This is not the story of preppers with stockpiles of food, weapons, and a hidden bunker. This is the story of Colton Ryman, his stay-at-home wife, Madison, and their teenage daughter, Alex. In 36 Hours, the Ryman family and the rest of the world will be thrust into the darkness of a post-apocalyptic world.

Would you try another book from Robert Paine and/or Don Baarns?

Wow, is this bad. It is simply his other book with a different cover and title. I didn't see the name of the author until after I purchased this book. Even Bear Gryls gives better advice than this hack.

What was most disappointing about Robert Paine’s story?

The content. Almost word for word as his other book.

Would you be willing to try another one of Don Baarns’s performances?

Hell NO

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointing

Any additional comments?

Please refund my credit, I could only tolerate the first couple chapters...

Unbelievably poor advice , catching a deer in a snare with your shoe laces? Good luck with that. Caring mason jars in your bag out bag are you kidding me?
