What People are saying about this
Meet the Author
Lisa Bedford, aka The Survival Mom, started her blog when she realized that all the literature on survival and preparedness was written by men, for men. Long a teacher and trainer, she took it upon herself to be the missing voice for the many moms out there. She has been featured in Newsweek and on Glenn Beck, and speaks around the nation about disaster preparedness.

I have this book and it is amazing. The paperback edition is better in my opinion so you can flag and highlight and complete the checklists she has included. At the end of each chapter she gives lists and checklists, which are easier to me on paper. Awesome book!
THE SURIVAL MOM is the best book on surival I have ever read. I have told my friends and family about it and plan on buying it for my children. It is a must have book. It is easy too read and follow even on a budget it shows you how to start preparing. Even my husband loves it. He agrees it is the best book we have found and we have bought several and borrowed others. It is easy to read and understand and done in an interesting format that makes you want to read it. The other books are too technical books written for men by men. THANK YOU FOR THINKING ABOUT US WOMEN, Keep up the great work. I am 70 and have learned so much from you. LOL AND GOD BLESS YOU PAT FROM ARIZONA

This lady has done her homework. She organized her material in a way that the reader could understand and appreciate the need for many things we might not not think of on our own. Should be on every coffee table, read and implemented. Not scare tactics, just a way to feel you can get prepared without breaking the budget too badly.
