    James Wesley Rawles, founder of survivalblog.com, shares with you everything you need to know to be ready for the worst. The book includes information on proper food storage and sanitation, gardening and livestock basics, investment strategies to protect your assets, medical advice, communication techniques, home security, and how to get "outta Dodge" when, in the parlance of the movement, "the shit hits the fan".

    Overall

    A couple of reviewers have griped that it is too pessimistic (did they miss the entire "The End Of The World As We Know It" part of the title?), or too conservative (seems that the "how to Survive The..." part of the title was overly complex for them). If you are not concerned that the world we now enjoy may be developing major disruptions (Japanese atomic power plant, anyone?), or failing in ways both big (budget deficit, housing market, faux unemployment numbers) and small (shrinking sizes of product at the grocery store, without shrinking prices), then you will not find this book to make sense for you. If on the other hand, you do have these concerns, you will find much in this book to consider. It is not an encyclopedic reference, cookbook style, of everything you need to do to survive all manner of disaster. What it is, indeed, is a survey of the sorts of issues you may want to consider, and measures you may want to look into so that you and your family might successfully respond to them. And then move on from there.
