The definitive guide to prepare for and survive any emergency or disaster. This is the manual for neophytes who don’t know where to begin and experienced preppers who want insight and tactics from the elite Special Forces. (Newly updated and revised).
This book lays out how to prepare for and survive from mild, to moderate, to extreme emergencies in a logical flow that moves from initial preparation you must do now through more advanced work, to action in the actual emergency.
The author has been in the Wall Street Journal, NY Times, Forbes, Psychology Today, Sports Illustrated, the Discovery Channel, the SyFy Channel and more.
From the very first page you will be more prepared. The book covers the Special Forces Area Study, the essential step that allows you to tailor your preparation for your specific situation and saves wasted energy and valuable time.
It then goes into preparation with specific actions and gear you need, starting with the basics we all should have, then delving into more advanced and specific. QR codes (print) and hyperlinks (eBook) direct you to examples of what you need, taking the confusion out of the process. Direct links to free Apps and informative web sites that can be life-saving and useful in everyday life are included.
Checklists for all preparation are in the book and in an appendix at the end with a downloadable link so you can keep track.
