My first book was not an epoch shattering history but a fitness handbook based on the training regime I followed when training to do regular SAS selection back in the late 1980s (I got blown out for being too short-sighted), expanded to include some general fitness programs, some dietary and kit advice and some pointers about fitness training in the great outdoors. It’s fairly simple stuff but it does work: a good number of people have used the book to train for SAS selection and have got through, but many more have just followed the general fitness advice presented in it.

a very good book. thoroughly enjoyed reading it. found it a very usefull guide on how to get to the level of fitness required for the sas. plan on following albeit slightly modified when i hopefull start training for the london marathon.
This book is the best book I have ever read. As a “Desk Driver” I followed the shopping list, menus and diet, to the letter. I followed the training program, also, to the letter.
I had to shed 2 stone to meet British Military entry requirements.
Within 7 weeks, I had lost 2 and a half stones (35 lbs) and could complete the 1.5 mile BFT in under 9 minutes and 20 seconds.
Best book for preparation EVER…!
