Entertaining, and a Nice prepping intro
Written in an entertaining fashion, and nevertheless gives some good ideas about survival. I’m not a prepper by any means — far from it, I picked this book up really just for the price and entertainment value. However, it presented some good basic simple things to do that seem pretty worthwhile. Am I going to go so far as to start training with pistols, stockpiling secret caches of water and MRE’s all over the place? No. Am I going to make sure I have a basic water purification method and other basic supplies with me all the time? Yes. I don’t expect a zombie apocalypse, or even any specific disaster, but even without that making some general emergency preparations seems at least somewhat prudent.
One Word –> AWESOME!!!
this book was so entertaining and a little cheeky to boot. Now, do I believe the undead will be flooding the streets anytime soon… uh, I am not sure about that one… we will leave it at a maybe. Do I believe this book is helpful should this scenario ever play out… definitely. As for the reviewer that stated “nothing you can’t find online” … “gleaned from XYZ” … “written in teenage prose” I can kind of agree but was a somewhat weird review as 1) what can’t you find online these days (I for one don’t want to scour the internet all day as I prefer all of this information in one spot and entertaining as a bonus) 2) what isn’t “gleaned from” I mean how many truly original ideas exist but this work was an interesting twist for me and I recommend it. 3) written in teenage prose… don’t even know what to say I mean look at the topic… although that is somewhat not fair because I am not a teenager and found the book to be informative, enjoyable, and entertaining.
