Bug Out Bag Encyclopedia by Joseph Yao is such a detailed and comprehensive guide on survival. I was blown away by the amount of research it must have taken to compile this encyclopedia. Everything is laid out so clearly and I loved the bullet points and diagrams. The chapters are split into sections, making it so much easier to find the information you need. The section on first aid was incredible, especially the vast amount of advice given on tourniquets. I loved how the author always suggests items that have many purposes, such as iodine, alcohol prep pads, and garbage bags for shelter. I thought the chapter on food items was so helpful; he covered absolutely everything, from hunting, fishing, and edible plants as well as the normal food items you can purchase. My favorite chapter was regarding the use of power banks in conjunction with solar panels. I cannot stress how much guidance is included in this incredible guide - a must-read for anyone with an interest in survival.
