The SAS Survival Handbook - John Wiseman
Lofty's original manual and still one of the best - instructions taken from the SAS Survival Manual!

The Survival Skills Handbook - Martyn Forrester
This is the second best survival book published and one of the few books I'd actually take with me on a journey. It's extremely well written, covering not just practical needs and standard survival instruction, but also the mindset required. Examples are also given with survivors telling their stories, so you know the challenges ahead. This is also the only book I know that covers cannibalism seriously.

An urban version of the SAS Handbook, this is a collection of all the safety warnings on everyday products you never read in their own manuals, as well as helpful advise on how to stay safe everyday. Still interesting in parts.

The SAS Survival Driver's Handbook - John 'Lofty' Wiseman
If you haven't read the police driving manual, then this is a good introduction to safe travelling day to day on and off the roads. It mostly covers regular maintenance on your car, how to tow a caravan, etc - hmm not the image given out by the SAS. But if you want your child to drive carefully, a former SAS survival instructor may be the peer pressure they need.

SAS Survival Guide (Collins Gem) - John 'Lofty' Wiseman
This is Lofty's Manual in a condensed and pocket-sized form.

Practical and honest advice - very good instruction!

You won't survive a direct strike, but this is probably the best manual on the topic

This isn't as good as the USAF Survival Manual and in no was as in depth, but a decent book (too large to carry with you!).

Advice taken from Combat & Survival Magazine is condensed into a hardback book. Nothing new, but the illustrations are a work of art and will help you remember better than words ever did - that said practice makes perfect!

Chris (nearly got myself killed) Ryan isn't Lofty, but he does copy a lot from the same manual as Lofy, so its a decent book, but not the best!

Thinking About Survival - Bruce Clayton
Very American, put 'thinking about' in front of every basic survival topic and the result is this rather thin book.

Thinking about clothing, thinking about weapons, etc.

Great book, wise words, but god is this a huge book, and I mean in size, not just the number of pages. Doesn't fit on any bookshelf I know; could be used as a camping bed?

That's fiction - I don't do fiction ;-)
If it ever comes to pass, destroy their brain, don't get bitten and avoid contact with their blood!

I also won't be adding...
The survival guide to dating
The survival guide to golf
