John Hudson, Chief Survival Instructor to the British Military, knows what it takes to survive. Combining first-hand experience with 20 years of studying the choices people have made under the most extreme pressure, How to Survive is a lifetime’s worth of wisdom about how strategies for dealing with life or death situations can help us excel in our everyday lives.

In this book, John shows you how to restructure your thinking in order to self-motivate, prioritise effectively, cultivate perseverance and expand your boundaries – helping you to tackle any obstacle in a positive, confident way.

Through gripping first-hand accounts of near disaster and survival stories from across the extreme world, you’ll learn that – by following simple key principles – anyone can develop the right type of mindset to make better decisions under pressure, and you’ll discover crucial skills which are as applicable to job interviews and presentations as they are to climbing Everest or being lost at sea.

How to Survive was released in hardback and audiobook format by Pan Macmillan on 27th June 2019, with a paperback edition coming soon.

A brilliant, brilliant book.

With clarity and humour, this book does what it says on the tin. John is the go-to-guy for survival wisdom.

Anyone who reads this will be delighted by the great common sense of Hudson’s observations and insights. A splendid book...chock-full of goodness and I can’t think of anyone I know who wouldn’t benefit from reading it.
