<div class=”d4p-bbp-quote-title”>Toby C wrote:</div>What would be your ‘top five’ recommended books (pdf or physical) for:

1) Urban Preparedness<br>
2) Wilderness Survival?

The Modern Survival Manual: Surviving the Economic Collapse (by Fernando “Ferfal” Aguirre)
Ragnar’s Urban Survival: A Hard-Times Guide to Staying Alive in the City (by Ragnar Benson)
Survival: Live Off the Land in the City and Country (by Ragnar Benson) Older but well worth the time.

After that, they all kind of repeat the same stuff and are almost mind numbing with the similarities.

98.6 Degrees: The Art of Keeping Your Ass Alive (by Cody Lundin)
Bushcraft 101: A Field Guide to the Art of Wilderness Survival (by Dave Canterbury)
Essential Bushcraft (by Ray Mears)
Camping and Woodcraft: A Handbook for Vacation Campers and for Travelers in the Wilderness (2 Volumes in 1) (by Horace Kephart)
Camp-Lore and Woodcraft (by Daniel C Beard)

and honorable mention to:
SAS Survival Handbook (by John ‘Lofty’ Wiseman)

Yes some are older, but some of the older information isn’t available in the same manner/fashion as it once was.
And yes, both Lundin and Canterbury are represented, they both have a great deal of information regardless of what you see on TV.
