P&P is a wonderful book. Clear language, straight-forward presentation, paranoia-free assessments. The scenarios are concise and plausible, with the fictional elements interwoven into the non-fiction aspects very well (the story of Family Bill and the zombie event really pulled me in). This is a great read for preppers, yes, but also a perfect introduction for those unfamiliar with the prepping lifestyle, those considering it but are not sure how to start... or if it is needed.
Trust me, it is needed. Mr Newton lays that out quite succinctly, along with a presentation of the basics you need to get started.
As anyone who knows the author's Twitter feed can attest, Mr Newton also has a sharp wit, and that sense of humor is prevalent throughout the book - prevalent, but never overwhelming. To put it the parlance of humorists, "timing" is everything... and the author has that timing.
If you're looking for a dry, encyclopedic dissertation about every minute aspect of 'how-to" survival, this is not your book. If, however, you are looking for an enjoyable read that will inspire you, one which will detail the vitals while filling your mind with great ideas? Then yes, this is the book for you.
Now as an adult, I don't have to ask permission to watch such movies and can certainly purchase books on the subject that interests me without worrying where I'm going to hide it if my parents come into the room.
My purchase of Plan and Prep's "Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse" is actually a book that I would have made a hiding spot for just so I could read it over and over. Alex Newton, who has recently become more than an acquaintance to me, is the author that I am speaking of when I say, "this book is survival writing at it's finest". The reason is because there was more to the book than just the thought provocation and hands-on information. It was the illustrations.
The subject of zombies is a great talking point when introducing someone to the concept of prepping because many people are familiar with "surviving the zombie horde invasion". But other than the cover, how many people take the time to provide meaningful illustrations transposed directly from the author's zombie ladened mind?
The book starts by providing different emergency based scenarios in order to provide the reader a clearer picture of why one would even consider preparing for survival or fight an onslaught of zombies. From that point on, the reader is drawn into the journey of possible realities and what can and needs to be done to ensure they live through a possible real-life, catastrophic event.Read more ›
The author gives good advice on how to get started .The author is here to give you the basics and reminds the reader to always consider their particular circumstances when making detailed plans.
One thing I can say definitely from 18 years of covering awful things is that the author really hit the nail on the head when describing the differences between an Emergency and a Disaster . Emergencies are the immediate threat such as a tornado, which last seconds. Disaster is dealing with the tornado aftermath which can last for months and years.
This book is your first steps into the waters of being ready for anything ( Including Zombies which is a nice touch) This book gets you going in the right direction to keep you and your loved ones safe , the steps are clear and sensible .
I recommend this book because I have seen people who were not prepared to deal with emergencies and disasters . I am sure this book would have benefited those people ,so I am sure it will benefit you
