Overview

This custom companion to the blockbuster National Geographic Channel series Doomsday Preppersis filled with how-to illustrations, "Prepper Profiles" of people in the show, and survival tips from preppers themselves. Handy and comprehensive, the manual offers valuable life-saving information to help prepare for the most devastating calamities. Episodes of this highly original show, which debuted in February 2012, explore the lives of otherwise ordinary Americans who are preparing for the end of the world as we know it. Preppers go to extraordinary lengths to plan for any of life's uncertainties, from constructing a home out of shipping containers and stockpiling 50,000 lbs. of food to practicing evacuation drills and hand-to-hand combat. This book is an essential component.

It's neat to hear the makers from the show Doomsday Preppers go into more detail of their ideas and methodology that is used during the show. They use tips from the Army, Teddy Roosevelt, Boy Scouts, to leading authors and survivalists. Overall, a good book to accompany the tv show and go into more detail that the show can't. If you are a fan of the show, I definitely recommend you read this book.

I gave this book a 16/16, because this book has great detail. The book made by Michael S. Sweeny, is one of a kind. It tells you what to do in a worse case scenario.
