"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"

Susan Gast lives in Sunny Florida with her ever-patient and ever-encouraging husband, an adopted Miniature Pinscher (who runs the house), lots of fresh and dehydrated food, two food dehydrators, one vacuum-sealing machine, a couple of computers, and reams of scribbled notes on the backside of previously printed paper!

This is not really a prepper book, though. This is for anyone who doesn't want their garden produce to go to waste, or likes the idea of buying a bushel of fruit or vegetables when it's in season, and storing it for eating when it goes out of season. The directions are easy and well written. I REALLY appreciate that so many types of fruit and vegetables are talked about individually, and no chemicals are involved, so that organic food remains organic.
It blew me away to learn that you can dehydrate melons, I mean, really? That's great. One disclosure here; I haven't tried any of this yet. Dehydrators aren't cheap, so I wanted to get a book first, but I'm ready now. While I love canning as much as the next person (especially bread and butter pickles), this method of food storage is a wonderful alternative, especially if the power were to go out for days and you can't keep frozen food frozen.
Kudos also to the author for the professional look to this eBook. A lot of them have formatting that makes them a pain to read. This one is a pleasure.
The one drawback is also a positive, so it kind of cancels itself out. That one thing is that every single instruction for dehydrating every single fruit or vegetable is basically the same, with few difference(s), and the last paragraph reminds you to rotate trays for even drying and a couple of other things. This becomes rather repetitive and annoying if you are reading this as a book. HOWEVER, since the table of contents is interactive and navigates the way it should, you have the option to click on the name of the fruit/vegetable you are interested in reading about, and it takes you right to it, so you are not seeing the same instructions over and over.
Well done, author, and if you are new to dehydrating/putting up your own food, this is a great resource.
