Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruthie Jones | 2/14/2014

    " Very well written and full of practical information - even if it's just preparating for a bad storm. Very informative! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Travis | 1/29/2014

    " Rawles writes simply and directly, and his words are smooth as the butter he says we should store for the end of the world. Though I disagree with his somewhat pessimistic believe in man's behavior should some world ending disaster strike, I do like some of his views on being prepared and ready to take care of yourself, your family, and your responsibilities starting with very basic skills. It was entertaining though, and Rawles seems like he'd be an interesting guy to have a dinner with, though I suspect he'd end up on some kind of naive conspiracy theory that would make me skip dessert. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gary | 1/28/2014

    " Excellent place to start with ideas for preparing for difficult times that likely coming our way. So many excellent ideas that can be used with hard work, time, planning and money. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff | 1/21/2014

    " Patriots is a better book, but this is also a good book for those that want to be prepared for disasters and the like. This isn't just for survivialist types either...it will help you plan for natural disasters and other "less controversial" issues. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Singharmon | 11/2/2011

    " This is a great resource when thinking about emergency prep - but admittedly goes a little far for the typical person. It has excellent checklists and helped me get in a mindset of self sufficiency. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Myk | 7/19/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 3/27/2011

    " I was not sure what to expect from the book. It gave advice I already knew for the most part. This would be a great book for someone who knew nothing of how to prepare for a disaster. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheila | 2/2/2011

    " I can't deal with actually contemplating preparing for the scenario he portrays, but it was intriguing to read. "

    " If you're going to read one book on the more extreme side of preparedness...this should be it. It's an intro, but a pretty darn complete one. Just the initial "hook" or an intro is enough of a reason to pick it up at the book store. ;) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ger | 4/9/2010

    " Great advice if you want to increase your chances of surviving when society melts down. For most of us that isn't possible but there are a number of things to consider even if you don't create a fortress in the back country. "
