Book Review

Here is a down and dirty book review from my first pass by the Phoenix Library. Links provided for my favorite of the bunch.

SAS Survival Guide I like how it is pocket-size but a little hard to read because of the same reason.

How to Survive The End of the World as we Know it by James Wesley Rawles founder of survivalblog.com.  Without a doubt the best book I have come across so far in how to stockpile for the fall of society.  The man has gone a lot further down the rabbit hole than I ever will.   More of a “how to” stockpile the compound rather than how to survive without a stockpiled compound.

The Self-Sufficiency Specialist by A. & G. Bridgewater.  A good picture book to flip through for ideas but a little light on actual practical information.

Reader’s Digest Back to Basics: How to Learn and Enjoy Traditional American Skills.  One of the best books I have come yet across to add to the bookshelf.  Probably my first Apocalyptic Book Collection purchase.

Living the country Lifestyle for Dummies not as good as Reader’s Digest Back to Basics book but not bad.

The Survival Handbook: Essential skills for outdoor adventure. Another book worth buying.  Too heavy to carry in your “Get the F out of dodge” (GTFOOD) kit but the easiest book to understand because of its ample use of color drawings.

  1. GTFOOD is such a perfect acronym for the context of what you are doing.
