Product Description

About the Author

One night a father overheard his son pray: Dear God, Make me the kind of man my Daddy is. Later that night, the Father prayed, Dear God, Make me the kind of man my son wants me to be. That passage summarizes who I am. My family, and the experiences we create, is reflected in my life and writings. My family is the reason I prepare for either a Shit Hits The Fan (SHTF) or Significant Life Altering Event (SLAE). They are my “everything”.

Formally, my name is Bryan Foster, penname Zion Prepper, and I hold a MS – Chemistry, MS – Management, MBA, and BS – Forensic Chemistry. I’m a Christian, husband, father, author, and Navy veteran. My books include: "Ebola Survival Guide", "The Prepper’s Handbook – First/Second Edition”, “The Christian Prepper’s Handbook – First/Second Edition”, “The Prepper’s Survival Guide: An Introduction to Prepping and a Guide to Fire”, "The Survival Triangle: Fire", and “The Prepper’s Survival Guide: Sheltering-In-Place”.

A good introduction to a complex subject. Worth a look if you're new to prepping but a lot of this stuff can be found on line for free.

not a bad guide book but a bit expensive for 80 pages only gives a brief outline
could have gone into more detail. Good fast delivery service from supplier

Once again, although written mainly for the American market, the instructions/ideas given are easily adapted for the UK.
Very informative.

Save your money 2 Feb 2012
By Woody - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The ten bucks will do you more good in your prep stash than this book. This is strictly for beginners, and I gave it three stars for beginners. If you want to plan for natural disasters this is a fair start; if you want to plan for SHTF this is not the book by any means.

If you want to plan for SHTF then I would suggest a cheaper alternative, the internet. There have been a couple SHTF's in recent history, for instance Argentina's financial collapse and the Bosnian war. There are many REAL survival stories from both of these on the internet and from them you will learn what it's really like, (this books author does not know what its really like, he's a pilgrim) and you will learn a lot more.

If you want a good useful book I think one on outdoor survival techniques would serve you better than this. Lastly, I'd recommend if you are really serious, tape your refrigerator shut, tape your toilets shut, turn off your water, shut off all electrical everything (except your frig, no need to damage good food for an experiment) and shut off anything running on gas. Try that for a weekend and you'll be a lot smarter than you are now. Primitive campers will do better than most, but it will be eye-opening for all. While you're drinking out of your hot water heater you'll wish you had that survival book to read since there's no internet. You'll wish you had a camp toilet and a LOT of garbage bags, but you'll be learning real fast. If you're in a cold climate, don't do this when the pipes could freeze, but realizing they will freeze and what might flood, what might be damaged, should be part of your learning knowledge. With no TV or internet you'll have a lot of time to think, and to think about the problems associated with every season in your area.

This little exercise will drive you nuts in a few hours and you'll turn everything back on, but you'll still be smarter. Make some adjustments and try it again and see if you can go 24 hours next time, then 48, and so on until you can go a whole week, that's graduation for most people.

5 STARS - A Great Handbook - A must have for any prepper new or experienced 17 April 2012
By Ms. Penn - Elementary Teacher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I started prepping a few months ago but did not understand the concept and terminology of the prepper language.
This book explains that terminology and is very easy to understand. Some may say this is a book for beginners. It
was the basics and more. I enjoyed all that the book had to offer. I say 5 STARS! Buy it!

The Prepper's Handbook - for sure 27 Jan 2012
By Glitch-Dad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great read. If you keep in mind that it's suggested guidance on how to think about and approach prepping and not a strict mandate on how to prep, you'll do just fine. I wasn't getting much push back on doing the prepping, just not so much support. After my wife read the book, I've got a lot more support.

bare basics 15 July 2012
By Shannon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It's not bad as a bare basics book. I expected more information out of this book. It only re-worded what I already knew, but it is nice to have it in print. Not a bad book for someone starting out. For the basic information it does provide it's a 3 - 3.5 star book.

The most general of guides, more of an outline. 3 Dec 2012
By Kamai silber - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found this guide to prepping to be extremely basic. I have had an interest in prepping for a while, but I am not much of one yet. Got through this in about an hour on my flight. I believe this guide would be alright for someone with almost no idea what prepping is. If you are buying this as a gift for someone unsuspecting maybe. But if you have any general interest or common sense you already know more than this book. As I got further into the guide it seemed more like an essay written for a class. Many topics were covered but merely used listed as bullet points or just touching on the subject.
