    Surprisingly Good

    This book is a great overview of many good security tips. Very useful on many fronts. Medical advice is very handy, good item to have if the worst ever does happen. Not a cheery topic, but a much-needed book, nonetheless. Highly recommended.

    Fascinating and Useful, Easy to Read

    An excellent summary of solutions for terrorism and other security issues. A very easy to read, useful, and common sense guide. The medical response guide is especially comprehensive. None of the usual Liddy rhetoric much more about helping yourself in an emergency. It will make you and your family feel much, much safer, and is a must for small business owners and security professionals alike.
