Editorial Reviews

Review

"A concise summary of two of the most important threats of our time."--Tom Jansen, Emergency Management Consultant.

"Arguably the best book currently written on the subject of electromagnetic pulse and solar storm preparedness."--Maggie Ledbetter, fellow prepper and author of Living Simple.

"Presents useful data showing what works and, more importantly, what doesn't when constructing a Faraday cage . . . a guide filled with practical advice."--Boris V., Professor Emeritus, Electromagnetics Research.

"Does a great job of distinguishing the differences between the preparations needed for solar storms and EMP strikes."--Shane Connor, Ki4U

"Read this book and you'll learn some simple, inexpensive, and effective methods to protect critical equipment from an EMP pulse or a solar storm." -- Andrew Baze, author of The Road Home and the Personal Emergency Communications.

I've read a number of EMP books over the last couple of years. This is easily the most useful.

Other than a financial collapse, I believe an EMP attack is the man-made disaster most likely to befall the United States in the near future. It's a relatively lost-cost, low-tech method of eliminating the United States as a world power. A nuclear-tipped missile launched from a cargo ship in the Atlantic and exploded a couple of hundred miles over Kansas would knock out the power grid and destroy most of the electronics throughout North America.

An EMP attack would be a TEOTWAWKI event. It would be prudent for every family to try to preserve some basic electronics that would be useful in the aftermath -- short wave radios, walkie-talkies, ham radios, LED flashlights and lanterns, battery chargers, solar panels, etc.

There are many books on the effects of EMP. The theory is well understood. Unfortunately, there's very little solid data on protecting from EMP.

Dr. Bradley's book explains how, and why, a Faraday cage works. He provides a clear understanding of why grounding is generally unnecessary. He tests the effectiveness of various makeshift Faraday cages. He even provides references for surge protectors and UPS equipment that may offer reasonable protection against EMP surges introduced through the power lines.

This is a very practical guide for individuals to protect critical electronics from an EMP attack. It also deals with the effects of solar storms and provides guidelines for general preparedness. I've already used the information provided here for my own preparations. I would highly recommend this book.

This is a good ultimate source book for the topic of EMP. I've read many pieces and parts of the topic in many magazine articles, columns, and other books dedicating a brief chapter to the subject. If you are looking for an effective, comprehensive, one stop source, this book by Bradley is the one.

Format: Paperback
Once again Dr. Arthur Bradley has been able to simplify a subject that can sometimes be confusing and overwhelming. In 100 pages, Dr. Bradley not only explains in layman's terms the potential impact complexities of electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attacks and solar storms, he provides well-researched, excellent advice on basic steps to prepare for these and other potential TEOTWAWKI events. (For more detailed, step-by-step instructions on preparing for natural and man-made disasters, I recommend Dr. Bradley's Handbook to Practical Disaster Preparedness for the Family or the Prepper's Instruction Manual: 50 Steps to Prepare for any Disaster.)

This book is especially valuable for anyone who may have limited knowledge of EMP as a weapon and the widespread (and potentially devastating) effect that a high-altitude EMP (HEMP) attack would have on the continental United States. The author explains the effect of both an EMP attack and solar flares on the various national infrastructures such as the power grid and personal electronics, water supply, transportation, telecommunications, government and others. As an extra bonus, Dr. Bradley provides an excellent section on building a protective Faraday cage to shield personal electronic equipment - items that would be both valuable and useful after an event - from the effect of an EMP. He provides tested data to show the shielding effectiveness of the various types of Faraday cages. I highly recommend adding this book to your disaster preparedness library and getting a second copy for a friend or family member who may be ignoring these potential catastrophes.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is titled "Disaster Preparedness for EMP Attacks and Solar Storms". It does a reasonable job of describing what EMP and solar storms are but is nearly worthless for the preparedness part. The descriptive part provides about 5 pages of knowledge with a lot of "fluff" for filler (such as the photos of an obsolete Air Force testing facility, power lines, snow plows, and cell towers). The preparedness part is at the level that would be expected of two college sophomores discussing the topic for ten minutes in a bar while half drunk; it is a trivial recitation of the standard FEMA type information but is incomplete, misleading and at times actually counterproductive. For example: regarding water requirements during a disaster he repeats the standard two gallons per day per person. So far OK. His plan for providing potable water is to either "install a Seagull IV water purifier on the kitchen tap" or to "boil water on gas stove". This is not practical advice. In the EMP / solar storm scenario with large scale infrastructure collapse why assume that water will be available from the kitchen tap? Further, in such a scenario it is very wasteful of your precious stored fuel to boil water. A better answer is ordinary Clorox bleach. A 3 quart bottle of 6% sodium hypochlorite costs about $2.00 and will treat nearly 4800 gallons of clear water. Remember "drop per pint" as the recipe for treating clear water. For cloudy water filter through clean cloth (such as a tee shirt) and double the bleach -- let sit for an hour or so. If using a soft plastic bottle place the cap on loosely and squeeze some of the treated water out of the cap and around the threads to decon that part of the bottle. His level of analysis and practical advice is amateurish.

The one part that I found useful was on faraday cages. That part of the book provided sound, practical advice. That was the part worth 50 cents.
