I really wanted to like this book, but there are several issues: Bad Points: 1. If you have done any reading on prepping for future catastrophes / bad times - this book is mainly a rehash of other prepper ideas. You can find 99% of this information on the web by looking through prepper / survivalist websites. 2. The author starts rambling throughout the book on her personal history / growing up (which has little to offer in light of the subject at hand). 3. The author recommends not storing foods which are not grown locally (ie - wheat, corn, etc.) because you won't be able to get it after the financial meltdown. This is a very bad piece of advice based on the author’s viewpoint that people will be distressed if they are not able to get that kind of food after their supplies run out. If I can safely store corn for 10+ years, why wouldn't I store something like that? 4. The premise of the book is to become prepared in 21 days. A lot of the suggestions will take longer than 21 days to put into place. 5. The author mainly focuses on her region (Northeast) for suggestions relating to growing foods (and other subjects). 6. There are five reviews before this one that are nonsense (they appear to be spamming the B&N reviews with 4 & 5 stars for this book). I'm not saying that the author is doing this - but the “reviews” are just nonsense words thrown together. Good points: 1. If you are completely new to prepping - this book may help you to think about a few things before the you-know-what hits the fan.
