The first part of the book gives a history of financial collapse and talks about what could happen in the future. Most people buying a book like this are probably already very aware of these possibilities.
Then the book moves on to a chapter on Debt Reduction and gives some extremely basic advice on financial management. You'd be much better off buying a Dave Ramsey book and following that plan. It will give you a LOT more information.
He includes a long chapter on currency, but I am at a loss after reading it as to why I'd want to bother with any foreign currencies. The author says himself that it is hard to predict which currencies might be used if the dollar fails - and I honestly don't see people accepting any paper money in a serious financial collapse situation. I thought this chapter was confusing and did not make a whole lot of sense.
So, basically, the first 86 pages of the book were a waste of time, in my opinion. Then I got to the chapters that were actually helpful [barter and trade goods, bartering skills instead of stuff, safeguarding valuables, & investing in self sufficiency]. Those chapters were very helpful and well written. I appreciated the information [and they are why this review is getting 3 stars instead of 1or 2]. But when you consider that the entire book is only about 150 pages long - not getting anything helpful till page 87 was a bit frustrating. I was left with the feeling that I would have been better off to google a couple of articles on this topic online for free than to pay the purchase price for this book.
The second half of the book goes into more traditional prepping advice such as homesteading and working toward self-sufficiency, but still with a financial slant. Jim Cobb is one of the most authoritative voices in the world of preparedness, and more people would do well to take his advice and get control of their finances now, before disaster strikes. This book is a great start in that direction for anyone interested in making sure they’re not victims in the future.
