Product Description

Synopsis

Survival expert Cody Lundin is back with a no-holds-barred guide for city slickers on how to survive the next disaster, whether natural or man-made. Lundin offers a blunt and honest account of what every family needs to prepare for possible emergencies, from shelter, water, food, cooking, survival kits, and sanitation, to the emotional and mental capabilities that keep us from falling into full panic mode. Lundin delves into the making of the self-reliant mind, and helps people to understand not only what physical resources are necessary, but which mental and emotional resources are vital for survival as well. This book uses commonsense techniques and knowledge that will help anyone who wants to explore the idea of becoming more self-reliant.

I loved this book not only was it a good read, it was also informative interesting and a great way of thinking. This book although is primeraly perparing you for disaster and what to do in event of it, has undertones of a more free thinking self reliant individuals and thats the way i roll. This book is far from tin hat end of the world and more of a thought provoking positive attitude CAN DO book.

I would strongly advise a read of this book on a cold winters day and just see where it takes you.

Ok so this is not a book that is going to teach you how to track and hunt a meal, it's not going to teach you how to build a log cabin, nor dig a snow trench shelter because Cody Lundin presumes you have not just crashed into some sub tropical jungle nor are you sharing a plane with some rugby playing pals flying over the Andes. This is a book for normal people going about there normal lives who do not want to follow the James Wesley Rawles way of thinking that the government is out to get you (they are, but thats another review)

The first few chapters I still haven't been able to bring myself to read despite having re-read this book several times, they are far too hippyish for me. Not that they don't have anything to offer it's just that I have spent 18 years in Martial Arts and my self dependency differs somewhat from Lundin's. You will indeed require some mental skills in any disaster and although I have never been in such a situation I have tested my own metal by doing door work, self sleep deprivation and living off the land for two days with no supplies (yeah what a hero I am) I therefore found some long haired hippy telling me about the need to take responsibilty for my life, consensus decision making and self reliance was too much to stomach. This however is a recognition of my own predjudice rather than a reflection upon someone who has done far more than me and bears no reflection upon the book itself. If you have never been in a real situation be it violent or survival then the information about how stress affects you and your motor skills is a real opener for some and I have even used the said info in my own classes about complex surival/defence techniques.

Of half a dozen books on survival issues, this is my favourite, so far. It's all about how to survive at home, by someone who is a survival instructor, who lived on the streets for a while and who has practiced everything he preaches - for years.

Of some of the others I bought, The Self-Sufficiency Handbook is mainly for the UK and has excellent basic (but not too basic) suggestions that I found most useful, with sections on recycling, going off-mains including generating your own power, organic gardening, animal husbandry, brewing, and preserving produce.

Disaster Survival is compact and covers a very wide range of disasters but is boring. The First Aid Manual covered a wide range of accidents and had lots of pictures, which was good. Organize for Disaster was somewhat over-basic and US-centric but might be worth getting out of the library for a look (if they stock it). Life After Doomsday was so extreme I had to have some soothing rice-pudding while reading it, but if you have any reason to suspect long-term survival problems and looters/attackers, it is amazingly logical, sensible and practical.

This book and the Life After Doomsday book were the least boring to read and therefore their advice is most likely to be remembered, and hence useful, in case of need. However, both require weeks of expenditure and preparation.

I've always been concerned over how to survive in times of disrupted energy, food or water supplies. This book provides excellent advice in preparing for, and managing, survival when 'all hell breaks loose'. This is not a survival book in the bushcraft style, but it offers sensible and practical advice for your survival in times of power failure or scarcity of food and water.
A brilliant book.

Plus sides: This product covers a very broad range of topics and scenarios for the uninitiated.

Down side: I think if you have much existing knowledge of preparedness then the book will not add much to the sum of your knowledge. There are much better and more detailed web site articles on (for example) slow sand filter DIY water purification published by aid charities and free to download. If you are carefully pre-planning (and this book suggests, quite rightly that is what you should do) then a careful search of the net and books on specific topics (water, food storage, first aid etc) is likely to be more fruitful.

If you have no training or background in these sorts of topics then the book is a good starting point. I thought it expensive for the content and the promises made in the blurb but it very much depends on what your starting position is and why and how you need to acquire knowledge.

Not a Ray Mears type book,but full of positive practical tips for when all hell breaks loose.

This guy practices what he preaches and the bits on the pyschological effects of such traumatic
events made for sober reading.

Highly recommended.
