    In the vein of Sam Sheridan's The Disaster Diaries, a comprehensive guide to preparing for the apocalypse!

    With the recent economic crisis, formerly unimaginable scenarios have become terrifyingly real possibilities- learn how to prepare for the worst

    Global financial collapse, a terrorist attack, a natural catastrophe-all it takes is one event to disrupt our way of life. We could find ourselves facing myriad serious problems from massive unemployment to a food shortage to an infrastructure failure that cuts off our power or water supply. If something terrible happens, we won't be able to rely on the government or our communities. We'll have to take care of ourselves.

    In How to Survive the End of the World as We Know It, James Rawles, founder of, clearly explains everything you need to know to protect yourself and your family in the event of a disaster-from radical currency devaluation to a nuclear threat to a hurricane. Rawles shares essential tactics and techniques for surviving completely on your own, including how much food is enough, how to filter rainwater, how to protect your money, which seeds to buy for your garden, why goats are a smart choice for livestock, and how to secure your home. It's the ultimate guide to total preparedness and self-reliance in a time of need.

    • Pretty cool...

      Really good info, great book, however a little too conservative for my taste. Not a lot of reference to more modern/updated tactics and tools, but still a great survival manual. Shipping took two weeks to deliver to Indio, California.
