5.0 out of 5 stars Home Defence - Start Here!, 27 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Prepper's Home Defense: Security Strategies to Protect Your Family by Any Means Necessary (Preppers) (Kindle Edition)
This book was provided to the Ministry of Zombies for review purposes.

Here in the UK we having saying that `an Englishman's home is his castle' - well, in this volume Jim Cobb looks over our defense plans. As you read, you can't help checking over your own house, there are plenty of weak spots & top tips in here & it's the perfect place to start.

The author puts everything in context with an excellent opening chapter on security concepts & operations - with an acronym guide which is worth learning - for example, I never knew what CCW or SA meant! Layered defence, funnelling, structure hardening - if you are interested in prepping or just home security because you live in a bad area - this stuff is gold dust.

However, I will say it's not an overly heavy read. The text is broken up with a few pictures but it's mainly the ordered layout which really helps. There is also a great chapter on prepping with kids.

This book is not designed to be consumed in a few days - there's just too much information. I had my copy laid out on the table & took notes as I read. My copy has scribbled stuff in the margins, pointers to check on things - I think this is way it's meant to be with this. It would be great if they combined this with its sister volume The Prepper's Complete Book of Disaster Readiness & they released them in a A4 sized ring binder - now that would be cool.

Overall, this is really solid & well-researched book. You can feel the effort, knowledge & experience that went into it. It's like having a little version of Jim Cobb sitting on your shoulder advising you as he's done on the web for a long time.
