I never thought I´d be reading a book about prepping, the tendency to get ready in case of disasters, as I always figured it was a thing to do if you were a bit paranoid and/or on the crazy side of life, dressed in camo, saving in canned goods and zombie apocalypse proofing the basement. However, this book came to my hands thanks to folks at Ulysses Press and I started reading it with every bit of a smirk in my face.
Fortunately, this is a book targeted to the regular people, who can have all kinds of different emergencies, in different levels of importance, but with a lot more occurrence ratio than crocodile droids: hurricanes, floodings, earthquakes, power outages and even car trouble and getting lost while camping.
Divided in topical segments, the book goes through 101 advices on how to get ready for emergencies. And the biggest advice of all: have common sense and keep your cool. And those two factors can be trained by repetition and readiness. And that´s what prepping is about.
Good thing is the author also goes through some cost saving advices for everyday life, and that is also a part of prepping.
All in all, it´s quite a good book, that´s good to have in hand, specially if you are outdoorsy, or you live in a naturally challenging environment.
