A Review of Survival Mom: How to Prepare Your Family for Everyday Disasters and Worst Case Scenarios

I was excited to receive my review copy of Survival Mom:  How to Prepare Your Family for Everyday Disasters and Worst Case Scenarios by Lisa Bedford.  I know you’re supposed to be neutral before you start reading, but I will admit I had high expectations for this book.  Having visited The Survival Mom blog for a couple of years, I know it is my “go-to” place to find out about survival issues for a mom such as myself. The book […]

Book Review: Holding Their Own

This post is by Bernie Carr, apartmentprepper.com A month or so ago, I posted about reading Holding Their Own: A Story of Survival, by Joe Nobody,  over President’s Day weekend.  This book was written by the same author of Holding Your Ground, which I thought was valuable, but that was more of a manual instruction type book, while this one is fiction.  I have read so many other survival fiction books, I wasn’t sure how this would compare. Mr. Apt. […]

A Review of Holding Your Ground: Preparing for Defense if it All Falls Apart

This post is by Bernie Carr, apartmentprepper.com I just finished reading Holding Your Ground:  Preparing for Defense if it All Falls Apart.  I can safely say I have never read a book like it.  It is a manual on how to defend your home and your family in the event of a breakdown.  When I first started preparing I first focused on water, food and shelter; I will admit that defense was not on the top of my list.  Holding […]

Just Finished “Lights Out”

I almost did not read Lights Out.  I had read One Second After and that worried me enough to push me along the preparedness path (See How it All Started.)  My husband recently bought the book and started telling me that while it deals with an EMP just like One Second After, Lights Out takes a completely different approach.  I was intrigued so I started reading immediately after he finished it. I am a pretty fast reader normally but this […]

One for the Summer Reading List: American Apocalypse

Summertime is a great time to catch up on reading.  I just finished reading a book of fiction, American Apocalypse:  The Collapse Begins by author Nova.  It is the first book in a series of four books.  I read it in two days; I was quite riveted with the story. The book centers around a young man who finds himself homeless, trying to stay alive in a suburb of Washington, D.C.   Much of the country has fallen into anarchy following […]

First Reviews of The Prepper’s Pocket Guide

I am excited to post there are now a couple of reviews of my new book, The Prepper’s Pocket Guide.  A while back I had mentioned there were a few review copies available and several readers had kindly offered to review the book.  The copies started to arrive in the last week or so, while some are yet to be received. Reader C.F. Hill recently posted a review on Amazon under Customer Reviews.  C.F. Hill is a Top Ten Reviewer […]

Book Review: Bug Out: The Complete Plan for Escaping a Catastrophic Disaster Before It’s Too Late

Bug Out: The Complete Plan for Escaping a Catastrophic Disaster Before It’s Too Late by Scott B. Williams is one of the first books I ever read on preparedness.  I had won a copy from Scott’s website Bug-Out Survival. I was hoping to glean information on what to do in case we have to leave our home in an emergency.  I was not disappointed.  Bug Out: The Complete Plan for Escaping a Catastrophic Disaster Before It’s Too Late is well-organized […]
