I'm by no means a hard-core prepper; I am however, someone who believes in being prepared for what may come my way and this book is a great way to get started! It's meant for non hard-core, average Joe people (like me) who want to take care of themselves and their loved ones during times of crisis.

Start Prepping is a step by step guide to becoming prepared BEFORE an emergency, it's not a field guide for when you're neck deep in the thick of things!

Some books, TV shows and articles can make being prepared very overwhelming; while this book, Start Prepping, is just the opposite. The book is broken down into easy to follow steps starting with the most vital for survival, with check points at the end of each step that are designed to really make you think about your own personal situation and environment... Because as explained in the book, someone who lives in the city will have different immediate needs than someone who lives in the country and so on... The author also makes a point of talking about how survival is also a state of mind, and preparing your mind for survival is more important than having the survival "stuff". I hadn't really thought about it that way before, but is an example of one of the many ideas presented in the book.

Another thing that I really like about Start Prepping is that it's written in a way that's easy to read. It's not some boring manual that puts you to sleep the second you pick it up, the author has written it with personality and has added interesting stories that makes it much more entertaining to read.

All-in-all, I'm finding Start Prepping interesting, motivating, and packed full of extremely useful information and ideas. It's really worth the time to read it!

In recent years the term prepping or prepper has been associated with activities and individuals preparing for the EOTWAWKI (End of the World as We Know It). There are numerous scenarios; Electro Magnetic Pulse (natural or man-made) that wipe out the power grid, financial collapse and worldwide pandemic just to name a few. While these threats are real and most experts agree that it’s not a question of if, but when one or more of these events occur, Tim points out that catastrophic events occur all the time. Anyone who has seen the devastation of a tornado, a hurricane or wildfire would undoubtedly agree. In the area where I live power outages are not uncommon. Some have lasted as long as three weeks, and it’s not what I consider a rural area.
Events such as these are in the news almost daily, but a blown tire on a deserted highway could be just as devastating to those involved. Vehicles normally have a spare tire and jack, but how often do we check the tire’s condition or see if the jack will actually lift the vehicle? Who among us have the forethought to carry a first aid kit or a supply of drinking water? These simple things could turn a catastrophic event into a minor inconvenience.
Start Prepping is a complete, easy to read, common since guide to getting prepared for whatever might transpire. In ten steps Tim covers everything from developing a survival mindset in yourself and your children, to building a supply of stored food. All the necessities are covered and it is a welcome addition to my reference library.

As stated by others this is a very well-thought out book about prepping. Far and above any others out there. Very well-written, researched and easy to read. I am drawn to these type books as you just never know what natural disaster or violent incident could take place that could force us to handle life on our own for awhile. Did you know that most grocery stores only have food for 3 days? Think about what would happen if the power and water were cut off. If transportation failed. If you weren't able to get medicines, food, water, news? We as people today are sadly lacking in survival skills. We need all the help we can get. This book provides that. It's packed with great tips and hints...all easy to accomplish and common sense. There are lists that include items I never would have thought of and I'm fairly educated on the prepping idea. It's absolutely a MUST-HAVE for anyone alive today. Because you just never know when something will happen and you need to be prepared. HIGHLY recommended.

Many prepping books seem to be for those that interested in hard-core prepping for events that will wipe out all of humanity. This is a refreshing change in that it focuses on "short-term" prepping for a month or less. The author gives real-life, recent examples of situations in which this has been necessary, and breaks down prepping into categories the reader can easily manage. As a whole I found it too much to contemplate because it can seem overwhelming, but since it is broken down by categories such as water, food storage, electricity, etc., it doesn't seem so intimidating. Again, the real-life situations really helped the book hit home for me. I recommend to both read now and keep on hand to reference later.
