I won't begin this review by handicapping the possibility of a nuclear attack. That's above my pay grade.

But as someone who lives downrange of North Korea, I know that the lunatics in charge of that desperate asylum are capable of anything, including launching a nuclear tipped Taepodong-2 missile in my direction.

Since I am not content to experience an overdose of overpressure, or needlessly expose myself and my family to deadly radiation and fallout, I was attracted to this book.

The book is well organized, and the content clearly written, without technical jargon. It is a how-to manual which succeeds at its goal of instructing its reader in how to take steps to quickly, simply, and affordably construct protection against nuclear attack and its aftermath.

The book's author is not some Whole Earth pretender/author, but a scientist whose works have protected American soldiers in the Pacific campaigns of WWII, and whose nuclear survival shelters and strategies have been tested on nuclear bomb test sites.

The political landscape has changed since the book was written. The Soviet Union no longer exists, but its arsenal still does and is under the control of Vlad Putin, a Cold War Era KGB man. The tide of history has pushed the USSR into the proverbial dustbin, so the frequent references to them seem archaic. But one should not assume that the threat has completely dissipated. After all, the list of nuclear armed countries is long and growing: China, India, Pakistan in the east; Israel and Iran (soon) in the Middle East; France, Great Britain, Germany, Russian and several of the freed Soviet satellite nations - Georgia, Ukraine, Poland, etc. - in Europe; and finally the U S of A.

Admittedly this book is slightly dated but not in a way that a competent person can't make up for. There are huge amounts of information that was very useful in this. Perhaps more importantly there were vast amounts of practical inexpensive solutions too, along with detailed and diagrammed instructions on how to employ them. You would be hard pressed to find a person more on the cutting edge of nuclear preparedness research. I highly recommend this book!

This book is not just a holdover from the Cold War. It is a Government sponsored (Oak Ridge National Labs) guide to a very potential future conflict, as well as an in-depth analysis on current Civil Defense spending in the United States.

For a long time it was assumed that Nuclear war would leave no chance for survival, so spending on Civil Defense became non-existent. But this was a flawed assumption, and this book goes into detail about it, as well as a number of other commonly accepted myths. Much of the radiation trails off faster than previously expected, and the long term effects are less than initially understood, making not only survival but eventually recovery a very real likelihood.

Like it or not, we live in a hostile world. The more countries that develop nuclear technologies, the higher the risk is that one of those countries may use them. In the off chance that one of them does, the knowledge in this book could save millions of lives if it was still being pushed out through official channels.

Nobody likes the idea of this. It's funny to joke about the off chance (mostly to avoid the reality of the threat), but it's also a serious underlying risk across the globe, and is once again a growing possibility. If something like this could make the difference between survival for a family, wouldn't it be worth the $20?

This is a great book, don't know of any other that goes into the explicit and detailed instructions as this one does. I learned things about protecting myself from radiation that I didn't know about, easily constructed shelters or bunkers using some muscle power.
