I was impressed with the organization and thoroughness of "Abigail Adams'" presentation, but with a couple of minor reservations. For someone who is just realizing there are serious problems looming on the horizon, and are looking for information on how best to prepared, it is excellent as far as it goes (comment below). Very well organized, and is complete with shopping lists and inventory lists to help the prepper get organized. The following comments I consider to be on the downside, but only slightly: Ms Adams uses a three-tier system for categorizing the serverity and potential length of a future disaster or other emergency, and that's fine: The three tiers are the 3-5-7 Track, for someone who needs to take care of themselves for 3 days to a week, the Foreign, Economic or Natural Disaster (FEND Track) with could last for months or years, and the Off-The-Grid Track, which is an all-encompassing failure of the entire infrastructure that could last indefinitely.

There's nothing wrong with this if you want to pick and choose what kind of failure of infrastructure you are planning to survive, although it seems to me the more you prepare for the Off-The-Grid event, the better off you will be for any less major disaster. But -- this shouldn't detract from the value of the information Ms Adams provides, which is excellent -- but frankly, the abbreviations were confusing: 3-5-7 Track, FEND Track, OTG Track. Maybe it's just me, but I had to keep referring back to what these abbreviations stood for. Not a serious problem; it just interfered with smooth reading.

*I said "...as far as it goes.": The two areas not within the scope of this book are Communications and Firearms. In a survival situation, you will need both.

I was expecting most of the survival information that I had in my other survival books to be condensed in this one book. This is a very basic survival book and the most frustrating issue for me personally with this book is that almost every other page the author recommends buying another survival book. If I wanted to buy 6, (at least), survival books plus this one that would be terrific; obvisiouly I wanted to use this one book to limit the amount of books I already have on the subject.

Well before I was through reading half of this book I could guess which book the author was going to recommend on the following page; it became laughable and disappointing. I also feel that I did not need to know the entire history of rice, for example, just some no b.s. way to store it and use it in an emergency situation.

This is the first book that I have ever returned because it was absolutely useless to me.

I gave this book 2 stars due to the survival checklists in the back of the book. It is a nice convenient tool, however I can also print these off of the internet for free from a survival blog or website.

I really dislike giving a book such a poor rating but for the price of this book I felt that I really needed to write a review. Why not just put the other information from all of the recommended books, (cited), into this one too?

It's a waste of money in my opinion.

Normally the name (Abigail Adams) on the front of a book would indicate the name of the author. This is not the case. There is a page in the front of the book dedicating the book to American founder John Adams' wife, Abigail.

I think this is a sizeable stretch of the truth since Abagail Adams is definitely not the author of this book.

Content is pretty detailed and information is helpful. I would have tried to come up with a more appropriate title for the book.

As usual, my purchase from Amazon was a pleasant experience.

This is a very detailed book about emergency preparedness. Different options are given for different scenarios. Where to buy products, cost and description of products needed are great.
