Audible Editor Reviews

A drought in the United States, as disaster preparedness consultant David Black explains, usually just has economic ramifications; a drought in eastern Africa might lead to death. That is, however, no excuse not to be prepared. After 9/11, it became apparent that the times are changing, and we are more susceptible to disaster than ever. In What to Do When Shit Hits the Fan, performed by prominent Audible narrator Steve Coulter, listeners will get detailed plans and methods of response for times of crisis, whether it's terrorism, catastrophic weather, or civil unrest.

    "If you want to know what to do when the shit hits"

    If you want to know what to do when the shit hits the fan this book is not it. If you believe that you can sit and watch TV after a major disaster than you should think again.

    "Basic information, but good to know"

    The book felt very much like an aggregation of various government sources, first aid books, and other material with personal anecdote interspersed. The audio version was wooden and uninteresting, but the information was sound and I would recommend it for people who aren't familiar with disaster response or planning.
