I plan to listen to this book multiple times, do to the fact that there is so much information that I couldn't retain it all the first time.
When he talks about how unprepared we are as Americans, and how most people only want to deal with the day to day things and not the big picture.
There isn't really scenes in this book in my opinion. It's mainly a preparation guide.
I plan to listen to this book many times and plan to apply multiple things in my life.
I enjoy mostly classics, sci-fi, and sci-fi classics
This book contains lots of lists and reference material. Though I love audiobooks and usually prefer listening, that's just not a good way to consume this material.Also, if you're into preparedness, this End Of The World stuff can be useful. But there are many critics of this relatively extreme Mad Max approach. These TEOTWAWKI situations are unlikely and impossible to assess in advance. It seems more sensible to focus on regional and personal emergencies, which are better understood and much more likely to occur. The end result would be similar, with less focus on tactics to handle outright societal breakdown and chaos. Just one man's opinion, based on my research and understanding.
For me the most interesting part of the book was the section on Ham Radio, and basic medical techniques in disasters.
no, I haven't.
no, I haven't.
This book has a lot of good, practical information. It doesn't matter if you're an experienced prepper or new to it and want to find out what it is all about.
It is probabaly one of the most comprehensive guides to prepping I've found. It does a good job of opening peoples eyes. It goes beyond owning a gun and having a 10 year supply of toilet paper.
Mr. Hill does a good job of presenting the information.
Not everything in this book is going to be usefull to everyone. It is predominantly designed around someone that has a retreat to go to in times of strife which is not practical for everyone. Even if you are locked in the inner city or suburbs being prepared can only help the situation no matter what happens. Everytime a hurricane or some such catastrophy hits you always see people on some news broadcast tearfully pleading for government help, wondering why they still have no heat or clean water after 5 weeks. This book will help you not be this person. Prepping is different for everyone. It doesn't necessarily mean donning the camoflage and traipsing around the backyard with an AR-15. If everyone just focused on having the basics, a good supply of food, water, shelter, heat and sanitation. We would all be better off in a crisis. Rather than looting from one another we'd all be in positions to help one another in a crisis. I realize this ideal scenario is unlikely. In addition, you have shows like "Doomsday Prepper" showcasing the nutcases on the fringe of prepping society, propegating the idea that prepping is for crazy people. I would just say that, no matter what your situation, you can find good, helpful information in this book that will allow you to be better prepared during a disaster. While the audio version is great, it is also practical to get a hard copy so you can have access to the lists, and details that just can't be obsorbed and retained via audio.
James Wesley Rawls has created one of the best books for preparing for TEOTWAWKI The book is a great reference. Everyone should have a copy in their survival kit.
Really enjoy listening to these books sure am glad I was introduced to Audible. Best dollar I've ever spent.
Certainly will have to buy the paperback version, but the information is invaluable.
Mr. Rawles thinks of and discusses everything that needs to be considered for the time coming when our government declares marital law and/or economic collapes occures.
If BO gets re-elected it's a sure bet it'll be before the end of his reign as dictator and the utter destruction of the Constitution.
A MUST HAVE the kind of book you can listen to over and over again and gain Knowledge each time that will help you survive.
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 :(
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.
I picked this up on the daily deal or some other sale and decided it was worth the risk of a couple of dollars. I think any book has to be worth a couple of dollars, but even at that, this one was pretty borderline. The author provides a lot of general hints and everyday "common sense" but mostly unrealistic suggestions about things like buy bulk grain and store your bulk grain so that rodents can't get to it. Be careful with guns and sharp objects, and try not to get hurt. I had hoped for some tidbits of interesting information about water or power systems or something, but there seemed to be little of that in this book. If you just won the powerball and want to use your new found millions to buy a retreat and become the new Howard Hughes then this book might be for you. Otherwise, unless you really do not know where corn and wheat and eggs come from or that its a good idea to have as much Red Cross training as possible for emergencies, I don't think most people are going to get much of interest out of it. I just did not get a lot of real information/content out of this book.
The reader comes across like some arrogant ultra right-winger. Personally I find the tactics too conservative and too pessimistic. Sounds too much of a doomsday scenario to me.
