4.0 out of 5 stars How to Get the Most Out of B.O.B., May 7, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Build the Perfect Bug Out Bag: Your 72-Hour Disaster Survival Kit (Paperback)
How to Get the Most Out of B.O.B.

"Build the Perfect Bug Out Bag: Your 72-Hour Disaster Survival Kit" by Creek Stewart is a well-thought-out book that is clearly formatted and illustrated to help convey the information within. The format of this book reminds me of another excellent book titled "Build the Perfect Survival Kit" by John McCann, that I also highly recommend. This book is excellent for the novice and experienced Prepper, as well as the conventional camper and survivalist. This book provides an excellent blueprint for compiling components for a Bug Out Bag (BOB), as well as selecting the perfect BOB to carry all the discussed gear and components. The gear discussed in this book covers everything from field camping tools (pocket tools, ax, shovels, etc.), hygienic items, various environmental clothing, lightweight shelters (tarps, etc.), field bedding (sleeping bags, hammocks, etc.), water purification, rations and ignition systems for fire making. All the equipment discussed in this book predominantly focuses on the items being lightweight and provide multiple use items, which is a common theme when selecting items for survival situation. Additionally, this book provides a host of inset text boxes providing valuable survival tips, in addition to the information instructing you how to develop your own BOB. This book also had a few interesting chapters that stood out to me that I think are worth mentioning. Chapter 13 covers information on protection and self-defense, with some discussion of the self-defense mentality. Although this chapter was very brief it did however cover all the salient points, as this topic alone could be its own book. Another interesting chapter covered some basic information about bugging out with pets. This is a topic I have not seen covered in other books and found it enlightening. Finally, chapter 17 on mental and physical preparedness was another chapter providing the reader basic information on the topic, which is not generally covered in book of this type. I personally believe this to be one of the most important chapters in the book, without a strong body it is hard to keep a strong mind. And the mind is the most important tool the Prepper or survivalist will ever have. Overall I highly recommend this book and believe that the experienced and novice will learn something from this book.

You wrote a glowing review. Can you provide some color on why you gave the book four stars instead of five?

Have you read the book Realistic Bug Out Bag by Gunner Morgan? I have been hearing good things about that book as well. Thanks.
