About this item

Read James Wesley, Rawles's posts on the Penguin Blog

In the vein of Sam Sheridan's "The Disaster Diaries," a comprehensive guide to preparing for the apocalypse
With the recent economic crisis, formerly unimaginable scenarios have become terrifyingly real possibilities- learn how to prepare for the worst
Global financial collapse, a terrorist attack, a natural catastrophe-all it takes is one event to disrupt our way of life. We could find ourselves facing myriad serious problems from massive unemployment to a food shortage to an infrastructure failure that cuts off our power or water supply. If something terrible happens, we won't be able to rely on the government or our communities. We'll have to take care of ourselves.

In "How to Survive the End of the World as We Know It," James Rawles, founder of SurvivalBlog.com, clearly explains everything you need to know to protect yourself and your family in the event of a disaster-from radical currency devaluation to a nuclear threat to a hurricane. Rawles shares essential tactics and techniques for surviving completely on your own, including how much food is enough, how to filter rainwater, how to protect your money, which seeds to buy for your garden, why goats are a smart choice for livestock, and how to secure your home. It's the ultimate guide to total preparedness and self-reliance in a time of need.

This book is WAY more than just how to survive. This book focuses on practical ways to survive and manage a life after a collapse of civilization as we know it. By focusing on early preparation and planning, the book gives insight into aspects of everyday life that we may take for granted, but become vitally important if the worst were to happen. Definitely an eye opener with useful advice for everyday application.

This book is full of useful and practical information. The advice in this book is geared towards survival if the unthinkable were to occur but there is information about food storage and home security that would be useful day-to-day. Definitely a book that safety-minded individuals would appreciate.

This book covers a wide array of topics and gives lots of tips and suggestions on how to prepare for a catastrophe. Great book and should be in everyone's home library. Many things can be done easily and with out a lot of expense. The time to prepare is now.
