“Street Survival Skills” by Fernando “FerFAL” Aguirre – The Modern Survivalist

[ad_1]

It was nearly 10 PM when the Amazon guy finally showed up with the copies of my new book.

Until you actually see the book yourself, you worry about blank pages, terrible printing mistakes and similar disasters but no, if I may say so myself its a damn fine handsome book! 😉

Folks, my 3rd book is finally out. It’s available in Amazon:

“Street Survival Skills: Tips, Tricks and Tactics for Modern Survival”

The proof copies where printed in Poland, the retail one was printed in Germany. Both have nice thick paper, classy mate finish cover. The cover looks gorgeous in the physical copy. I used a photo from an old military canvas satchel for the background to give it that “notebook” feeling.

The book is 99% practical skills, with a page with sketches and drawings for each point so as to explain it in greater detail. Yes, those are my drawings. No, I’m not much of an artist but I believe the sketches and drawings do explain what I’m trying to say and that’s the point. (inlcuded below)

Guys, I honestly believe it turned out quite well. It’s the book I’m the most proud of and the one my family liked the most. I believe it goes along well with my first one, explaining many of the techniques mentioned there in greater detail plus another decade of additional experience, tips and thoughts.

If you do buy it and you find that you do like it (you can always return it if you don’t 😉  ) I would greatly appreciate if you left a review reflecting that in Amazon. Takes just a couple minutes and you wouldn’t believe how much it helps.

I’m pretty tired so I’m going to bed now. Happy but tired. I’ll do a video tomorrow showing how the book looks on the inside.

Take care, and if you buy it let me know what you think about it when you have the chance.

-Fernando
