Overview

If your community was hit with a major disaster, such as an Ebola outbreak, earthquake, flood, hurricane, or radiological accident, would you be prepared? Would you be forced to fall into line with hundreds of thousands of others who are so woefully unprepared? Or do you possess the knowledge and supplies to adapt and survive? Do you have a carefully stocked pantry, a method to retrieve and purify water, a source for generating electricity, and the means to protect your family from desperate criminals? In short, are you a prepper?

This book contains fifty of the most important steps that individuals and families can take to prepare for a wide range of disasters. Each step is complete, clearly described, and actionable. Together, they cover every aspect of disaster preparedness, including assessing the threats, making a plan, storing food, shoring up your home, administering first aid, creating a safe room, gathering important papers, learning to shoot, generating electricity, keeping warm, and much more.

Recent events have reminded us that our world is a dangerous place, whether it is a terrorist state, a deadly tsunami, a nuclear disaster, a massive blizzard, or a financial collapse. Our lifestyle, and even our very existence, is forever uncertain. Join the quickly growing community of individuals and families determined to stand ready. Become a prepper!

    I'm a big fan of Dr. Bradley's Handbook to Practical Disaster Preparedness for the Family. The Prepper's Manual is a wonderful addition to that comprehensive guide. In the manual, Dr. Bradley outlines fifty key steps that people should take to be better prepared. This isn't the "live off the land" type of advice that some prepper's follow. Rather, it is practical advice for real-world threats. The book itself is clean and well written, with a large number of illustrations and photographs. There are a couple of other books with similar titles, and while each offers a unique perspective, this is the one that I actually used to take steps. It contains a wide assortment of advice, from the obvious: food and water storage, to the less common: knot tying, burying bodies, bartering. It also has some great lists of everyday carry gear and bug-out supplies.
