-Short, well laid out chapters
-Not a read from cover to cover book (you can skip around and not lose anything)
-Very simple language (no tech jargon or 31337 speak)
-Assumes that you know nothing and helps go from there
-Semi-redundant (a few things look like someone got the copy/paste buttons stuck or filled out dead chapters with repeats)
-Chapters on Bugging Out vs. Bugging in are a little too short
-References to open source places for answers like Wikihow and such can be annoying, if I wanted to look at wikihow, I would but I bought your book for help...
Overall 4.5/5.0 stars (rated at five, because there is no 4.5) as this is a great resource for starting out and to add some flavor to those who have done it for years.
The book addresses preparing to meet your basic needs of food, water, shelter, heat, and personal protection. It then provides advice for surviving most conceivable disasters, including natural and unnatural (man made) varieties. I particularly like the "Before, During, and After" event approach that will be useful to those living in areas with a higher probability of experiencing a specific disaster (Earthquakes in California, Winter Storms in mine, etc). The sections on pets, elderly, and disabilities makes this worth having for me since those are concerns we have to deal with in planning our preps.
The advice in the book is fairly solid and avoids pitfalls of giving advice on contentious areas like firearms (mentioned, but not in-depth) and only touches lightly on political issues.
Like all books of this type, you really do need to read it before you need it!
Big thumbs up.
I learned a little more about the differences between dehydrated and freeze-dried foods along with their nutritional value which will help in the near future.
One of the most important chapters in the book is on whether to decide to stay or leave my home depending on the threat of the situation. I'm glad the author outlined and discussed other options I would be able to take. The author took the time to discuss in detail every possible way to prepare for pending disasters. I plan to look further in various options and I believe this book will help others reach all of their preparedness goals. This is a good book to use as a reference on a regular basis.
I have to admit it was a little scary to be faced with all the possible disasters that could happen in one book but I think you can never be too prepared. I better get started making my BOBs
