The biggest disaster was spending money on this book!
on 4 January 2008
I was very disappointed with this book! I have only given it 1 star because I had to for reviewing purposes otherwise I wouldn't have given it any.
If you are looking for an insightful book full of brilliant survival tips which enables you to plan for and survive disasters from earthquakes to floods and other emergency situations I would certainly not recommend this one. The advice given is very basic, often totally obvious to anyone except the most complete idiot, and appears to be backed up by a minimum of research or practical experience. The whole thing has the ring of an author who writes by formula looking for something to write about and simply jumping on the global warming bandwagon in order to make a few bucks.
I was looking for a book by an experienced survival expert which I would be able to keep in my emergency pack for survival situations. This one will be going in the bin. It only cost me a few pounds but I feel it was a few pounds wasted!
