EMP Survival: :How to Prepare Now and Survive, When an Electromagnetic Pulse Destroys Our Power Grid (Volume 1)
Military strategists in four countries have boasted that they can cripple the U.S. with an EMP attack. Other countries have protected their power grids from an EMP attack. The U.S. power grid is still vulnerable. A widespread power outage could take years to restore because the EMP destroys electronics including circuits and transformers.
Even unplugged electronics can be damaged. Only electronics stored in a faraday cage are protected.
Fuel, communications, power, water, and food will be unavailable within hours when emergency fuel runs out. Gas pumps and even pipelines rely on electronics.
Mob violence from mass evacuation of uninhabitable metropolitan areas will be a significant security issue within days. This book describes the risks and details how to prepare and survive.
Readers should also prepare for a potential nuclear attack. Radiation Survival: How to Prepare Now and Survive Radiation Exposure, is now available.
Very, very good!

The title is "EMP Survival," not how to build faraday cages, etc. While there is good information about faraday cages and other engineering and theoretical information, the value of this book is that it combines some excellent, practical, and detailed tips about real survival (from the author's experience, not just from someone else's "be prepared for disaster" list). In addition, he emphasizes how an EMP can (and would) strike with probably no warning to the general public. At first it would seem that your power is simply out - something we've all experienced. But it then goes on to explain how to determine that we've been hit with an EMP by trying other electronic devices. He goes over what might work, what might or probably would not work, and somewhat on how to protect AGAINST an EMP. This isn't an engineering book, and should not be rated against that criteria. And at the "Kindle" price for our Andriod phone, it was outstanding. While we already practice some emergency... read more

I followed up reading "One Second After" with this book and found it to be very useful and informative. I've already taken some of the steps recommended in this book and keep telling myself "Better to be prepared and never need it than to be caught off guard." While the specter of an EMP disaster is very scary, the thought of being caught unprepared for the day the lights go out kept me up at night. This book has given us some good ideas about what to have on hand so we can keep going.
Be a good scout - BE PREPARED. This book will give you some good ideas.
Truthful but very elemental

Wish I'd read Highlander419's review more closely before ordering. Very basic information only in this book. I guess when Highlander spoke about this being the equivalent of a high school paper I made the mistake of thinking back to the level of detail and diagramming I put into my own high school projects. My mistake. Anyone with any level of insight on the EMP problem already knows everything of value in this book. Uncertain? Spend 10 minutes reading an internet search on EMP and you'll know as much as this book professes to provide.
EMP is a very real and substantial threat. If you've read "One Second After" then you've already learned essentially everything you can learn from this book, in a much more engaging format.
Anyone who thinks this book's recounting is "detailed" has a very simplistic understanding of what details are. It does branch into a number of other survival topics. Unfortunately, this is space which the book sorely needed to use for... read more
