Wasteland Survival Guide
Know what I've decided, children? I'm gonna start a bookclub. Right... NOW! Wanna join? Good, cause you got no choice! Our first masterpiece is called "The Wasteland Survival Guide," written by Megaton/Underworld's own Moira Brown. Oh, and, get this - researched and co-authored by none other than - yep, you guessed it - that tenacious teenager from Vault 101. Now, let me tell ya. This thing's got all sorts of useful tips. Where to find food, how to deal with radiation, tons o' stuff. Survive, Thrive, and Revive, that's the name of the game. The book is the Wasteland Survival Guide!

- J.E. Sawyer: "Why wasn't the Scout Handbook from classic Fallout games included in NV/changed to Wasteland Survival guide?
There are very few links between F3 and F:NV. Including the WSG shows the wider impact and influence of the Lone Wanderer from F3 on the world."
