Never with this much conviction have I recommended that a book must be purchased and read from cover-to-cover.
-- Daisy Luther, TheOrganicPrepper.ca
Tess not only writes about preparedness, she lives it. The Prepper's Blueprint is packed with advice from an experienced prepper and is exactly what is needed in these crazy times!
The Prepper's Blueprint provides novice and experienced preppers with a ready set plan to get prepared, complete with "Preps to Buy" and "Action Items." You won't find a more wide range of information in a compact format anywhere else. I highly recommend The Prepper's Blueprint!
-- Todd Sepulveda, Prepper Website - PrepperWebsite.com
Being prepared for the unexpected is sensible, but it isn't always simple. In The Prepper's Blueprint, Tess Pennington sets out elementary steps that anyone can take, even those on tight budgets or living in small spaces. Her suggestions are practical and prudent, and she avoids the hype and scare tactics so common on survival websites and in many survival books. Tess is a pro with a thorough understanding of what it takes to survive. I highly recommend The Prepper's Blueprint."

Not often do I read a book that offers a practical, common sense plan for building self-reliance and preparedness for the common man and woman. Some writers in our niche rehash gloom-and-doom theory but fail to lay out action steps for Doing the Stuff on our journey to self-reliance.
There are a ton of prepping books out there and when you have read and reviewed as many as I have, the lines of distinction start to blur. This book is different and will surely become one of the most useful and valuable prepping books in your library.
From the Author
For the last few years, many readers have asked me for a downloadable version of my online series, 52 Weeks to Preparedness. As much as I wanted to turn the series into a pdf, I wanted it to be more - much more. I wanted to add even more information and organize and transform it into a book that encompassed all forms of disasters - both big and small. I even changed the name to The Prepper's Blueprint to help readers understand that preparedness isn't just about having a plan, it requires drawing out a blueprint to set a preparedness foundation you can build upon and rely on when the time comes.

We never know when we may have to "get by." We just had a very large earthquake here in the S.F bay area (Napa, CA). It knocked out power and water. Many people rushed to the store to buy water and, since they had no power and couldn't cook, many families left their homes to find a place to eat. There were problems because many stores and restaurants were closed. The roads were damaged. The local news reported that the roads were jammed. The earthquake left some homes uninhabitable. The news reported that the people who were unable to return to their homes had no idea what to do. They evidently hadn't given it much thought until the earthquake left them homeless. Flooding, earthquakes, hurricanes: bad things can happen to anyone. Tess Pennington's book will help you be prepared.
As I said, Tess provides all the information for free on her web site. That is very unusual. Most preparedness sites charge a lot of money for the information they provide. Although I have already read all of the information on her website, I felt this book would be a wonderful addition to my library. It also makes a great gift. I do want to note that "The Prepper's Blueprint" isn't a slick polished book. There are no glossy pictures and some readers might criticize the writing style. None of that matters to me. I believe this is one of the best, well thought out books on the market. Tess has covered every facet of preparedness and I believe the book is both thought-provoking and well worth the cost.
Normal, everyday common sense should tell you that the rule of three's is what will end life as we know it. Three minutes without air, three days without potable water or three weeks without food is what will kill off mankind as we know it. Hurricane Katrina proved it on a small scale.
What if the power grid fails. Pick a reason, be it a solar flair, a computer attack, a failure of equipment or whatever else causes it, the result is the same. In three days the grocery stores are empty and deliveries are not being made. You cannot access your money. Gas stations stop pumping gas when they run out or the generators fail. Three days after the food stops arriving at the Winn Dixie, the chaos begins. Although 80% of the population will expect the government to arrive and feed them and to save them, Hurricane Katrina proves that those 80% will die sitting on the curb waiting for the government to arrive or in the unrest and anarchy that comes with hunger, thirst and the need to feed your children and family.
This book will help you to prepare for almost every scenario and put you in the protected class. Preparing for the governments failure to be able to save everyone is only doing what you grandparents and their parents did on a daily basis. You protect your kids, yourself and your family from the horror of a world out of control. Step back two or three generations and be as prepared as your grandparents and their parents were.
This book gets you to where you need to be and helps you prepare for any possibility. Prepper means prepared. Be prepared to protect your family from whatever may happen in the future.
It will take you a while to read the whole thing because there is a lot there - but take the time and read every word. Its so worth it if you want to become prepared. Its even a great book if you've been prepping for a while the way I have - it gave me a much needed fresh perspective.
