Publisher's Summary

If you're looking for information on how to prepare for a short-term natural disaster, this is not the book for you.

Best-selling author Jonathan Hollerman will present evidence that America as we know it could be destroyed in the near future from the loss of America's electric grid or other societal collapse scenarios. Many preparedness "experts" severely underestimate the threat posed by millions of starving, desperate people and offer dangerous advice because of it.

This preparedness guide will help you develop a plan to escape the deadly rioting and looting, showing you where you can take your family to keep them safe, even if you can't afford a fully-stocked survival retreat. Hollerman's in-depth expertise and recommendations will cover many topics including bug-out bags, SHTF Weapons, tactical gear, survival tools, knives, long-term food storage, livestock, bug-out locations, survival retreat recommendations, and much more.

    "Literally a half decent book."

    About half of this guide is useful prep/survival info, half personal politics and pushing Christianity. Religion as means to stave off depression is a good point to make, but the rambling chapters about biblical text is not helpful. Similarly, the nearly first half of this book is on politics and personal worries of the author. Yes, it's good to have an understanding if the world and be able to identify real fears vs paranoid ones, but again, this is covered well beyond what is useful as a guide.

    Overall, worth the listen, but expect 1/2 of the advertised run-time.

    "Great information"

    Jonathan Hollerman is on point with the information and is true to his research and resourceses. a great read for anyone wanting to know more on prepping in general especially for a EMP, CME or long term power outage, it's not a matter of if it happens but when it happens... will you be ready, this book can help you get there.

    "Got me moving!"

    I found this book to be very well researched and full of useful information. It's not always easy finding a prepping book that doesn't go a bit over the top and make you question your own sanity. Hollerman is practical and level headed in his approach to prepping, he's also a veteran which also make me tend to trust his research and experience...but make no mistake, he's not pulling any punches either. I especially appreciated his opinion on "tacticool" gear. It made me laugh and increased my opinion of the authors legitimacy.

    All that being said...

    I could have done without the bible thumping bit at the end. It's a good thing he didn't put it at the beginning or laced it throughout the book because I would have never made it past the first couple of chapters.

    What matters most is that this book got me moving on my food preps again. It helped me asses my bug out gear and even gave me the final push towards taking a hard look at my beloved 1911 and switching it out for a Glock as my go to SHTF pistol. Now to just find my "retreat"...

    "Worth a listen"

    Some new interesting ideas in this book, for people that are regularly working at prepping there might not be anything new. Worth listening to. Could of done without the religious nonsense at the end.

    "Excellent and up to date"

    I highly recommend this book. Information is up to date and completely relevant. I bought the audio version but I'll probably by the print book as well.

    "Interesting And Straight-Forward"

    So...that was fascinating. Look I enjoyed the data driven by facts and not opinion. I already knew the straight numbers on worse case survival are bleak because civil society is fragile and most people are woefully unprepared. This is something I learned at the graduate level...and I still feel unprepared! Better off than most (statistically), but still under prepared. Everyone has to start somewhere and I am glad the author reiterated that point several times throughout the book. I urge people to listen to or read this book, take heed, and begin to take action or stay in action if already only prepared to the post local (short-term) disaster level.
