I feel like this book is totally under-appreciated these days. I hardly ever hear it mentioned anymore. But it's an incredible book! I definitely would recommend it to any rookie explorer (and even some of the veterans) - it's the definitive guide on the topic! There is no other book out there quite like it. And it also has an important place in the history of the organized urban exploring community.

I got this book for Christmas a couple of years ago. Lots of great advice on just about every type of explore you can think of.

I picked up a copy a few months back. I figured "Might as well!"
I thought it'd all just be refresher material, but i actually learned a few tips and tricks! A good read, indeed.

Just ordered it off amazon last week. Should be here any time now. I am really looking forward to reading it.

Related question: I noticed on the Infiltration.org home page that you can buy this book together with the zines. I would have gone this way, but I wasn't sure if the zines were still being printed. If they are still being printed, are they worth looking at?

Just pulled the trigger on ordering mine as well! And I'm also curious about the zines.

I have been to the Infiltration home page several times since ~2004 and I don't think the page has changed since.

Hence why I was questioning if the zines were still in print.

I have read most of the zines. They're definitely really interesting! Nothing quite as practical as Access All Areas, but fascinating nonetheless. And again, a major part of the history of this community.

I have no idea... I ordered mine back in '08. I do know that Liz (Ninj's widow) does still respond to emails regarding Ninj's work. She would be the one to ask...if no one here has an answer?

Just got my copy in the mail and read a little during my lunch break. I really didn't want to put it down

When I first discovered this site, the main thing holding me back from beginning urban exploration as a hobby myself was a fear of all of the things I didn't know. I was afraid that I didn't have enough knowledge of the risks and dangers, and didn't want to do something stupid that would get me killed. I found info about "Access All Areas" somewhere here on UER, and after reading it, I felt a lot more confident about getting out and exploring.

Now I occasionally reread "Access All Areas" for tips and pointers. It's fairly short, and very interesting, so it is easy to finish in a day or two.




If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find him, maybe you can hire... Tunnelrunner33!

As of six months ago, back issues of Infiltration zine were still available for purchase. I got me a set. Some great stories in there.

Reading Access All Areas was for me like waking from sleep.

I bought it about a month after I joined and finished it in a few days. So far I've let my cousin, a friend and actually my grandpa borrow it. Just shows you don't have to be full on UE to enjoy. It was a well written book, and interesting




Samurai ability to enter any establishment...thanks grandpa for all the training.
