"Imagine you are ship wrecked on an island, and the only other companion you will find yourself with is an adventure racer. You better make sure that the fellow is Ian Adamson. His book on the sport is easy on the head and heart and written in a breezy and informative way. When he explains techniques and tips of the trade, it's not like you have to bash a few coconuts to figure out what he means. I recommend this how-to guide to both novices and experts, want-to-be Survivors (hey, there's a bunch of wilderness stuff here) and weekend warriors. Thank your lucky navigational stars that Ian has set forth in one volume, years of accumulated wisdom as one of the toughest men on the planet."--Bill Katovsky, founder of Tri-Athlete Magazine, author and winner of Harvard's Goldsmith Book Prize Award.
