Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The people must begin to prepare themselves. This book can help them do it." -- Dr. Ken Alibek, author of Biohazard and former director of Biopreparat, the Soviet Union biological weapons program

"It's a great thing that we have Aton Edwards to help inform and prepare the public." -- Richard Preston, author of The Hot Zone

"Aton's work is tremendously important. What we need to do for the next round is to get ourselves prepared.--Chuck D.

"Mr. Edwards is often called the city’s foremost expert in personal disaster preparation — he has appeared on the “Today” show, has taught his “Ready Up!” seminars to hundreds of participants with partners like the Red Cross and has set up, as part of the National Urban Self-Reliance and Preparedness Program, “incident command centers” across New York, like the one he recently created for the hip-hop pioneer Afrika Bambaataa in the Bronx." -New York Times

A guide to surviving just about everything, and extremely well composed. The resources section alone is a reason to buy this book. This book is part of a "Process self-reliance series", by Process Publishing, and the entire series is just amazing.

For anyone serious about becoming less dependent on a fragile infrastructure and staying clear of the trouble on our horizon, this book is for you. Masterfully written, easy to read, difficult to put down. This book will help you understand why and how to begin preparing your family for adverse times. It is preparedness from a sane and realistic approach. This is not a book for the militant isolationist. This is a book for every concerned family in America that sees trouble coming and wants to know how to avoid it.
