"It is a 200 page book. I got to page 73 (the beginning of Chapter 6) and it was all stories about events where water became scarce and how society broke down. That is more than 1/3 of the book on useless nonsense I can do nothing about, like water-borne diseases. Then the book goes on to advise that's common-sense, like fill the tub and every container you got.
The other 2/3 of the book reads like housewife advice--like how to wash your hands 101 and how to shop smart. My favorite is how to upgrade your shower head. If you are a prepper this book is not for you. Spend your money elsewhere."
Well said, "Amazon Customer". I only hope other serious preppers are listening.

There are no water collection designs in this book. There are no filtration designs. There aren't any methods detailing how to find water in the wild.
There are no charts or facts pertaining to water collection, filtration, treatment, storage or elimination.
If ever there was a product produced that was truly "false advertising" this waste of paper and ink is one of them.
The author owes me $15.
The most important thing to know before you buy this book is to realize that it is largely geared toward surviving short and medium-term situations where clean water is unavailable. Think hurricanes, local and regional water table contamination, and electric well pumps failing during a power outage. Someone looking for detailed instructions on how to get clean water during a long term grid down situation will likely be disappointed. The people who will get the most out of it are ones who know water is a weak spot in their preparedness plans but don't know what options are out there beyond bottled water and purification tablets. Still, water is such a vital prep that this is a book worth having on your shelf even if it's only to lend out to others.
It's kind of like, if the author titled a section "Lakes and Ponds," then she'd certainly write, "You can get water from lakes and ponds." And you'd want to say, "Ok! Wow, you thought of that, too?" Or like, she'd almost write that you should be sure to drink 8-10 full, tall glasses of pure water a day, and to drink whenever you feel thirst. One thing was, she wrote in a couple places that you shouldn't drink saltwater, and I thought it was a little dumb, that she was telling us what everybody knows. But then I thought, maybe it's really better in a way, after all, to mention it like that. You know, a smarter way to write on it, seems to me, might have been just to find out very specifically what happens to you when you drink saltwater, and tell us that. You know, what kind of symptoms and discomfort have people suffered from it, and how much drinking saltwater does it take to kill you. And then the author blueprint for us a couple practical ways to desalinate water.
Anyway, after reading the book more, I found there's a lot of good stuff in it that I'd bet that you'd think is pretty interesting, and you'd want to underline. You may not feel that all of it is something you think applies to you or something you want to use, but that's not saying much. Also, the book could give you a few more ideas of things to save up a few of.
You might have some of the same complaints I have about the book, but you also might feel that in a lot of ways, it straightened you out about water. She may not have nailed down everything you're concerned about, but there's stuff in here that could really help you.

It does have some information.
A quick easy read.
Too many stories and padding.
Glad to finish.
Will not be my reference book !!
If everyone bought this book maybe less deseases would spread.
If you need to set up a long-term rainwater harvesting and storage system, you need a more comprehensive reference.
