A high altitude electromagnetic pulse (HEMP) could/would take America back into the stone age.
Within 1 year we could lose 50%+ of our population.
This is stunning info, but North Korea & Iran are very likely developing these weapons.
Dr. Pry understands HEMP and explains it thoroughly.
This book makes you want to take extreme precautions.
This book is a must read for any thoughtful American.

This subject is so important that it eclipses everything else we should worry about (and there are other serious problems). If we cannot handle something as simple, easy to fix, and potentially fatal (and I mean fatal), I do not think our form of government will last much longer. Read up on this subject and decide for yourself.

Rather than being a guide for individual preparedness, it is an book on government preparedness and the lack of the U.S. government's preparedness. It doesn't mince words about how such an event would impact our Nation. However, this treatise seems to have gone in Congress' ears and out the others. So it falls to us, now, to put pressure on Congress to do something about it. I don't see how anyone Congress could dismiss such a well written and scientifically supported book as being alarmist.

Does anyone else see anything ironic about this book being offered for Kindle only? (Or at least I think so, because I didn't find a paper version here...)
Sounds like an interesting read, but in this case I'll wait until I find the edition I can read by candlelight in case it becomes necessary. Gave it 4 stars just so the numbers aren't skewed by my smart-assedness.

This book discusses a little known (To the American people) threat to this nation that we have, at this time, no defense in place for. The book provides a description of the various types of naturally and man made electromagnet pulse events, how a natural EMP event or an EMP attack would cripple this country, why our current emergency response plans would be woefully inadequate, what we can do to mitigate the risk, and why our leadership has failed to either inform or protect Americans from this threat. After reading this book you will understand why the current chess game playing out with Iran is so vitally important.

Simply stated: What if the electric power went out and never came back on? Yes, that sounds very much like the premise behind NBC's "Revolution." But unlike the cause of the power failure in "Revolution," this is not science fiction. Nor is it scare mongering. A total power failure via an EMP attack is based on factual material and was proven to be possible during the American and Soviet nuclear tests conducted many years ago.

Do be aware that this book was written by scientists and analysts from agencies such as the CIA and NSA. It is not leisure time reading. Those looking for an easier way to learn about this topic or who do not have the means to read an electronic book might enjoy reading "One Second After" which is also available on Amazon. While a fictional story, the book will explain how an EMP attack would force America back to the 1800S in literally one second in time. Whichever version you choose, please take the time to educate yourself about a threat that could be employed by any nuclear armed nation to destroy this country.
