For a reader interested in preparedness, my suggestion is to buy the book, fully understand it's contents, then take the time to seek out the "modern" standard for each of the topical areas that Dr. Clayton touched upon. A person who does this, will find themselves far ahead of the pack if, and when, trouble comes.
Dr. Clayton did a pretty good job the first time around. Not perfect, but very good.
I consider this book one of the "MUST HAVE" books in any survival library. Not only does this book contain fantastic and interesting reading, but with its dozens of charts, lists, drawings and photos, this book serves as an excellent reference on surviving ANY major disaster. It is one of the few reference books I keep in my personal bookshelf beside the computer. When I read this book for the first time I was amazed by what I THOUGHT I knew. I was VERY wrong in many of my beliefs. Even the US government used Dr. Clayton's research to revise their policies in some areas.
Chapters covered include:
It's a disaster
Everything you ever wanted to know about nuclear war
To flee or not to flee
Home sweet hole
Nobody makes housecalls anymore
and MANY others that will keep you reading, and more importantly, will keep you alive no matter what the disaster.
In fact Clayton remains one of the most concise, intelligent, and useful sources for any individual, family or group contemplating the dangers of contemporary life. It is a shame that Dr. Clayton, to date, has not applied his energy, intellect and unique insight to updating his work with information addressing the changes in the threat/probabilities along with the advances in technology useful in survival situations. It has been almost 25 years, the world has changed dramatically and we have had some new experiences from which to draw lessons. Come on Dr. Clayton, how about it! Until the 2nd edition is published, this is still about the best general source for contemporary survival advice available.
If you are concerned about the possibility of any type of malfeasance befalling you and your loved ones this is the one of the first books you should read. It will give you a good background on how to deal with many issues you need to cover in order to survive: food & storage, selecting seeds and storage, planting, decontamination of people, food, & water. Security in the home, while in transit, defense of a fixed position, and things people often forget, like morale and fire safety, protecting communication devices from EMP.
The book even contains instructions on building air filters and pumps, and even Geiger Counters and Dose meters from house hold items. A must have for people concerned about the turbulent nature of the world today, or intellectuals who in joy learning for learning sake, this book is a must have for any collection!
