Format: Paperback
From Canned Soup To Vacuum Packed Nuts, this book covers every basic need that an urban prepper needs to get themselves setup and right before an event. This book is helpful for for both the beginner and the seasoned prepper in that it helps you get items organized, helps you both work with what you have and details the things you need in regard to setting a baseline to work from.

Good:
-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

Bad:
-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 "Urban Prepper with Kids, Pets & Parents" is a very well written practical guide to preparing for most conceivable disaster situations. We are somewhat causal preppers since we live in an area that is prone to being snowed in and we have lost power for days at a time, so we have planned to be self-sufficient for upwards of a week. Having read a lot of books on prepping, some with very bad advice, we have put together strategies for staying in our house and another if we should have to leave for an extended period. This book is an excellent starting place for those beginning to think about prepping and there is quite a bit here for even experienced preppers.

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!

Highly Recommended!

It is very professional, to-the-point, and very educational. I am in the Naval Sea Cadet Corps, and I was introduced to this book just before I went to training. It really helped me through a lot, just using the small tips I remembered. My OIC and my PO were very happy with my work. The book is easy to understand, can be used by anyone, and gives information that can be used every day, whether in life-threatening situations or not.
Big thumbs up.

There is nothing wrong with being prepared for any sort of disaster including natural disasters and more. My focus has mainly been on natural disasters as I live in an area where there are frequent earthquakes and possible tsunamis. However, I haven't prepared for other disasters and this book helped me to see the best ways to prepare for possible food shortages, power outages, water shortages, fuel shortages and more.

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.

Compared to the other prepper books found on Amazon, this book is a gem. It incorporates just about everything you will find on building a Bug Out Bag, Barter Goods, Personal Hygiene, Clothes, Communications, Having enough gas to get to your Bug Out Location if you have one. It is more comprehensive than most books on Amazon. I read it in one day and will be reading it again tomorrow because it has good advice. Yes, it is full of Amazon.com links, and some may not appreciate that. However, having links gives the serious reader a price range for something they may need. I also appreciated the section on bugging out with animals and the links for the Dog Emergency Survival Kit.

Wow, this was a very detailed, well-thought out book about disaster preparedness. It really understands families and all that would be involved if a disaster strikes. It made us think about what we need to do for our own family! Like "Freeze dried vs. Dehydrated?" It covers it all from power outages to natural disasters and riots. We especially loved all the diagrams, demonstrations and links included in the kindle version.
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
