    Jim Cobb¿s ¿Prepper's Long-Term Survival Guide : Food, Shelter,

    Jim Cobb’s “Prepper's Long-Term Survival Guide : Food, Shelter, Security, Off-The-Grid Power and More Life-Saving Strategies for Self-Sufficient Living.”




        Since I had good luck with two of Jim’s prior books, “Prepper’s Home Defense” and “Prepper’s Complete Book of Disaster Readiness”, I felt that I had a very good chance that this tome would be just as good or even better. I’m here to tell you that he has written another great one. My library of prepper related books is starting to look lopsided since I now see 4 of Jim’s books in the collection. Four books? Yes, I haven’t reviewed his latest “Countdown to Preparedness” and I’m anxious to do so!
        His style of books is following a solid theme. That theme is to present enough information on a very wide variety of topics within the book’s realm, such as home defense, disaster readiness, and today’s long term survival. I like a book that touches on many subjects and doesn’t take much room to deliver the main points. His books are like encyclopedias as they have a wealth of info and leave you yearning for more. A couple of other author’s will spend page after page of making one point, so your education is limited. I don’t like to pay for “limited”. I always want my money’s worth, don’t you? Some folks seem to want him to give them excruciatingly detailed plans on what he presents. To those folks I say “Bah!”. Why? Because I like to learn and not be told every nit-picky thing that I’m supposed to do.
        As for this current title, I have some thoughts to pass along. First, I’m giving you a general list of contents. You will learn about a little history, water preservation, medical issues, hygiene, food, shelter, security, tools, adding entertainment, and how to barter and trade. As I said before, if he gave you everything about each subject, you’d have a book as thick as a phone book. (Does anyone still use a phonebook?).
        There are a few chapters and subject matters that you will rarely see in any other prepper or survivalist book. I found the hygiene, security, entertainment, and the barter/trade chapters very interesting. I don’t think I’ve seen those in my current library. Staying clean (hygiene) is rarely touched upon, but a topic that would be immediately useful to practice in a long term disaster. How many folks have packed toilet paper in their bug out bags (BOB)? Heck, even the entertainment section is something no one else really spends time talking about. I put a deck of playing cards in my pack and families need to consider adding a few things so their kids don’t go nuts and, in turn, drive you nuts. It can be a nice morale booster too. How about learning to barter and trade? I’ve seen it mentioned, but never paid attention. Now I have some really good basics to expand upon with further research.
        And that is what Jim’s book do for me, he gives enough information that makes me want to dig in deeper and find more ideas. He also presents the information in an easy to read style without presenting advertisements or sales pitches for his favorite companies and gear. There are always “Aha!” moments and “Why didn’t I think of that?”
        All in all, if you’d like to learn a lot to get your started planning for a long term event, this is where you want to start. And, trust me, you’ll be hooked and will start to add his other titles to your collection.
