Editorial reviews:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "In the book Thrive, Juan Pablo has compiled an amazing amount of useful information for long term survival situations - anyone is sure to glean much useful information from its pages, both experts and novices alike!"
"Definitely a book worth having for anyone who is interested in survival."
JORDAN JONAS, wilderness living and self-reliance expert and winner of ALONE Season 6
"Juan Pablo loves living outdoors and is obsessed by long-term wilderness survival with minimal kit and supplies."
"What makes his book refreshing is the attention to the importance of psychological preparation for long term periods of isolation. 
Thrive is a great balance of literary research done by a practical man who has walked the walk and learned his own lessons along the way. For anyone interested in living next to nature for more than a few weeks this is an essential read."
ED STAFFORD, explorer and first person to walk the Amazon
"I've read and referenced a lot of bushcraft and survival books over the years but I've never seen anything as comprehensive as Thrive. Juan Pablo has really outdone himself."
"Thrive is different. Not only does it give you practical advice on everything from choosing a good shelter site to procuring and preserving food in the wilderness, but it covers the mental side of survival in detail. And as Juan Pablo says, survival is 90% mental. I'd recommend this book to anyone interested in bushcraft, survival, or long-term wilderness living. I know I'll have a copy on my bookshelf."
—CLAY HAYES, bowyer, hunter, and winner of ALONE Season 8
"There are a lot of books on survival out there, but Thrive is unique in its focus on true long-term wilderness living skills, not just 'get out of a jam without dying' skills." ​​​
Thrive covers topics many books don't and will be a wonderful new addition, rounding out the survival literature considerably."
—WONIYA THIBEAULT, first woman to win ALONE and ancestral skills teacher
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "
Thrive is not only superbly researched, but is written by someone who walks the talk and intimately knows the boreal forest."
"Whether you are a complete beginner or have years of wilderness living experience, 
Thrive is filled with unique insights, critical advice and detailed tips that will make a world of difference if you are trying to truly live off the land."
—NATHAN MARTINEZNaked and Afraid participant and author of Subsistence: A Guide For The Modern Hunter Gatherer
"Thrive is the real thing, written by a man who has gone out to prove he could survive alone in a tough environment."
"The Canadian wilderness can be a tough traveling companion. Juan Pablo's skills and experience in surviving over the long-term in the Canadian wilderness shine through in this book from cover to cover. This book is part of my survival book library; I advise you to make it part of yours."
—BRUCE ZAWALSKY, survival instructor and author of Canadian Wilderness Survival
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "
The world is full of alleged survival experts. Juan Pablo is a man who truly deserves this title. He has trained and then tested his survival skills for extensively long periods in the brutal winters of Northern Canada."
"He has a scientific approach to the craft of wilderness survival that I admire. This book encompasses the skills and knowledge that took Juan Pablo years of experimentation, and field testing, in extreme environments to learn."
—DAVE HOLDER, wilderness living skills guide and instructor, and lead survival consultant for the ALONE series
