    I initially read this book over 15 years ago. Enjoyed the audio just as much today.

    Thanks again, Mr Rawles

    A guide for the 1% so they can survive after they destroy our civilization, while the rest of us with finite resources die because we can't make enough income to buy elaborate bunkers and survival gear before SHTF.

    After recently reading S M Stirlings Emberverse series and liking it (at least the 2 first books in each series), I decided to look into the survival literature, just in case 'what if' happened. Wesley's book describes how you prepare for a doomsday scenario where government and facilities such as electricity, fuel and food deliveries, and communication breaks down. His advice is to live in a place that can be self-sufficient for years, and that is defendable against rioters and other criminals when law and order is no more. He describes in details which food items that store well, what medicines to keep on hand, where to get training in First Aid, canning, shooting, and how to learn how to barter (and what to barter with). The beginning of the book was OK, but I was lacking details for many things when it comes to food production, preservation, and medical issues. Most of the book is focused on details in radio communication, weaponry, and defense tactics. I realize that such knowledge and tools might become a way of surviving, but in the end, what will matter is if you can feed yourself for a longer time. Of course this book includes a lot of right-wing frenzy, but the truth is that many of us could be much better prepared for a week or more without power, water, and ways of communicating - sitations that have and will continue to happen based on hurricanes, storms, and other such events. For example, more of us should know first aid. But going to army surplus and buying razor wire for cash (so it can't be traced) and hiding old silver coins in the walls when the dollar is gone, that is not really my thing. But apart from the fear-mongering, there are some really good advice in it. I wish he had included more summaries such as tables and been somewhat less repetitive with his favorite abbreviations. The third, forth... fiftieth time he uses WTSHF (when the shit hits the fan), it is kind of tiresome. One interesting fact I learned was that dried wheat kernels can be stored for 30 years if they are in moisture and vermin-proof containers.His best advice overall are:1. Don't become overly dependent on gadgets.2. Learn First aid.3. Buy tools that last, which are usually older tools. 4. Don't assume that you have access to anything in the rest of society. Be as self-sufficient as you can.

    Rawles does a good job of laying out the basics for emergency preparedness in this introductory book. If you take his premise seriously, you will probably want to read a dozen other books for each one of the chapters he includes in this primer. Water, Food, Fuel, Electricity, Shelter, Guns, ect...I don't necessarily have the same level of conviction in many of his emergency forecasting scenarios, for example, this book was written in 2009 and he mentions a few times that within a matter of months the economy is going to likely be run into the ground by inflation and national debt. Hmmm, that hasn't happened yet. He also seems to believe that secular humanists don't believe in moral absolutes which is strange to me. But for the most part, this is a practical place to start looking for ideas and advice when considering emergency preparedness and it certainly got me thinking about a lot of different "what ifs", especially since we live in prime earthquake country.

    I started this book reading parts of it out loud to my husband because quite a bit of what the author was saying made perfect sense. Then the more I got in to the book the more I realized that most of us would be toast if the End of the world as we know it happened.
    I don't know a single person who has the income for this much prepping. The author suggests that if you live in a city or even 300 miles from a bigger city that you probably need another place to go for your survival.
    Food storage..I just thought I was a hoarder. The amounts of food for this is unreal to me. I would be in a panic just worrying about what to do with it all.
    So overall-decently entertaining. But I am not bugging out anytime soon. If the Zombies come I will probably be food anyways. The little fat girls always get it.
