I love the short, well written chapters with a practical disaster scenario, solutions, lists, pictures and a place for notes. This format helps me not to become overwhelmed. My biggest challenge is understanding, for example, how my solar powered generator will hook up to a 12V battery and what it can run and for how long. It is Greek to me but that is not the author's fault.
Being prepared is so much more than having a stocked pantry. This book breaks down 50 steps that I can manage and prioritize as I feel necessary, and as I have the funds.
The best way for me to not fear (or deny) the possibility of a disaster is to be prepared. Without this book, I wouldn't really know where to start.
The format of the book (50 subdivided, concise topics & chapters) greatly kept my interest. Nothing was left out yet there weren’t pages of boring irrelevancy, either. It's a perfect balance, which I’m sure seems easier to do than it really was.
It is fantastic book that will help out many lives and very likely save a few.
The book is very practical. One of the most helpful aspects are the comparison tables to show what our options are for a given aspect and the pros and cons of each option.
I highly recommend this book and I have already started following its advice.
Arthur Bradley's other books will find a way on my bookshelf in the coming months.
