Survivor: the Ultimate Game reveals the keys to survival in this Machiavellian world. What is the secret to the Survivor's ultimate success? Hard work? Following the rules? Or is it more cynical? It's not what you know, it's who you know that counts. Get them before they get you. Executive Producer Mark Burnett takes readers behind the scenes of the CBS Television show, shares stories not seen on any broadcast, and explores what it takes to survive on Pulau Tiga.
