This is the ultimate handbook for real men, explaining everything from surviving an avalanche and identifying poisonous snakes to picking a great cigar. The metrosexual man may be good at cocktail chat, but a real man knows how to fight off alligators, create a tourniquet out of a t-shirt, and rescue a drowning person. Frank Miniter’s “The Ultimate Man’s Survival Guide” is the ultimate handbook that shows men how to do all of these and more, including: how to fight off a bear; how to treat a snake bite and identify poisonous snakes; how to make a compass; how to set a dislocated joint; and, how to pick the perfect cigar and bottle of wine.Broken into seven sections – survivor, provider, athlete, hero, romantic, cultured man, and philosopher – Miniter teaches guys the skills, attitudes, and philosophies they need to be the ultimate man. Concisely written and packed with real-life anecdotes from Miniter and other men, “The Ultimate Man’s Survival Guide” teaches guys that the ultimate man isn’t an unattainable archetype; any guy can be the ultimate man whether he is rescuing a lost hiker, plucking a child from a swift stream, or standing up against injustice. Whether you’re a father, husband, brother, or boyfriend, this book shows you how to be the ultimate man – a man even James Bond would envy.
