If you are looking at long-term storage for the first time and you need a book to explain the basics, this would be a good book. If you have started the process or have a preparedness plan in place, this is too basic.

The book was written in 1997 by someone I suspect is a Mormon (based on the 'this is not an official publication of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints' disclaimer,) mom of many (based on title page) that has real-life experience in food storage and rotation and has probably taught hundreds of other similar women to do the same. I also think this is a great person to learn from as real-life experience is valuable.

That said, the book was just too unfinished. There are so many books out there that cover everything in this book plus include so much more and it would be easier for you to find a larger, more complete book that can eliminate the necessity of keeping multiple resources on hand. Also, the book is outdated. It may have been republished in recent years but the text has not changed, making the examples too old for relevance. For example, the pricing descriptions are completely unusable.
