9780141049335: How to Survive The End Of The World As We Know It: Tactics, Techniques And Technologies For Uncertain Times

This is the definitive guide on how to prepare for any crisis, from global financial collapse to a flu pandemic.

It would only take one unthinkable event to disrupt our way of life. If there is a terrorist attack, a flu pandemic, or sharp currency devaluation, you may be forced to fend for yourself in ways you've never imagined. Where would you get water? How would you communicate with relatives? What would you use for fuel?

Survivalist expert James Wesley, Rawles, editor of SurvivalBlog.com and a former US Army Intelligence officer, shares the essential tools and skills you will need for your family to survive, including how to find and build a retreat, store food, supply power, rear animals, administer medicine, barter, and defend your family.

'Save those wine corks. Burned cork makes quick and cheap face camouflage.'
'Store only foods with minimal spices. When you are surrounded by starving people, just heating up a can of spicy chili con carne could be a death warrant.'

'If you are on a budget, you might get away with a good-quality bolt-action rifle...'

Review:

The preppers' bible. Jim Forsyth, The Chicago Tribune

Civilization is still standing now, but that does not mean it always will We'd better know what to do in the event of a deadly viral pandemic, major asteroid strike, unprecedented hyperinflationary (or deflationary) economic depression, third World War, or any other global disaster, Rawles argues. He spells out all the hazards that we might face in a post-disaster society: looting, armed violence, food shortages, etc. Then he lays out steps we can take now, such as taking survival- training courses, designing shelters, and stocking them with necessary supplies. He even offers a chapter on disaster-proof financial security: savvy investments to make now, earning income in the midst of a major recession, and bartering in the wake of a true disaster. The Futurist"
