I noticed the copyright is 2006, but the events in the first few pages read like the current newspaper. If you are concerned and thinking of preparing, this book is a wealth of information as to what to do in preparation for and during a most probably crisis coming soon to the USA.

I and friends are on our second reading of the book to gleen specific actions and mindset needed to survive.

A captivating book, with all too realistic thread. This one will make you think. A handbook for anyone who wants to stay alive in the times ahead.

No one likes to think about the collapse of our government and the downfall of our country. However, this is a sober look at the what ifs and how one can be prepared for an ugly doomsday scenario. The book is a bit preachy but well written and an eye opener.

I wish I could give this more stars, but I have to call it as I see it. While the book covers an interesting and timely topic, and also has some important information, as a novel it is very lacking. The language, prose, and flow are extremely juvenile, and make for jerky reading. Characters are simple and undeveloped. It¿s difficult to grow attached to anyone in the story, or feel any real emotion over events. Nearly every description interrupts the flow of the story, sounding more like cut-and-paste from a technical manual than a narrative. There are some great technical details, but they can be written into the story without sounding like a commercial break. I don¿t like to give bad reviews, but when I spend eighteen plus dollars, I expect more. As an informative text, the book does succeed on some levels, but as a novel, it fails miserably. There are enough sources out there to help with writing that this should not happen.

I wonderful book about true (but fictional) heroes. Best summed up by the famous quote 'All that it takes for evil to triumph, is for good men to do nothing.' Here good men and women do many great things.
