Overview

West Point graduate, former Green Beret and NY Times Bestselling author Bob Mayer brings you a different type of survival guide (one you can actually use): a practical step-by-step handbook for the average person, full of valuable information. It's written using humor, personal experience and training, film & book examples, and real world case studies.

This book lays out the mindset needed to survive from mild, to moderate, to extreme emergencies in a logical flow that moves from preparation you must do now through action in the actual emergency.

Covered are the five key elements of survival; the Special Forces Area Study; how to build you survival A-Team; equipment needed; proper preparation and actions in your home and your car; then covering a range of emergencies from car accidents to burglary to hurricanes, power outages, vampires, wild fires, plane crashes, alien abduction, terrorism and more. Yes, there is humor in the book, because humor is a key element of survival. Certain over the top sections (vampires, etc.) are designed as Kindling pages (not Kindle) that can be torn out of the print version and used to start a fire.From the basics, the book moves into detailed survival techniques for water, food, fire, shelter and first aid. Finally, the book concludes with extreme emergencies, where civilization might collapse, whether for a short or extended period of time. And yes, that's when we get to zombies (communicable diseases).

This is a book that can save your life and the life of those you love.

Meet the Author

West Point Graduate, former Green Beret and NY Times bestselling author Bob Mayer has had over 50 books published. He has sold over five million books, and is in demand as a team-building, life-changing, and leadership speaker and consultant for his Who Dares Wins concept.

Bob earned a BA in psychology with honors and then served as an Infantry platoon leader, a battalion scout platoon leader, and a brigade recon platoon leader in the 1st Cavalry Division. He joined Special Forces and commanded a Green Beret A Team. He served as the operations officer for 2nd Battalion, 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne) and with Special Operations Command (Special Projects) in Hawaii. Later he taught at the Special Forces Qualification Course at the John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School at Fort Bragg, the course which trains new Green Berets. He lived in Korea where he earned a Black Belt in Martial Arts. He's earned a Masters Degree in Education.

His books have hit the NY Times, Publishers Weekly, Wall Street Journal and numerous other bestseller lists.

Bob grew up in the Bronx. After high school, he entered West Point where he learned about the history of our military and our country. During his four years at the Academy and later in the Infantry, Mayer questioned the idea of "mission over men." When he volunteered and passed selection for the Special Forces as a Green Beret, he felt more at ease where the men were more important than the mission.
Mayer's obsession with mythology and his vast knowledge of the military and Special Forces, mixed with his strong desire to learn from history, is the foundation for his science fiction series Atlantis, Area 51 and Psychic Warrior. Mayer is a master at blending elements of truth into all of his thrillers, leaving the reader questioning what is real and what isn't.

He took this same passion and created thrillers based in fact and riddled with possibilities. His unique background in the Special Forces gives the reader a sense of authenticity and creates a reality that makes the reader wonder where fact ends and fiction begins.

Mayer's military background, coupled with his deep desire to understand the past and how it affects our future, gives his writing a rich flavor not to be missed.

Bob has presented for over a thousand organizations both in the United States and internationally. For more information see http://bobmayer.org and http://coolgus.com
