About the Author
Dr. Arthur Bradley holds a doctorate in engineering from Auburn University and currently works for NASA. Having lived all across the United States, he writes from personal experience about preparing for a wide variety of disasters, including earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, house fires, massive snowstorms, electromagnetic pulse attacks, and solar storms. He has been featured in the New York Times, Money magazine, the Toronto Sun, and numerous radio shows. Dr Bradley subscribes to the philosophy that preparedness should always be motivated by love and concern, never by fear and paranoia. His practical approach to family preparedness has received widespread praise from individuals, emergency preparedness groups, and religious organizations. He is the author of several highly acclaimed books on disaster preparedness, including the “Handbook to Practical Disaster Preparedness for the Family,” “Disaster Preparedness for EMP Attacks and Solar Storms,” and the “Prepper’s Instruction Manual.” He conducts free seminars around the world, teaching individuals and families how to establish effective disaster preparedness plans. His website, http://disasterpreparer.com, provides free information regarding practical disaster preparedness as well as discounts on his books.

I read this book on my kindle, but the print version comes in at 270 pages long, so this is no short and sweet pamphlet. What impressed me the most about this book is the amount of practical and helpful information found in each section of this book. While the sections aren't exceptionally long, the author manages to get the most important and basic information into each section so that the reader both understands the need and reasoning for that step and has some direction and specific actions that he or she can take immediately.
From Faraday cages to hardening your home and radiation safeguards to prepping your pets, this book surprised me with it's depth!
The "steps" are in alphabetical order rather than in any practical order of importance. It seems slightly amusing that becoming a ham is 30 "steps" before putting your financial house in order. Feel free to pick and choose the steps you read first.
Thankfully, the book is well formatted for the kindle with the ability to quickly switch between chapters/steps and access the linked Table of Contents. This is essential in a reference book, especially on that is organized alphabetically rather than for flow.
This book is highly recommended for:
- Beginner preppers who want an overview before they start
- Anyone looking for a poignant overview of a number of areas of prepping
- Intermediate and Advanced Preppers who want to fill out their prepping library
If you enjoy reading about survival and prepping, I also recommend Ultralight Survival: Make a Small and Light Bug Out Bag That Could Save Your Life for specific advice on creating the lightest and most efficient bug-out-bag possible.
If you enjoy reading about personal security and tactics, I also recommend Tactical Bible Stories: Personal Security Tips from the Bible for advice specifically for keeping you and your family safe in dangerous times.
Happy reading....you'll really like this book.
This is the insurance book everyone needs when the things that no one wants to happen, actually do happen. Whether it's during a hurricane, blackout, major floods, civil unrest, etc., will you have the means to provide for yourself and family? Probably not.
But this book is not just for being prepared for when the worst happens, it is packed with countless plans, suggestions and recommendations to protect yourself and prepare for the security of your family. The author starts with his Cardinal Rule: "the key to surviving any disaster is to, whenever possible, to get out of its way". Be prepared and get ready to take action.
You will learn how to administer first aid, calculate the amount of food needed for a proper 30 day supply, escape a house fire, store and filter water, care for your pets, the proper way to secure the windows & doors in your home, and much more. These are things that everyone needs to know, not just when a disaster happens but for every day.
When superstorm Sandy happened I was out of power for a full 14 days straight. I wish I lived next door to the author. He was prepared!
