Editorial Reviews

Review

“A classic outdoor manual. … Written by John Wiseman, former survival instructor for Britain’s elite Special Air Service (an all-conditions strike force considered by some to be tougher than the U.S. Navy SEALs), the book addresses every conceivable disaster scenario. … Don’t leave home without it.” (Outside magazine)

“This step-by-step survival bible has… prepared [me] for anything. … This edition’s most valuable lessons arrive in its new ‘Urban Survival’ section, which features tactics for countering espionage and dealing with urban animal attacks.” (Washington Post)

Biography

Seven time New York Times bestselling author John Weisman is one of a select company of authors to have their books on both the Times nonfiction and fiction bestseller lists. He pioneered coverage of Naval Special Warfare when he co-authored the No. 1 NY Times bestseller “Rogue Warrior,” then conceived, created, developed, and wrote eight best-selling Rogue sequels.

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Seymour Hersh called his 2004 novel “Jack in the Box” ‘The insider’s insider spy novel.’

Bestselling author Joseph Wambaugh says of Weisman, “Nobody writes better about the dark, dirty, and dangerous world of the CIA…”

Former CIA case officer and bestselling author Robert Baer says, “John Weisman takes the reader into the very heart of CIA and its special operations.”

John’s latest special operations novel based on true events was “KBL – KILL BIN LADEN.” Sourced and reported as if it were nonfiction, the book was released in November 2011 to universally laudatory reviews.

Bing West, America’s foremost writer on war-fighting called “KBL” “An extraordinary look inside Special Operations Fores at the team level.” The Iron Mountain Daily News wrote, “Weisman has penned an account that, though technically a work of fiction, resonates with credibility.”

And despite two alleged “nonfiction” accounts of Operation Neptune Spear, there are more than a few Special Operations Forces warriors who describe Weisman’s “KBL: Kill Bin Laden” as the book that comes closest to holistically capturing the political and military gestalt surrounding the historic Abbottabad raid.

John Weisman lives on Florida’s Gulf Coast.
