"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.
So I'll say this book is a great starting point, but ultimately does not contain all the information needed. You'll learn by reading it, but it is just shy of being a "one stop shop" for all your water - survival needs.
It's not a crazy thing to plan for disaster. Not even an apocalypse, but the chance that over the course of one's life, there could be a problem with having access to clean water. I already keep two gallons of water on hand, but I need to do plan for at least a gallon a day for at least two weeks. Luther shows the reader how to accomplish this without breaking the bank.
The biggest thing I took from Luther's book is to be prepared as use any resource availabe accordingly. Drinking water is obviously a big deal, buthe without water on hand for washing and sanitizing, a variety of issues can still arise, including death.
Not to end on a down note, there are things in this book anyone can use daily. If you travel, make sure you have plenty of water on hand (should be obvious, but...) and one can make their own homemade electrolyte drink in a pinch! No need for Gatorade when most people already have the proper ingredients in their home!
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.
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.
