I’ll start this review with what I would normally say at the end. Upon finishing Mr. Hogwood’s book, I immediately ordered a hard copy version. I could have easily printed the PDF provided, but 1.) I felt that the time, effort and expertise put into creating this handbook WELL merited my money. 2.) I want to have a compact, easy-to-carry version available for reference.
First, don’t let the page count discourage you. When I received my copy, I groaned. 350 pages on Survival Groups? Can’t this fit into 30? Trust me when I say that there’s not a wasted word in the handbook, and that’s coming from a writer known to waste a word or two—here and there. With that said, you can’t expect to read this in one sitting. It’s 1.) Too important of a topic. 2.) Covers every aspect of survival group dynamics you can imagine. This book needs to be read in stages and sections, giving you time to reflect on the subjects presented
Survival group basics and dynamics are an often-overlooked topic in the readiness discussion. Naturally, we gravitate toward gathering gear and preparing our environment for disaster. It’s more immediate and you can easily measure your progress. But if you think about it, you’ll always be in a group, whether it’s with family, friends or neighbors. The principles in this book apply to all of these groups, tailored for each of them…and Mr. Hogwood goes far beyond that to prepare you for larger, more purposeful survival groups.
Here are some of the concepts addressed…I stress the word SOME. There’s a wealth of information and reinforced ideas.Read more ›
We would all like to think that we know enough; that "common sense" will see us, and those we love, through any situation.
But if common sense was all that common - we would never be in a TEOTWAWKI situation to begin with.
This book covers those bases that might be missing, or not so common.
The Survival Group Handbook was of particular personal interest because it deals with the single biggest issue of concern for us ... Prepper Group versus Lone Wolf Prepper. I have read dozens of survival guides and all stress the same point: "You can't go it alone ... there is strength in numbers ... the lone wolf dies but the pack survives." Charley Hogwood deals with this subject in great detail through his detailed analysis of concerns to Preppers and his concept of M.A.G.'s, a Mutual Assistance Group for survival.
I strongly recommend The Survival Group Handbook. I urge you to purchase a hard copy as it will be an excellent reference manual when the lights go out ... permanently!
