I read this book on my kindle, but the print version comes in at 270 pages long, so this is no short and sweet pamphlet. What impressed me the most about this book is the amount of practical and helpful information found in each section of this book. While the sections aren't exceptionally long, the author manages to get the most important and basic information into each section so that the reader both understands the need and reasoning for that step and has some direction and specific actions that he or she can take immediately.
From Faraday cages to hardening your home and radiation safeguards to prepping your pets, this book surprised me with it's depth!
The "steps" are in alphabetical order rather than in any practical order of importance. It seems slightly amusing that becoming a ham is 30 "steps" before putting your financial house in order. Feel free to pick and choose the steps you read first.
Thankfully, the book is well formatted for the kindle with the ability to quickly switch between chapters/steps and access the linked Table of Contents. This is essential in a reference book, especially on that is organized alphabetically rather than for flow.Read more ›
I cannot recommend this book enough! My only minor complaint... would be nice if there was some sort of index in the back so you could more easily find a certain tool or technique fast again, but that is a very minor point.
It covers all the basic areas that you will need to be aware of. It gets you thinking!
Just starting out can be very overwhelming as how to prepare. I wish this book was around when I started prepping 4 years ago! The only thing I would like to see added to this book is a section designated for a list of resources for people to go to. I'm sure the author has several "go to" areas that he uses. i.e. internet sites for long term storage solutions, Food purchasing wholesale, sites that will guide people to more information. Maybe a resouce link to relate to each chapter in the book?
Because, once you start prepping you will want to know so much more. He mentions some sites throughout the book, but I'd like to see them all brought together in one section, and more of them. For example did you know that there is an American Preppers Network? and a chapter for each state? [...]
