    Trash

    This book is trash--tells you nothing you can not find elsewhere for free and a LOT quicker.

    Exiting, Captivating, Excellent!

    Like in "The Game", in his new book "Emergency" Neil takes us to a different reality that most of us are unaware of. This time Strauss immerses himself in a community which interest and obsession is to be prepared for the next world crisis.
    History repeats itself, and it is just a matter of time until the world we live in falls into chaos again; when we face this challenges, only the best prepared will survive.
    While the content of "The Game" differs from that of "Emergency", both books create a similar effect in terms of making the reader reevaluate what he thought he knew about the subject. Ideas and behaviors that initially appear to be extremist, illogical and hard to believe become clear, rational, and necessary.
    Once Again, Strauss´ efforts result in a book or guide that offers an easier start for those who want to follow his steps. In the case of this new launch, his determination to be prepared for the next crisis will help you learn how to survive the worst that this world has to offer. Thanks Neil!
    The book itself is very interesting and captivating. Neil´s particular story and his entertaining way of telling it will keep you thrilled from start to finish.
    Whether you are looking for an escape plan for when everything you know falls into chaos, or just entertaining and exiting reading, I strongly recommend getting "Emergency".

    Not What I Expected

    I was hoping to be better prepared for emergencies after reading this book, with a dash of humor thrown in. What it ended up being was more of journal entries. The humor was great and kept the read interesting, especially the parts about his girlfriend. But I'm no better off than I was before, except maybe a little more paranoid. Interesting book if you're looking for a funny memoir type of read. Will be a disappointed for someone wanting instruction or advice. And it gets hard to think of his experiences as being realistic to the average reader, unless paying lots of money to getting another passport sounds like a good idea to you.

    Emergency by Neil Strauss

    This is a great read that has been well thought out and researched. I have never read any of Neil's other books but this book is a absolute winner. If your interested in keeping you and your family aware and prepared for anything from a hurricane to armageddon. This book will help you.

    Very eye opening

    I've passed this book on to about a dozen friends. I love the way he really dives into what he's writing by living it out (also with previous books).
