Just Imagine this hypothetical situation:

For a moment try to picture not having to use your car to go somewhere or smartphones never invented. Try to imagine that google maps never existed. And there are no grocery stores present anywhere near you to buy food. Your warm homes and cozy bedrooms suddenly disappear and you don’t even have safe drinking water. These are some of the many aspects that we as modern people are worried about in our daily life.

Today we cannot imagine how we will be able to survive without a fridge, television, smartphones or the internet. But this was never always like this, for our ancestors this was their daily life. They were able to thrive in a challenging environment centuries ago without looking for answers on google or the internet. We have lost a lot of survival skills and techniques by living in day and age. But the good thing is that this all can be learned through books and the internet, you just need to take the first step.

So in this post, I’ll be reviewing one such book entitled ‘THE LOST WAYS’. We will discuss all the good as well as the bad aspect of the book so that you can decide whether to buy it or not.

Details About Book “The Lost Ways” 

Lost ways book review

The lost ways is a survival book that is written by a survival expert named Claude Davis. In recent years, there has been a huge growing demand for good and informative survival guides in the market. But there are very few useful books from a practical standpoint.

To counter this Claude Davis came up with one of the most comprehensive guides that helps by copying what our ancestors did many years ago.

It is filled with a ton of methods and information that was passed down from our ancestors. The author argues that our society is changing for the worst.

The creature comforts that we Americans are having, have rendered us too complacent. In the book, the author explains that people no longer prepare themselves for the worst eventualities. Due to conveniences presented by modern technology.

The book emphasizes the importance for all humans to learn those skills. To such a point that we don’t have to be totally dependent on modern gadgets and other amenities. The book has a total of 350 pages and a couple of chapters. Throughout the book, we have discovered the once acquired ancient survival skills.

Some of the additional benefits of the book [PROS]

Aside from the survival knowledge and information provided in the book. There are some additional benefits associated with it. When compared to other guides in the market

Content lost ways book review

Easy to apply tips

The knowledge in the book is very simple and very relatable. There is no technical knowledge involve and these tips are very easy to use in our daily life. We ourselves have applied many of these tips in our daily life to save money on water, food and even medication for mild diseases.

Very comprehensive

Since the day we started this journey to this very day, we have read at least a dozen survival books and survival guides. But the problem with them was that they don’t hit the right spot. Some of them are very basic and do not contain enough information to help you survive various catastrophes and some are too complex to follow. But this book provides detailed information with images about the same topic in a relatively simpler manner.

Practical information

The information present in the book is much more practical and needs practice to be able to learn properly. For some people, it might be a con but let me assure you it will not go in vain. In fact, we have learned so much, more than what this book has to offer just by doing things. We have become more self-reliant and self-sufficient by constantly practicing the skills in the field.

60-Day Money-Back Guarantee

Another good thing about the book is that : it has a 60-day, no questions asked, full (100%) money-back guarantee in case you don’t like it. We personally don’t know how their refund policy works and how efficient they are. But all said and done it is a very much risk-free opportunity to try out this product for 60 days.

Few shortcoming of the book [CONS] 

Black and white pictures

This con is not present in the digital copy but rather in the physical copy of the book. All the pictures in the physical copy are black and white. This is not a problem until you reach the plant identification section. The main purpose that we bought the physical copy is to use it on the hiking trip for plant identification. And we felt very disappointed after knowing this. However, there are ways to solve it but, it is better to get color pictures at least where it is needed.

No Audios or Videos adaptation

The Product Does Not Come With Audios or Videos adaptation which is kind of disappointing. It is much more useful to hear and watch how to proceed with certain methods that are a bit complex.

And forget the ways of their forefathers. It is depicted by the author on numerous occasions throughout the book. His grandfather had came USA from Ukraine, escaping the horrors of a deathly famine, which killed 2.5-7.5 million. Learning lessons from this grandfather’s life, he undertook the job of sharing life-saving knowledge with the world

My Opinion

Honestly speaking…. I personally purchased this book to see what this book has to offer. And I must say this book has a wide variety of information on different aspects of survival. The language of this book is pretty simple to read and understand. And the character size (font size) is also big enough to be read by all kinds of people. There are few cons that I have already mentioned above. And also I wanna talk about the fake criticism this book is facing. I don’t know why this book is overly criticized by some people. I have seen some of the reviews and there were horrible about this book. They were just trash talking (BS) about the book. From my point of view this book is value for money and very informative. And at the end if you are not satisfied you can always have your money back.
