For our purposes, we have arbitrarily divided the technical publications into two categories, texts and survival manuals. A survival text is designed primarily to be read in the comfort of your home and provide you with a solid and comprehensive foundation; a textbook, as it were. A survival manual is designed for quick reference in the field. Generally, it is less exhaustive and/or deals primarily with the basics. Some texts can be used as survival manuals, if space permits, but a survival manual is not really a substitute for a good survival text. The book reviews indicate which will serve as a survival manual. And, none of the is a substitute for hands-on training.
Taking inspiration from the experts, it covers a multitude of survival techniques both historical and cultural, from how the SAS approach survival during wartime to how the Bedouin survive with barely any water in the intense desert heat.
Survive Nature - Techniques for Surviving on a Deserted Island
The problem I see with the angle of view about the subject in this post is the narrow definition of beauty. Biologically, a female or a male is considered valuable based on her or his merits to create offspring with higher chance of survival. So, if people believe that a skinny, symmetrical looking girl has a higher chance of producing a child who would have a higher chance of attracting the opposite sex, then there is nothing wrong with the common desire for the appearance and looks.

While the title would suggest a broad focus on sea survival, the primary focal point is actually survival in cold-water environments. Since this tends to be the environment that is most immediately dangerous for sea survivors, and technically an environment that includes the majority of the world's large bodies of water, it is worthy of the attention. However, buyers should not expect this text to cover other areas of the subject in near the same detail. Golden and Tipton (both British) are two of the world's leading authorities on cold water survival and the physiological effects of cold on the human body. This book incorporates their years of research and scholarly publications into a text that can be read and understood by the non-academic.

Waterproof survival manuals are pretty rare, despite how much sense it makes for them to be resistant to the most common enemy of the written word in a survival circumstance.
