I think in times of catastrophe, we try to reach out and help our brother than take from him. But I guess the book is talking about after a global catastrophe (hence the title!) where everything is gone and it’s a wasteland. Then we would probably revert to animalistic behavior to survive, that’s true. Let’s hope it never gets to that point. Anyway, the book is an excellent manual on survival. Good work! I hope I never have to use it.
Dan Martin presents a number of global disaster scenarios,ranging from the readily plausible to the truly exotic. Far from dismissing even more fanciful sounding prophecies, the author considers them surprisingly realistic descriptions of world wide catastrophes of epic proportion. In all of the various societal destroying cases, Dan Martin recognizes that the general population will be completely unprepared, and chaos will be the immediate result. The author points to examples like Hurricane Katrina to demonstrate that governments will be unwilling or unable to provide the needed assistance for survivors. To prevent this lack of preparedness from endangering the lives of his readers and their families, the author shares many survival techniques ranging from the simple to the extreme.
Dan Martin pulls no punches with his clear eyed description of the potential modern world ending catastrophes. The author leaves no doubt in the mind of the reader that should events unfold in any of the global destroying events described in the book, that the world we know will only be a distant memory. Instead of our usual daily routines, concerns, and obsessions, the first needs will be simple survival, food acquisition, shelter, and personal safety.
For Dan Martin, the old rules of society will be replaced by a ruthless law of the jungle aftermath, where people will be forced to change how they think about life, property, and other people. The scenarios presented are frightening, and outside of the life experience of most people. As a result, Dan Martin offers some lessons in disaster survival, many of which will be repugnant to most readers. He offers those ideas to give people a rude awakening as to what a post-apocalyptic world will be like in no uncertain terms. The world as we know will have ended, and Dan Martin shares harsh lessons in extreme survival techniques and strategies.
For me, the power of the book is how Dan Martin provides realistic and plausible scenarios of global disasters that would end modern life as we know and understand it. The author describes with unflinching clarity the difficult and soul searching decisions that people will be forced by circumstances to make to ensure the survival of themselves and their families. It should be noted that not all of the survival strategies and tactics are ones that would appeal to most people The author provides a service to his readers in making them aware that other crisis survivors might not be as ethical as the readers of this book. On the other hand, Dan Martin provides some very useful strategies that can be employed in local disasters; along with the global society destroyers presented in this book.
I highly recommend the over sized and potentially life saving book Apocalypse: How to Survive a Global Crisis by Dan Martin, to anyone seeking a no holds barred survival guide to global natural or man made catastrophes. The techniques shared in this book may not be for everyone, but the author leaves no doubt that people would never know what they would do in the rubble of a destroyed world.
Read the startling and surprisingly hope filled book Apocalypse: How to Survive a Global Crisis by Dan Martin, and discover how to build a life when the world as we understand it is long gone. Instead of becoming one of the uncounted casualties of a global apocalypse, this book teaches real world survival methods that can and will save your life and those of your family and loved ones.
