- A guide to "survival jobs" and "survival businesses."
- Ways to hide money and other valuables.
- The basics of wilderness survival.
- How you can get out of handcuffs or flexi-cuffs.

Extensive research and the author's own experience have been used to provide a guide to the easiest and/or best ways to survive in almost any situation you can conceive of. Lessons start with "interesting times" in general, and address challenges ranging from getting rid of debt to developing alternate incomes. Then you'll learn what to do when truly tough times arrive, with increasingly severe circumstances looked at in each chapter. Soon you'll know what to put in a "BOB" (bug out bag), which "BOV" (bug out vehicle) to have, and how to choose a good "BOL" (bug out location). You'll discover how you can find food during total anarchy. After an introduction to the basics of wilderness survival, the book wraps up with a discussion of how to have a survivor mindset.
