EBOOK COMMENTARY

Praise for The Practical Preppers Complete Guide to Disaster Preparedness
“My bestselling novel, One Second After, has helped to generate awareness about the threats of an Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) and Coronal Mass Ejection (CME), but though based on facts it is ultimately just a story.  When folks ask me what they should do to prepare I tell them to put down the novel and pick up The Practical Preppers Complete Guide to Disaster Preparedness by Scott Hunt.  Scott’s book provides the real info as to what you can do now to prepare you and your family for most any disaster scenario and come through it safe, sound, and alive.   If you have ever asked yourself ‘what can I do to get ready if things go wrong,’ this book will give you the answers that can be the difference between life and death.” –William R. Forstchen, New York Times bestselling author of One Second After
  “I was impressed with the scope and variety of information covered in The Practical Preppers Complete Guide to Disaster Preparedness.  Whether you are just starting out or well versed in the subject of survival, you will find lots to learn from this book.” --Bernie Carr, author of The Prepper's Pocket Guide and apartmentprepper.com
