't think you'll find that all in one book. Some to consider:

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/EDC

Here you go.

Left Side: Thin sharpie, small single blade pocket knife, gel pen, nail file, lighter, dental floss, burt's bees chapstick, tweezers, two mini clif bars, small blade/can opener/screw driver, carabiner tool included with the leatherman sidekick

Right Side: toothbrush (cut off about 1/3 to fit, use for cleaning things), bandana, leatherman sidekick, altoids first aid kit, small lighter, 5 in 1 whistle (inside is a bunch of generic box matches with the striker panel included that I took off the box and a cotton ball, camping tool

Outside (goes in right zipper pocket): 12 feet paracord, plastic bag of bandages and qtips, firesteel

SAS pocket survival manual

Also (not pictured): scarf (doubles as a blanket) and boonie hat I found at walmart for $7 (looks similar to this), 4 pack of AAA batteries (in outside flap of maxpedition fatty)

u/sandhouse · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon
u/LiquidCoax · 2 pointsr/Survival

That's a great book. I've had it for years too. Has a lot of great LandNav and climate survival info.

For anyone interested (Only $8):

Hell this thing has a little bit about everything, including surviving sharks.

u/hkp2000 · 2 pointsr/Survival

I forgot to add this book. It's tiny enough to pack easily and got me out of the sticks a few times. It also makes for a fun lecture to pass some time.

u/Odyessus56 · 2 pointsr/Survival

What do people think of the survival tin as suggested by Lofty? https://www.amazon.com/SAS-Survival-Guide-Collins-Gem/dp/0061992860

u/MorphaKnight · 1 pointr/AskReddit

I'm in the process of buying it but perhaps he'd like the SAS Survival Handbook There's a regular large paperback version as well as small pocket edition for on the go. It's perfect for those interested in hiking, camping and other outdoor adventures in the wilderness.

u/idoescompooters · 1 pointr/hiking

I've got the best one. This. Mine came in the mail today. It's by far the #1 survival book.

u/mk72206 · 1 pointr/AskReddit
u/explosivo563 · 1 pointr/Survival

The SAS survival handbook has a good food section. Essential book if you don't already have it.
