5.0 out of 5 stars Great for beginners September 10, 2009
By Celia
This book is great for people that like the plain facts. You know what you are reading and don't have to reach for a dictionary for an explaination of a word or words. I have tried several of the receipes for solar and dutch ovens, they are very good. Will try building a rocket stove. New ideas for me and my family to try as a project for our storage. Thank you for a readable and understandable book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Used by One Red Cross Worker January 23, 2011
Emergency Preparedness The Right Way, by Howard Godfrey is, in my opinion, the best reference available on the subject. I have worked in Disaster Services at the American Red Cross for more than 15 years. I speak at service clubs, senior centers and many organizations about disaster preparedness and have been recommending Mr. Godfrey's book for the past year. It is the most complete work on this subject and goes way beyond the usual Red Cross presentation. Mr. Godfrey should have had a proof reader before publishing, but if you can get past the typos, you can benefit greatly by digesting much of his information and advice and putting it into practice.

4.0 out of 5 stars To the point! March 13, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Well written and to the point. I have spent time researching the topic and still found useful things in this little book. I like how he presents all the options but still points out the most realistic. I would definitely recommend this book for someone getting started in the emergency home preparedness. Again it was concise and easy to follow.

A well thought out book on how to prepare. Nothing earth shattering but it did point out some things that I had not thought of.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good book for the unprepared and urban person. July 25, 2011
By Alan
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I been reading and studying the art of survival for the last 20 years. Howard Godfrey has written a excellent book for the first time prepper or survivor. Or anyone thinking about get ready for the problems. Easy to read. Explains food storage and problems. A very good section on water use. The book is full of good and practical knowledge for the average person facing the problem to prepare. There are some spots in the book that are weak and like other survival books tend to be left out because of time and restraits. Like root cellar, acre gardening, raising small animals for meat,water tank house, cooling spot or cooling a house. Beside that, "Emergency preparedness the rightway" is great as a gift or a kindle book for anyone interested in this subject.
