This book is an amazing work for several reasons, not the least of which is a reality check.
It WILL NOT make a hero or super-survivor out of anyone; but it might save your life and the lives of those you love. It WILL make you think in real, down to earth, and practical terms.
A very quick example of a down to earth reality check:
How many of you Walking Dead fans fancy yourselves as a Rick Grimes type leader/hero? (Come on, get those honest hands up where we can see 'em) Well, Mr. / Mrs. "Hero," just how many hours a week do you spend getting and staying in shape? If the SHTF for real, you'll need to be able to run, dig, and fight without a pesky heart attack slowing you down.
How many of you keyboard commandos have actually gotten away from the keyboard and got to the range, or out to the woods for actual weapons drills?
My point is this: many of us have pre-SHTF ideas of what a collapse will look like, and what's worse, we have assumptions about how we will be able to deal with it. Many people in America simply assume that they'll "make it somehow," without even thinking of what they can realistically do, and NEED to be doing NOW to assess and prepare. Age, weight, and physical condition is just one factor to consider. There are literally hundreds of others that need to be considered. Max Velocity has distilled years of practical military experiences into one well organized manual to help you begin that consideration process, and begin it on the right footing, and with the right frame of mind. Using this manual you can begin making realistic decisions (BEFORE THE SHTF) as to what your actual capabilities are and where you can realistically improve the odds of actually surviving a collapse or disaster.
It's obvious that he loves our country and her people, otherwise he would have simply written a superficial reference guide to being "tacti-cool," and not tactical. One gets people hurt or killed, the other saves lives. I, for one, appreciate this most exceptional effort, and thank God he's on our side of the Constitution!
Best investment for the person that's serious about surviving when the SHTF! I highly recommend you get the hard copy. Just saying.
PS: Wish he'd get his next fiction book out.
