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.
Just like the Zombie Apocalypse Manual shouldn't be an audiobook, this also shouldn't be. This book more of a referance manual, not a story - it's just not a good fit for an audiobook.
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.
