A splendid book . . . I can't think of anyone I know who wouldn't benefit from reading it

In How to Survive, John Hudson, Chief Survival Instructor to the UK military, shows how strategies for life or death situations can help us excel in our everyday lives.


John Hudson FRGS is a survival instructor, broadcaster, writer, public speaker and training consultant based in Cornwall, whose specialist work takes him to some of the most remote and extreme environments around the globe. A former RAF helicopter pilot, John is the British Military's Chief SERE (Survival, Evasion, Resistance & Extraction) Instructor, and an elected Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. He's also been a resident survival expert on two series of Discovery's prime-time TV show Survive That - a.k.a Dude You're Screwed in the USA - successfully putting his own resilience to the test on camera in front of millions. From the darkest depths of a jungle cenote, to the top of a stormy Alaskan glacier, John's sense of humour and everyday stoicism have won him many fans worldwide.


'A splendid book . . . chock-full of goodness and I can't think of anyone I know who wouldn't benefit from reading it' Marcus Berkmann, Daily Mail

What is the connection between crawling through a jungle and your to-do list? What can ejecting out of a stealth bomber teach you about the importance of thinking the worst? What can surviving in extreme situations teach us about surviving everyday life?

John Hudson, Chief Survival Instructor to the British military, knows what it takes to survive. Combining first-hand experience with twenty years of studying the choices people have made under the most extreme pressure, How to Survive is a lifetime's worth of wisdom about how to apply the principles of survival to our daily challenges.

The cornerstone of military survival is understanding the relationship between effort, hope and goals - a mindset that can be transposed anytime, anywhere. In How to Survive you will learn how this template for survival can be applied to any situation.

Through gripping first-hand accounts of near-disaster and survival stories from across the world, you will learn how, by following these principles, you can develop the mindset that will allow you to make better decisions under pressure, which is equally as applicable to first dates and presentations as to climbing Everest and getting lost at sea.

'When it comes to survival and getting out of trouble, listen to this man. John is the real deal' Levison Wood
