No words are minced or wasted in this invaluable guide, everything from checklists of the necessities you will need to recipes for using foods that hold up to long term storage. How to set up a long term water supply, how to make an emergency use toilet that you can use for as long as you have too. Collecting proper containers for different uses that are covered in the book. I could go on and on explaining how cool this book is but I want this review to be more concise and not drag on and on . So I guess the best way I can explain this book in short words is to say it contains much more info than just food and water storage, it contains all the things to be prepared and have at your finger tips , things that you would never realize you needed until a crisis presented itself, it does this as inexpensively as possible ,lots of common sense here. (like how to make a serviceable toilet). Pure practical, must have day to day needs to will wish you had but probably would never think of until a super crisis hit and suddenly there was the need for something basic and immensely important staring you in the face. The book preps us for that so we can be well prepared and better safe than sorry. If you purchase no other guide for keeping your family safe in a crisis, get this one.
I think that the title is misleading. It might help you buy things to prepare for an emergency, but since all the advice is how to buy, store, and some simple recipes, it wouldn't help you in a survival situation. For example, there is only a 1/4 page on dehydrating food, it tells you nothing other than you can buy nice dehydrators and to follow their instructions. There is also lots of space taken up with "fill in the blanks" record keeping. Not a total waste of money, but not a good book for practical food preservation advice.
But there were quite a few tips in this book that I thought made purchasing it worthwhile, and the price is less than $20, which I felt was reasonable for the information given.
The author gives lots of ideas for how to cheaply increase food storage space in your home, like under your bed, and how to make or buy inexpensive shelving for large amounts of canned goods.
The inventory planning chart was mostly filler pages and something I could have done with a wire-bound notebook.
The checklists were good-- the author basically has long lists of all the items you should have in your home at all times.
I would recommend this book, and enjoyed reading it.
