‘A splendid book, I can’t think of anyone I know who wouldn’t benefit from reading it’ – Marcus Berkmann, Daily Mail’A brilliant, brilliant book’ – Chris Evans, Virgin RadioNow including a new chapter on coping with a pandemic. What is the connection between crawling through a jungle and your ‘to do’ list? What can ejecting out of a stealth bomber teach you about the getting through a pandemic? What can surviving in extreme situations teach us about surviving everyday life?John Hudson, Chief Survival Instructor to the British Military, knows what it takes to survive. Combining first-hand experience with twenty years of studying the choices people have made under the most extreme pressure, How to Survive is a lifetime’s worth of wisdom about how to apply the principles of survival to everyday life.

The cornerstone of military survival (surviving anything) is understanding the relationship between effort, hope and goals – a mindset that can be transposed anytime, anywhere. In How to Survive you will learn how this template for survival can be applied to any situation in your everyday life. Through gripping first-hand accounts of near disaster and survival stories from across the extreme world you will learn that by following these principles you can develop the mindset that will allow you to make better decisions under pressure, which are as equally applicable to first dates and presentations as to climbing Everest and getting lost at sea.

‘When it comes to survival and getting out of trouble, listen to this man. John is the real deal’ – Levison Wood
