It was obvious that quite a bit of thought went into this book. While the book is not extremely long, it is well laid out and all the important aspects are covered. The detailed, linked table of contents went on for more than seven pages on my Kindle reader. This makes for easy access to the information when you want to reference it later. Here are the main chapters.

Chapter 1: Meet BOB - the Bug-Out Bag
Chapter 2: Choosing an Emergency Gear Bag
Chapter 3: Water and Hydration
Chapter 4: Food and Food Preparation
Chapter 5: Clothing
Chapter 6: Shelter and Protection
Chapter 7: Making a Fire
Chapter 8: First Aid
Chapter 9: Hygiene and Sanitation
Chapter 10: Important BOB Tools
Chapter 11: A Light for the Road
Chapter 12: Communicating
Chapter 13: Money and Documents Important Documents
Chapter 14: Surviving with Pets
Chapter 15: Self-defense
Chapter 16: Extras for Your Optional Bag
Chapter 17: Organizing and Maintaining Your BOB
Chapter 18: Obtaining the Knowledge to Survive

The writing style was helpful and the author offered up lots of useful advice as well as options for those that might be in a different situation or might not want to follow his personal recommendation.

This book is absolutely recommended for anyone who wants to take a quick and concise look at the "Bug Out Bag" to create a new one or to see if they need to make any changes to their current bag.

If you want another book with some more specific advice on lightening up your BOB, I recommend Ultralight Survival: Make a Small and Light Bug Out Bag That Could Save Your Life

It really gives the novice a great place to start. Covered a lot of things that may not be practical for some families.
The chapter on lethal weapons was a bit left-wing leaning for me but overall very good.

This short book has some excellent information in it. The basics of a survival kit are listed in great detail. There is in depth information from the selection of a bag to types of communication that may be used.

It also covers how to make a fire and the importance of having first aid knowledge.

Highly recommended.

I don't think that it covers everything that it should but it is a good start for the beginner. People need to take their B.O.B. out for for 3 days an try living off it and think about how they would protect what they have and them selves out in the boonies.

Bug Out Bag Book: A Quick BOB Guide on How to Make the Ultimate Bug out Bag by Robert Reinoehl is for those who know little to nothing about assembling a BOB. The book is well written and organized in a logical manner. My issue with this book is that it lacks any insight or product recommendations. Providing specific product recommendations or choices would significantly help point the reader in a direction when it comes time to purchase a product. Like many books in this genre there are lists of what to put in your bag but unfortunately there is little in the form of specific product recommendations or information as to why one product is a better choice then another. This type of insightful information would significantly provide more utility to the reader than just providing a list of what to put in your BOB. If you have any experience with BOB's this book will not offer you anything new.

Overall Assessment:

Bug Out Bag Book: A Quick BOB Guide on How to Make the Ultimate Bug out Bag by Robert Reinoehl is written for those who want to assemble a BOB and are just getting started. The book fails to go into any detail so further research on your part will be required especially when deciding which specific products to put in your gear set up. For those who have even a basic understanding of a bug out bag this book will not provide any new or insightful information. All of the information presented in this book is available for free on the internet.

A book that I do recommend is: Realistic Bug Out Bag by Max Cooper.

This is the type of book that is good to have in cases of emergency... or just needing to be prepared for a trip!
Highly recommend for those looking at the being prepared for weather related events, earthquakes, or just to have something handy in the event you are called upon to help someone in an accident.

Good basic information. Can be adapted to almost everyone's situation or location. It brought up some ideas I hadn't thought about.
