This book has a ton of useful information, but it falls flat because it assumes certain things about the reader that aren’t necessarily accurate:

1. You live in a house.
2. You own the house you live in.
3. You’re a dude. (The author doesn’t explicitly say “Hey, gents,” but there are several times when he seems to forget that women could also be reading this book and appears to be addressing men directly. This doesn’t take away from the information he’s providing, I just find it annoying.)

An excellent, balanced, practical guide to preparing for and surviving disasters. The first half of the book is the most useful - I skimmed the latter half as some of it wasn't particularly relevant or useful to me such as radiological hazards, firearms and I have better resources for first aid. It is US-biased so some of the resources listed, mentions of NOAA weather radio etc aren't applicable outside the US but overall it's applicable in all countries and well worth a read. The author doesn't ...more

really a useful book for those of us who don't live a preppers life but want to understand how to survive. its all about planning for the most likely thing to happen to you. not the wildly unrealistic. if that happens only the compounds will survive but its not likely. I enjoyed and very much value the simplicity and ingenuity of this book.

Events have made me who I am, neither a hardcore survivalist nor an all-trusting soul. I am a Boy Scout in the truest sense of the word—dedicated to family, country, and good citizenship. As you may already know, an enabling element of those ideals is being prepared.

It took the horrific events of 9/11 to wake me from my routine complacency. In one single moment, I came to realize that our world is
