Not well suited for audio

This is a book full of good tips, which will surely be applicable if you ever find yourself in a survival situation. However, as there’s lots of lists and short tips and tricks, the book is not really suited for audiobook adaptation. I will probably buy it again as an ebook at some point, so I can enjoy it better.

Not ideal as an audiobook without its diagrams

Lots of good information, but it's heavily dependent on accompanying diagrams (eg. edible plant identification, knots, trap-making, map reading) which make it useless as a standalone audiobook.
