The standard survival retreat advice has always been to find a remote place in Idaho or Montana, with at least 20 acres, a 2,000-square-foot log cabin and a bunker underneath, a barn, pastureland, and a stream running through the property.

This short book was really more geared for just as it on a plot of land in your RV.

This is what I learned from this awesome book.

Seriously considering the dismal state of the U.S. economy, massive government debt and overspending, the money printing out of thin air by the Federal Reserve (QE3 - printing money like it's going out of style, because it IS going out of style), and the U.S. Debt to GDP ratio.

Thus, it seems time to get out of the stock market soon, cash in your IRA-401K paying the 10% penalty and get reinvested in tangibles like the "Five B's": 1.) Beans, 2.) Bullet
Interesting tidbits and solutions. A little too dirt cheap for me though.

While nominally useful as a list of things to think about, this book is too limited to the author's personal experiences to be of much practical use. There is very little discussion of solutions that deviate from the author's own, making the book more of a novelty than the practical how-to it was intended to be.

A succinct book about the basics of creating your own survival retreat on a budget.

Talks about his errors & evolution of his retreat, what to look out for & what to avoid.

Might be the most useful and practical book i've ever read
