About the Author
Dr. Arthur Bradley holds a doctorate in engineering from Auburn University and currently works for NASA. Having lived all across the United States, he writes from personal experience about preparing for a wide variety of disasters, including earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, house fires, massive snowstorms, electromagnetic pulse attacks, and solar storms. He has been featured in the New York Times, Money magazine, the Toronto Sun, and numerous radio shows. Dr Bradley subscribes to the philosophy that preparedness should always be motivated by love and concern, never by fear and paranoia. His practical approach to family preparedness has received widespread praise from individuals, emergency preparedness groups, and religious organizations. He is the author of several highly acclaimed books on disaster preparedness, including the “Handbook to Practical Disaster Preparedness for the Family,” “Disaster Preparedness for EMP Attacks and Solar Storms,” and the “Prepper’s Instruction Manual.” He conducts free seminars around the world, teaching individuals and families how to establish effective disaster preparedness plans.

Other than a financial collapse, I believe an EMP attack is the man-made disaster most likely to befall the United States in the near future. It's a relatively lost-cost, low-tech method of eliminating the United States as a world power. A nuclear-tipped missile launched from a cargo ship in the Atlantic and exploded a couple of hundred miles over Kansas would knock out the power grid and destroy most of the electronics throughout North America.
An EMP attack would be a TEOTWAWKI event. It would be prudent for every family to try to preserve some basic electronics that would be useful in the aftermath -- short wave radios, walkie-talkies, ham radios, LED flashlights and lanterns, battery chargers, solar panels, etc.
There are many books on the effects of EMP. The theory is well understood. Unfortunately, there's very little solid data on protecting from EMP.
Dr. Bradley's book explains how, and why, a Faraday cage works. He provides a clear understanding of why grounding is generally unnecessary. He tests the effectiveness of various makeshift Faraday cages. He even provides references for surge protectors and UPS equipment that may offer reasonable protection against EMP surges introduced through the power lines.
This is a very practical guide for individuals to protect critical electronics from an EMP attack. It also deals with the effects of solar storms and provides guidelines for general preparedness. I've already used the information provided here for my own preparations. I would highly recommend this book.
This book is especially valuable for anyone who may have limited knowledge of EMP as a weapon and the widespread (and potentially devastating) effect that a high-altitude EMP (HEMP) attack would have on the continental United States. The author explains the effect of both an EMP attack and solar flares on the various national infrastructures such as the power grid and personal electronics, water supply, transportation, telecommunications, government and others. As an extra bonus, Dr. Bradley provides an excellent section on building a protective Faraday cage to shield personal electronic equipment - items that would be both valuable and useful after an event - from the effect of an EMP. He provides tested data to show the shielding effectiveness of the various types of Faraday cages. I highly recommend adding this book to your disaster preparedness library and getting a second copy for a friend or family member who may be ignoring these potential catastrophes.
So who do you ask? The Survivalist or the NASA engineer (PhD no less) who's job it is to research EMP? Personally I'd ask the Engineer for NASA, I'd look to the survivalist to show me how to snare a rabbit with my shoe string. This book is to help your electronics survive 2 possibly devastating events.Read more ›
