I live in a first strike hurricane zone and to put it plainly, Katrina took off my roof. That said, as a child who grew up during the Cold War, I never expected to live past 30. I was sure that we'd be nuked. Then when Orson Welles warned us that Nostradamus predicted 1998 to be the end, I fully believed that it would be. It was all nonsense, yes, but here in my mid-forties now, I still have a nagging worry that something may happen. Not zombies, but something.

All that said, my husband and I are looking to rely less and less on technology and more and more on ourselves and nature. My hope was that this book would be a good start in the right direction. It's too bad that it was disappointing.

I have read that blistering review here that had some reasonable arguments and some not so much. For example, it is true that there are fire bans in certain parts of this country but in a serious disaster, police will be incapable of enforcing those bans during a serious crisis. Survival is key, despite fire bans. I'm not going to die because someone has banned fires.

My problem however is with all the advice but at the same time all the secrets. For example she says (not exact words but you'll get the meaning) "You can buy a certain manual washing machine for $60," and leaves it at that. A certain one? How do I find it? Where did she see it? We'll never know because she does not share any of her resources. I mean none of them.

How many of us get books on hobbies and in the back it has a list of online stores where you can get supplies? This is supposed to be a book about disaster readiness and she doesn't have a list on where to obtain supplies. Really?

I appreciate her efforts and there is indeed a lot of helpful information. I just think she needs to share a little more of her knowledge that she was unwilling to do for whatever reason. I seriously doubt product (or business) placement applies here, for the very reason those craft and hobby books ARE able to share their suggested suppliers.

Perhaps this can be an addition in a future edition. My advice is that it IS handy, but get a book that has resources too.

My family is into the whole preppers thing and I was watching a documentary on either the History Channel or Discovery and it led me to this book. The author of this book was on the documentary and the information that she was giving was sound so I decided to check out her book. This book is delivered in a non-threatening way which is difficult with this subject. Yes, it does go over situations that would lead one to need this book but it also works on a more practical level as well as world wide. For instance what to do in a power outage is covered in this book. This book also has information in case of a world wide or nation wide disaster as well. Beyond how to prepare this book also covers things like farming and starting over again. I got this book for my brother for Christmas and he really appreciated it. We all took turns flipping though it and again is realistic, practical, in a format that will not cause a panic attack.

Just finished this book and loved it so much I ordered a copy for my daughter (she can't have mine:)). The author shares a lot of valuable information in this book. It's clear she has been doing this for a while. The book is not perfect and is certainly lacking in some areas. I still gave it 5 stars just do to the fact that despite it's shortcomings the information provided is well worth the cost of the book and while she may not cover everything in depth she touches on just about everything (concerning emergency preparedness not self-sufficiency) which makes it a nice guide to have. I appreciate the fact that she shares some of her mistakes that she has made along with her successes. I also liked that she was budget conscious throughout the book. Shes does provide a number of links as well as book recommendations to supplement the material. I certainly did not expect it to be 100% comprehensive given the massive size of the topic. It definitely gave me some great ideas and also got me thinking about what all I should be focusing on. It's a great book for basic emergency preparedness. Not so much a great primer for SHTF scenarios. An example, would be the fact that there was no real discussion of the fact that after a few days of a major shutdown when people who have not prepared start getting hungry, that you will be a target. or that when you evacuate you may run into people setting traps to ambush you. These are not pleasant things to talk about and if that is not her bag nor her cup of tea (and clearly it's not), I think those subject are important enough to at least bear mention. I would have liked to seen more information concerning dealing with a pandemic as well. She mentions that a filter mask is worthless (I'm not so sure how true that is) but there no mention of gas mask filters. In short, I think she covers well the things she has personal experience with. Stocking water and food, canning, non-electric alternatives for cooking and lighting, and gives you enough information to provide you with a framework of other information you will want to study further. Just buy it. Related note: I had bough The Prepper's Pocket Guide at the same time and while I haven't read through it all in detail, I can say right of the bat that I'm much more impressed with this book than that one.
