I’ve heard great things about this book and decided to pick it up and see if there was anything worth looking into. You never know when an epidemic might happen so it’s always a good idea to know what you can do to protect yourself. I loved the intro to Ebola – it gave the book a certain amount of reliability knowing about things more in depth from the us government response to protocol etc – the information itself was very helpful. In general I really loved the formatting of the book – it goes from informative to educational and does a great job of making sure you know terms before diving in. This is a great book but definitely has me a little more fearful then I did before. I had no idea about half the things that could cause series outbreaks and for that knowledge can be scary but knowledge is also power. Great book.

With the recent Ebola outbreak causing tragedy after tragedy, the world has come face to face with the very real threat of a pandemic. Cat Ellis has written an excellent book outlining many different types of Pandemic scenarios and how best to deal with them, she has gone so far as detailing different diseases and their threat level. This book gave me practical knowledge about avoiding the contraction of various diseases as well as ways to prevent the spread of said diseases. From Influenza and Staph to the plague, this book covers it all. I think this is a great book to read, if only to better inform yourself on this very important topic.

In this book Cat Ellis has compiled a bevy of information regarding what to do in case of an infectious outbreak following a disaster. She details many types of pandemic diseases, which she divides from threat level 1 to threat level 3, which may occur, and what to do if modern medicine/facilities are not available. I love the amount of natural remedies and preventions there are in this book, and they are all explained in a no nonsense straightforward way. Of course, it's best to not get sick in the first place, and Ellis includes the most common ways of getting sick, and how to avoid them, for each type of sickness she covers. A good, informative, important book.

An excellent book for the beginning prepped or even those who think they are prepared. Ms. Ellis lays out the various needs and skills one may need for more than 72 hours of survival. From food to medical supplies, medicinal plants and preserving foods, and of course water. I plan to use this book in my disaster prep classes.

I had read another of Cat Ellis’ prepper books, “Prepper’s Natural Medicine “and I liked the layout and information presented in a straightforward, simple to understand manner. For this review, I was hoping I’d find similar traits. I was not disappointed. Sure, I’ve read a few other articles on the topic of pandemics & epidemics and some of the same info popped up, but what I learned easily outweighed what I already knew.

Starting with the recent Ebola patients in the USA, she gives us a breakdown of how/why it occurred and the media and governments responses along with how the public reacted. For me, this 1st chapter served as an outline of sorts for the rest of the book.

Chapter 2 is the most important chapter. You get the definition of pandemic vs epidemic (think global vs local), which are terms incorrectly used by the media. The rest of the chapter is an overview of current, new, and possible future outbreak diseases, bacteria’s, viruses, etc. You learn how it all spreads, how to deal with it, how to stay away from it even if it means not going to a hospital.

Chapters 3, 4, and 5 deal with threat levels I, II, and III, increasing in danger levels. Basically, from the flu to the plague and human error. These 3 chapters are going to be a great reference tool for everyone. Don’t rely on mass media or your Facebook friends to give you the correct life or death info in a time of crisis!

Chapter 6’s concerns are what may pop up after a pandemic winds down. An interesting chapter on its own, but it felt a bit repetitive or maybe it could’ve fit inside another chapter(s).

Chapter 7 is also very important, perhaps my second favorite, because it deals with what all preppers and/or survivalists should already be planning. Bug in? Bug out? Quarantine?

Cat is one of my friends through the Independence Outpost (Facebook Group) - I've always enjoyed her contributions. I don't think you will be disappointed with her book. It has quite a bit of depth to it and it's an incredibly fascinating read too. There is a tremendous amount of history and mistakes we've made from the past. The question is not if there will be another pandemic but only when and where it will happen. I highly recommend picking up this book, perhaps one of the few truly life saving books on the market today.

I love Cat Ellis's books. "Prepping for a Pandemic" is just as informative and easy to understand as "Preppers Natural Medicine" which is my go to manual, it is underlined, dog eared and stained. I consider these two books essential for anyone wanting to learn more about herbal medicine. I can't wait to see what's next.
