The latest book offered by M. D. Creekmore is called The Prepper's Guide to Surviving The End of the World as We Know. This useful guide quickly and easily covers the full range of essentials in stockpiling and equipment from water, food, and tools to medicine, communications and weapons.
It's a 176-page book that it is chock full of really good advice about the most important areas. A big benefit of such an accessible book is to get a quick overview of essential preparedness so you can see where you might have gaps in your own setup. No single book can cover everything in complete detail so this "primer" includes recommended reference books in each topic--all of which appear to be practical, useful books for rounding out your reference library.
Within his guidelines are a few nuggets of in-depth reviews, like his personal experience with hand grain grinders and animal traps. We were glad to see the he got water purification issue right: he first recommends filters and only reluctantly chemicals.
I would probably have done the medical section a bit differently, but at least, he does mention natural and alternative remedies and sources. Most people forget about preparing for dental problems and he mentions some good options there. His comprehensive coverage of what makes a good Bug Out Bag is worth the price of the book alone, and comes complete with pictures of the type of gear he uses to prepare for a quick exit.
This is an excellent guide for everyone. He adds a lot of practical, tactical advice to his lists which is very valuable even if you are advanced in your preparations. It is nice to "compare notes" with other experts. The book is rooted in practical advice and is quite motivating because of the concise way he cuts through the clutter of unknowns.

Those of us who have been around for a number of years know the importance of being prepared for any catastrophe, whether it's the loss of power in the middle of winter, or being unable to get to a grocery due to weather. So we have always made sure we were prepared to survive for at least a few days. You don't have to consider yourself a prepper to take common sense steps to ensure your survival and the survival of your family. Once you learn to survive for a few days, then it's not that much of a stretch to prepare for much longer periods if necessary. With this book, you can learn to do both. I highly recommend it, as well as M.D. Creekmore's blog at: [...]
