You need this book more than you even know. Without it, you’re roadkill. Lucky for you, Forrest Griffin is the perfect apocalyptic chaperone. From spotting the signs of the global downfall to alienating your loved ones now so they don’t come looking for you after, to hot-wiring a car to starting a religion in your own image, Griffin provides you with all the hot knowledge you need to survive the downfall of civilization. Simply put, this is the most important book about the apocalypse that you will ever read by a UFC fighter from Georgia.

I would have still given it 3 stars, except the photo spread in the middle killed it for me. The guy has a half dozen pages to fill full of photos. He could do a series of funny shots like the cover. He could do some random and strange shots. He could at least have hired a professional photographer. Instead, it appears to be a random collection of camera phone snapshots that look like they were selected at random from that guy we all know that thinks-he-is-way-more-interesting-than-he-is and posts waaaaaaay too many selfies on his Facebook page. Random photos that mean nothing to anyone that isn't the author or one of his buddies. A serious waste of the prime real estate of the book.
It never made it to wrapping. I cracked it to read a page, and I got hooked in by a quiz about "when you eat your friend". I smiled openly (and I am female) and proceeded to read out loud the inlet of the cover.
My husband loves survival-ism, it's a happy distraction for him since he is disabled. He has a packed/stocked "bug out bag" in our house for the both of us, and our dogs.
Also, as a former fighter/Master martial artist, he loves Forrest Griffin. I hear about him being from the same state as us... never ending MMA or UFC facts.
I had no idea that this book existed, but Amazon led me to it.
Forrest Griffin made my husband smile... that alone is worth the 17 dollar price tag!
