What if you were left stranded after an avalanche, or dropped into the middle of a jungle, shipwrecked on an island, or found yourself alone on a deserted street in the middle of a strange city - could you cope?

By Kenn Griffiths, it could save your life...

World events have changed our perspective on many things, and proved that even in an age when technology can make life simple, we still need our inner strength and ability to survive day by day. The Essential Survival Guide not only explains how we can develop the right psychological approach to cope with extraordinary and life-threatening situations, but also provides information on the methods and practical techniques that can determine whether you live or die - from basic self-defence to finding food and shelter.

No matter where you may go or what you may do, ask yourself one question: do you have the know- how and the will to survive? If not, you need this book.

As a former marine and police officer Kenn has first hand experience of survival, anti-terrorist and covert surveillance techniques. As a soldier he served in many remote areas of the world and his knowledge and research have given him an invaluable insight into a world which most of us will never see but which he shares with a writers passion.

Kenn has authored many books including The Private Investigators Handbook and The Essential Survival Manual.

Kenn was recently invited to give a hands on survival talk and book signing session at Mostly Books, New Bookshop of the Year 2008, in the Thameside market town of Abingdon, Oxfordshire.

Ever since we set the event up, I was unfeasibly excited about last Tuesday's "Survival" event with Kenn Griffiths. I'm pleased to say it met all my expectations - and more. A really great event. The shop still smells (faintly) of wood smoke, but the parachute-covered shelter is now down, and lots of children in and around Abingdon now have a better idea on a whole range of subjects - from knowing the best way to light a fire to concealing themselves in foliage - and even the dangers (and best way) of drinking your own wee....
