Having learned that Congress considers this a book all Americans should read, I bought it. I've had a mind toward prepping ever since I read Lucifer's Hammer, probably 25 years ago. This book takes you a step further into the psyche of survival. I marvelled at the ill-prepared, was impressed by unique ideas, and was numbed by the vast destruction.
My biggest disappointment is that Congress and the Pentagon have discussed this book, consider it a "must read" even. Yet, I just heard about it this week, roughly 10 years later. Have they acted? No. Have they encouraged the American ppl to prepare? No.
The average American lives 3 days to hunger. What would you do to protect your family from those who would kill them to feed their own family?
Most people say "Anything!!"
But they won't store rice, beans, oats....they don't own a water filter or know how to build one.
You'd steal and kill ... but you won't prepare.
And I'm the weird one.
READ THIS BOOK.
Then read Lucifer's Hammer.
Then DO SOMETHING!
I dont think people truly realize our reliance on power and its affect it was taken away. Tell me do you have enough medication to last more than one month? Do you have enough food to last if you cant get to a store, of if the store is out and wont be restocked? Do you know how to grow your own vege garden? Obtain water from a creek and boil it? Do you know how to hunt, fish, protect yourself in times of danger?
Even if you live in a great neighborhood and know your neighbors and friends well, do you know how they would react in a dire emergency?
I want to think that we would take care of each other, but one never knows what we as humans will do when faced with true hunger.
I would suggest and EMPHASIZE that everyone have a plan. North Korea is a larger danger than people realize. You dont want to be caught with your pants down. Plan now.
He said that it terrified him, and made him feel secure in knowing that there are ways to protect one's family simply by learning about various little survival techniques. All I know is that as soon as he finished this book, a brand new shelving unit appeared in our garage, followed closely by roughly 50 gallons of assorted water bottles and jugs snugly fit within.
He really enjoyed this book, said I should give it 5 stars and recommend it to other preppers or people genuinely interested in an exciting book about survival.
