This is a good read but it's more of a disaster preparedness/SHTF survival guide than a bushcraft guide. Might be a good companion to your book OP.

I actually have this book!

It's actually pretty decent. Give it a good read through but understand it isn't the only resource you should rely on. I would look up the SAS Survival Handbook, The U.S. Army Field Survival Manual (FM 21-76), The Encyclopedia of Country Living and the Special Operations Forces Medical Handbook are good places to start.

Also look at as many youtube videos as possible. The Pathfinder School on youtube has some great tutorials on making fire. But do not rely purely on education to be able to survive. I recommend training in these skills as much as possible in your own backyard.

DO NOT just go out into the woods for a few days unless you got your shit together. I've had to rescue people like this and its not fun. Learn primitive fire making, hunting, trail marking and following, skinning animals and fish, compass navigation with regards to magnetic declination, etc.

Honestly the list go's on and on. When you think you got your shit together go out for a one night backpacking trip and spend a night out inawoods to see what you need to improve on. Survival is not a clear cut path through the bush, it's something you must continually focus on.

stay warm
have a shelter
cook your water
eat only stuff what you know

Because reading on paper > reading on screen. But then again:
Doing > Watching > Reading.

You might also consider a small pocket book of your local wild edibles.

I can't stay warm because I don't know how to make a fire next to the shelter I don't know how to build while drinking cold water I don't know how to cook with food I don't know how to identify.

I've seen that one. Lots of pictures very helpful. My gripe with it is the so called self defense section in the back. Pictures of skinny women beating down armed men in just a few EZ steps. This is not how combat works, and you would quickly be injured or killed. Good book but avoid that shit.
