A great guide to help anyone wanting to be prepaired. He is a little opionated about his weapons but thats ok. So am I. All the info in this book in good stuff. you will have to ajust to your needs and styles. Very recominded.
The narrator has no sense of punctuation. His extremely poor reading lacks rhythm. In every single sentence he has dramatic, misplaced pauses followed but an almost sarcastic emphasis and an innocuous word. This is so distracting that you often loose track of the point of the sentence. He does the author a great disservice. The book is PACKED with great info...but I am going to stop listening and just read on my own so I don't have to listen to the narrator.
I'm not a prepper, but I was planning on getting some good info on disaster preparedness. Wow. This guy is a loon. He said that everyone needs to acquire what would easily be over $200,000 in equipment. Extravagant things like a full dentist kit to include the chair. Also, his "emergency medicine" section has info on how to snap a baby's collarbone in the birth canal and other outrageous tips. This book is a joke and I wish I could get my money back :(
Excellent book for reasonable preparations. Straightforward, thoughtful and well written. I can't wait for more books from Rawles. Both his fiction and non-fiction are fun, entertaining and of course, informative. Good stuff!
Oh My G**--the reader actually reads out, annoyingly, ALL the web addresses. And, it's not like "YouWillSurvive Dot Com" but "SNIP U-R-L, backslash, backslash, T-D-2-I-T, Dot Com". It seems like he has these every couple of paragraphs. If you can weather this, the text is a bunch of chest-beating political horse crap. If that's your game, enjoy, but not me. There are far more usable and friendlier preparedness books out there.
Nothing from this author.
By reading ALL the web addresses, which are not in normal web format, but snip-urls. See above.
Annoyance. I'd like the kind of advice this book might offer--but I've tried three times, and just turn this off. I'd ask for my money back, but it's too late. Dammit.
If I want vitriolic extremist politics, I'll watch FOX news. Otherwise, just get to the point.
The book is packed full of information but it is like reading a dictionary or reference manual. There is no excitement, just pure facts on how to survive.
Cannot remember. It was so monotone.
Inspired me to pray that the world won't end.
Good information for survival but not for entertainment. I made it half way through the book. I have had this book over a year but only could read a little at a time. When I got halfway through, I felt like I read enough.
Get a paperback version. It's weird listening to a book about everything you'd have to do in case something goes very wrong and you find yourself without electricity. Did I mention, that you're listening to it on your iPhone? Just weird, is all.
Knowledgeable things to do if the economy gets worse is what this book is about. Most of the ideas were too much for the average person to do such as moving away from where most of the jobs are.
