This book is a great beginning on understanding the logic of preparedness and the fundamentals of survival. The information is still current and the author's assesment of what a nuclear war might really be like is the single best feature of the book. I did not believe it until a read the same information from the Office of Technology Assesment [U.S. Goverment Publication] "Nuclear War; Three Scenarios"

I went on a splurge of survivalist books as a result of the August 2011 riots in London. Such riots are not a new phenomenon as senoir Police officers in th eMet would have you believe, the author locates a similar disturbance in New York in 1856. However he classifies it as a disaster man made. From there he goes on to expound what you can do about the way a disaster will run and it all comes down to basic preparedness and what you need to be prepared with and for. You can get out of Dodge or hunker down and he explains the options and the dilemmas. Geographically this book is set in the USA but its premises are valid worldwide as examples show. Yes it does deal with "guns" in a short chapter and the advice is distilled and I will distill it even further - your starting point is a pump action shotgun take it or leave it and if you are leaving it do not bother with the rest of the arsenal. There are other things to worry about.

This is THE best book on the subject of Nuclear war and other major disasters I have ever read. Dr. Clayton walks you through everything nuclear, from effects of air bursts, ground bursts, EMP, to every other nuclear topic imaginable. While famous for its nuclear information, this book is writen as a primer to surviving ANY disaster. Our Motto here at Alpha Group is(as you know) "It doesn't matter what causes the situation, you should be prepared to survive it". This book fits perfectly with that philosophy.
I consider this book one of the "MUST HAVE" books in any survival library. Not only does this book contain fantastic and interesting reading, but with its dozens of charts, lists, drawings and photos, this book serves as an excellent reference on surviving ANY major disaster. It is one of the few reference books I keep in my personal bookshelf beside the computer. When I read this book for the first time I was amazed by what I THOUGHT I knew. I was VERY wrong in many of my beliefs. Even the US government used Dr. Clayton's research to revise their policies in some areas.
Chapters covered include:
It's a disaster
Everything you ever wanted to know about nuclear war
To flee or not to flee
Home sweet hole
Nobody makes housecalls anymore
and MANY others that will keep you reading, and more importantly, will keep you alive no matter what the disaster.

Kindle version is almost unreadable. Shame because the content that you can read is quite good and informative.
