And for the person/family that's new to prepping, it breaks it down in a way that is totally manageable and not scary.
As a military veteran and now international business traveler, I've traveled the world and lived in many different states and countries. These experiences put me in direct alignment with 3 natural disasters (hurricane, earthquake, & tornado) as well as civil unrest, multiple home break-in's, and long-term utility & water outages. It's one thing to survive an emergency situation or natural disaster but it's the aftermath that most people (including myself) grossly underestimate. If I knew then what I know now, I would definitely have prepared and educated myself more proactively with this book.
This book is a keeper! It's not the kind of book you read then put on the shelf to collect dust. It's one that will initiate a life-saving dialogue with your family & friends, in addition to being a staple in your emergency safety kit and/or bug out bag.
There are many, and I mean MANY, pages of blank forms. I think the addition of blank form pages was over used and were quite frankly used for filler pages. Many copies of the same form is a waste. The author should have provided a sample form the each applicable topic and then let the reader build/print/use their own forms that fit their needs and/or situation.
The other book that beginners should have would be MAGS by Charley Hogwood, which covers the dynamics of the people part of preparing and is also a good book on leadership as well. Anyone would find these three books quite helpful in their journey to become better prepared and I think the perfect place to start or improve on where you already are.
The one thing that I believe would improve the usefulness of this book would be to: 1) either include a CD or 2) provide a web link to where the reader/user could download and print out the worksheets and useful lists inside of the book. I did ask the author about it and I hope there might be a way of this happening in the future.

This seems fine for someone who has never given a moment's though to Prepping. It was a bit redundant with the rest of my collection. Read morePublished 12 months ago by ockat
