Book Description

NEW & UPDATED VERSION! ***ALSO AVAILABLE IN PRINT***



Unexpected Doesn't Have To Mean Unprepared.



In today's fragile economic, political, environmental and social climate it's easy to see the necessity for becoming more self reliant.  Disasters such as Hurricane Katrina, the Japan earthquake and nuclear disaster, and the Boston bombing have relayed to us again and again that no one is left untouched in tragedies such as these.  Like the butterfly effect, disaster affects us all on a global scale, further bringing home the importance of having a plan, and making preparations to keep ourselves and our loved ones safe.  It is simply a matter of defining what you feel is important for you to prepare for in the event of an emergency, whether it be something as simple and basic as taking measures to prepare for an unexpected power outage, your vehicle breaking down, job loss, or illness. It may also include environmental preparations for fire, flood, or earthquake.  This book will help you to rethink your back up plans or create new ones should you not already have measures in place.

The author covers most situations in adequate depth (as well as can be expected in a 100 page booklet) and presents his ideas with a large amount of common sense. He considers the cost and practicality of a variety of options. The writing is easy to read if you can overlook several errors in grammar which are to be expected when reading a book written by an individual without the benefit of a team of editors. All in all, well worth the investment of both a couple bucks and an hour or so.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a good basic primer for survival October 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Most people are clueless about survival techniques and are far too dependent on
civilization to provide for their own needs. Just look at hurricane Katrina
where all the people just concentrated at the stadium.

The best thing to do is to avoid people during an emergency because
it tends to bring out the worst in people who will be prone to violence
to take what you have.

The only disagreement that I have with this book is suggesting a rifle for
hunting and self defense. A shotgun is far better. You have a different
array of ammunition to choose from depending on what you are going to shoot.

You have light bird shot for small animals and birds. You have buckshot
for bears, deer and human beings. Buckshot has tremendous stopping power.
I suggest a magnum pump shotgun chambered to accept the largest shells
of 31/2 inches. These have 50% more stopping power compared to the standard
23/4 inch shells against large animals like bear and deer
and most importantly people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Info. October 29, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I gave this book a great rating for several reasons, first it was free all I have to do is read it. It is written simple and to the point. My parents raised me to prepare for a rainy day be it hurricane or otherwise, this book brought to light a few things I hadn't thought of which was a plus. I think this book is a great simple go to guide which I will be ordering in paperback form.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful information to gleen April 28, 2014
By Ising
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As with most Er prep books there is always helpful information. I have gathered information from every er book I have ever read whether we'll written or not. I hope I never have to use items or knowledge of er prepping. However I'd rather be as prepared as I've deemed necessary and not need it than need it and not have poop!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Basic Guide to Get You Started on Prepping April 24, 2014
Format:Paperback
Have you ever thought about what you would do if (when?) the zombie apocalypse occurred? Where would you go? How would you survive?

Whether it's zombies or a more real-world threat you're worried about, David Pearson's The Essential Guide to Prepping is an excellent beginner's guide on the basic preparations for surviving an extreme event. He adequately covers topics such as how to reinforce your own home or to find shelter if you're on the move, what types of food you should stock, and how to store and/or find potable water. Pearson also covers a check-list of what to include in your basic "survival" first-aid kit that goes beyond the expected band-aids, pain killers, and Neosporin. In addition to these basic necessities, Pearson also includes some other interesting and important tips:

• Brush your teeth (and beware of sugary energy bars). Can you imagine having a terrible toothache with no access to a dentist?
• Buy (and take!) vitamins and minerals. Chances are you won't be able to eat balanced meals so be sure to have a pack of vitamins ready and available.
• Holistic remedies for headaches, stomach aches, itchiness and other common ailments.

The Essential Guide to Prepping is a very basic guide great for someone who has a peripheral interest in "prepping" and wants an overview. Pearson states right away in the introduction, and mentions a few times throughout the text, that in order to successfully prep, one will need to reference more detailed resources for topics like eating plants in the wild, medical care, and weapons and firearms.
