Useful Even When The World Isn't Ending
By Dr. Space - January 9, 2010
The world might not come to an end any time soon, but I can guarantee you that YOUR world will hit some bumps from time to time. Ever been snowed in for a week? How did you stay warm? Did you have enough water during your first hurricane? Ever tried to call 911 during a riot? If this sort of thing hasn't happened to you yet, count your blessings, but if you live long enough...something will eventually come along.

Brilliant crisis preparedness book - probably the best as of 2010
By Alberto Vargas - January 28, 2010
I have read and reviewed many crisis and survival preparedness books in the past year (feel free to look at my other reviews). This is by far the best book on these topics that I have read. I highly recommend it to anyone who cares about preparing to weather the current economic crisis or to survive a natural or manmade disaster.

The Ultimate Suburban Survivalist Guide is without doubt an eye-opening look at what could happen if a crisis were to hit your community or our country. However, don't let the title fool you. The author isn't one of those hardcore survivalists who move to remote farms where they raise livestock, collect guns and ammo, and prepare for a global oil crisis, financial meltdown, zombie invasion or the end of the world as we know it.
He likes the creature comforts of a warm bed, healthy food and fresh water. Just like you and me! Yet he has been able show, by actually doing it himself, how anyone can develop self-reliance and independence without giving up their twenty-first century lifestyle.
What's more, his book is practical, useful and written in an easy-to-digest conversational tone that will help you develop skills so you can become a more self-reliant, well-rounded, and interesting person. And it's packed full of additional resources for you to check out... read more
