Dr. Chris McNab is the author of "Endurance Techniques (SAS Training Manual)"; "Elite Forces Survival Guides"; "How to Pass the SAS Selection Course"; "Martial Arts for Special Forces"; and "Urban Survival".From School Library Journal:
Grades 5-8--This poorly written and disorganized title is written in second person, and the author puts readers in the "you are there" position. He assumes that these "survivors" of disasters at sea have a properly equipped life raft and some knowledge of navigation. The first chapter presents the history of the SEALs. This is overbalanced by a discussion of some of their later failures and having to be rescued by the Marines. The concept of the SEALs' training is merely a vehicle to present maritime survival techniques. Some examples of the sometimes silly and confusing text include a suggestion that it is a good idea to exercise while sitting in the raft. Though logical in concept, the instructions recommend that this be done by lifting one's legs "off the ground" for short periods of time. One sentence explains that training is tough, but the soldiers who survive it are some of the best in the world. Does this mean the others died in the process or didn't pass training? The author states that "old icebergs" are a good source of fresh drinking water, but the next sentence warns against approaching large icebergs. Other examples abound. With tight budgets, this one needs an anchor attached to its spine.
