Flap copy

A destined underground classic, 98.6: The Art of Keeping Your Ass Alive is a nonstop thrill ride, jam-packed with commonsense modern survival skills for the backcountry, the backyard, or the highway. Author Cody Lundin, founder and director of the nationally recognized Aboriginal Living Skills School, shares his own brand of wilderness wisdom based on the unique principle of keeping the body's core temperature at a lively 98.6 degrees. In his no-nonsense and informative style-paired with outrageously hip visuals-Cody stresses that a human can live without food for weeks, and without water for several days. But if the body's core temperature dips much below or above the 98.6-degree mark, a person can literally die within hours. It is a concept that many don't take seriously or even consider, but knowing what to do to maintain a safe core temperature when visiting the great outdoors could save your life. Delivered with wit, rebellious humor, and plenty of backcountry expertise, 98.6: The Art of Keeping Your Ass Alive is destined to not only entertain but to empower the reader with practical advice, information, and detailed instructions of how to create an effective modern-day survival kit using simple, easy-to-find items.

Customer reviews

The first half of this book is about survival psychology and physiology, mostly regarding regulating your core body temperature to avoid the detrimental and often fatal effects of exposure, specifically hyperthermia and hypothermia. Also goes into hydration and acclimatisation. Cody is clearly knowledgeable on the subject and comes across rather scientific and delves into the synthesis of ATP, storage of glycogen & insulating properties of nylon vs polyester but there are no citations so we just have to trust his credibility. More than you ever wanted to know on the subject, but it's what you need to know.show more
