Format: Paperback
Covers all of the basic need to know stuff about prepping for a disaster which the average person living in the suburbs needs to know. Some of the best tips - buy a portable butane gas hotplate, a multifunction tool, duck tape, several fire starters and outside solar powered lights that can easily be brought inside. I like that they support the idea of people buying extra supplies of long shelf life foods they would normally eat and just rotating the stock so that it is used up before its use by date. I also like that they remind people how important it is to keep your head warm in extremely cold weather and that layered clothing is the best for keeping warm. I had never thought to store my special survival equipment in empty suitcases until I read this book. There are many great little gems in this book.

This pocket guide is realy good.
It dose state the obviouse in places but then its a comprehensive guide and as such it would be failing if didnt as not every one who buys this will be up to speed on the subject.

I would recomend it for every ones book shelf.
If your just dipping your toes into the world of prepping its a must.
If your preps are at an advanced stage as in my case it can still help you, "Im always keen to lern new or different ways of doing something"
Even if your not interested and have no intention of becoming a prepper this book will be of use as its full of life skills that most people seam to be missing thease days.

Dont expect it to teach you how to strip an clean an AK, light a fire with sticks, skin a donkey with the button from your jeans or build a retreat bunker with a cerial box and some tape, thats not what its about, this is a Preppers guide not a survival guide.
But it will help you organise your life and perhaps streamline your life admin skills, advise you on ways to prep for most eventualitys, understand the risks we face and how best to deal with them. Its presented in a step by step logical way, easy to follow and understand.

One of the top ten must have books on this subject, preferably bought first.

Product arrived well packaged and undamaged. Product itself is well written informative and researched well. Not written in a scaremongering fashion just offering good basic practical and inexpensive advice which is a welcome complimentary addition to other preparation.

Written by an experienced prepper, the author shares her experiences from first hand use and preparation for her family from a range of scenario's and actual disasters. This is a well written hand book for easy reading at night (or as my son said, handy for the toilet when you need a good read!)

It is American biassed, so for anyone in the UK/ Europe you are going to have to think laterally and apply the advice to your own country...our gun and dangerous weapons acts in the UK prohibit the use, ownership and carrying of offensive and dangerous weapons, but there are other guides on prepper websites that can guide you on self defence and defence of your property if you decide to bug-in in a SHTF situation.

It has useful links to US websites which looked interesting and might be used to add to the info in the book. One key part are the lists for new preppers, these are quite basic but comprehensive, especially if you are on a budget and don't want to look like you're in the army or special forces, this is a low key, practical guide book for everyone to consider about what to do when the SHFT.

Mostly just common sense. But as the saying goes, sadly, it seems to be not so common these days. This book just puts a bunch of rational thinking into one little book that can easily be carried. "Just in case". Can't hurt to browse through it from time to time, just so this info is ready to mind if you do need it.

Most preppers start with the lists - and after some years they have them developed into rather sophisticated spreadsheets. This pocket sized is a starter's book of lists, of little practical use to a matured prepper ,,,, but a great present to give to friends and neighbours who begin to show an interest in the topic.
