Publisher's summary

You don't like to think about it, but deep down you know it can happen. Disaster can strike without warning, leaving your family without water, food, or electricity and without medical or police support. How will you survive when that happens? How will you protect your family from threats of violence?

Buying insurance, writing wills, getting our teeth cleaned, and saving for retirement are just a few of the precautions we routinely take to mitigate risks, but most people fail to prepare for what's most important.

They fail to prepare for their own survival.

With 91 percent of Americans living in places at a moderate to high risk of disasters, and with all of us dependent on a very fragile life-support system, it's time for you to take preparedness seriously. When you listen to this audiobook you will:

  • Understand the 27 disasters you're likely to face, why some people perish when others don't, and how to ensure your family survives.
  • Master situational awareness and the survival mind-set you need to avoid becoming a victim of violence.
  • Know when to stay, when to bug out, and how to implement an evacuation plan.
  • Learn the best non-firearm options for self-defense.
  • Discover the best ways to generate electricity, store water and food, and handle sanitation and medical care on your own.

Start Prepping! is the ultimate guide to personal emergency preparedness. It will help your family comfortably survive manmade and natural disasters and stay safe from everyday violence. You can't hide from the risks we face, but you can prepare for them. Listen to Start Prepping! now, and give yourself some peace of mind - because the day after disaster strikes, it'll be too late.

Simple, actionable, and reasonable

"Start Prepping!" really broke down the process of thinking through what kinds of emergencies are most likely to occur given your circumstances and how best to prepare. There was no fear-mongering and the author didn't waste words trying to sell you on the concept of emergency preparedness in every chapter which was highly appreciated. I also liked that each potential issue (water storage, food storage, etc.) was approached in several ways with a variety of proposed steps and solutions.

If you are in any way interested in prepping, you will benefit from this book.

Good for Beginners

Very good book for people new to prepping. Young doesn’t scare you into prepping. He gives good reasons why to prep and then tells the how.

A great starting point, best I have ever read!

Started listening to it on Audible, and realized this is a must have book, too many details to try and remember. So I ordered the hard copy, rather try and write it all out. Great Job Tim!

Good information. I enjoyed the communications chapter in particular. It is always good to be self reliant.
