Beginning concepts and reinforcement of mind set

Would you listen to Retreat Security and Small Unit Tactics again? Why?

Yes, I will listen to it at least 3 or 4 times.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Retreat Security and Small Unit Tactics?

Descriptions of various techniques and strategies

Which scene was your favorite?

All interesting

Any additional comments?

It is a "basic training" of security and patrolling and how to go about security. The book reinforces enthusiasm and the mind set needed for prepping. A good primer. Then get Patriots- A Novel of Survival in the Coming Collapse by James Rawles. That book is the next level and then some!

excellent

A whole picture approach to preparation. This is not silly, impractical foolishness or Rambo. It is practicable ideas and concepts for whole, real people.

Basic Preparedness

This is a very simple, short look into the world of preparedness. This is a great list of fundamentals that everyone should be aware of, if not practice. There are several good podcasts that cover these ideas with about as much detail, and they won't cost you a credit. Actually, you will learn a lot more by simply listening to the author's own podcasts.

I would recommend this book for someone new to the idea of securing themselves and their family. However, this book just barely scratches the surface.

Excellent primer!

I have read many of Mark Goodwin’s, and they are outstanding in every way. His books are chock full of useful information to everyone who wants to hope for the best but prepare for the worst. Furthermore, Goodwin’s fictional books contain engaging characters conducting themselves realistically in fast paced narratives. Keep up the good work!

Every Preparedness Group Should Read/Listen!

So much of this is common sense to us srasoned preppers. But to the new prepper it is solid gold!
I listen to it a couple times a month for keeping the skill and mindset honed...
Great information about gear, training and keeping your mind and soul in the right place...

Things you may not have thought of.

This book is mostly for peepers, but has useful information for surviving common natural disasters.
