If there’s a friend or loved one who you’d like to introduce to prepping, why not give them the gift of knowledge? Get them started on a survival library.
For starters, I suggest you buy The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Disaster Preparedness for that newbie prepper. It’s a 288 page paperback, by Dr. Maurice A. Ramirez and John Hedtke.
The title may sound insulting, but I assume the idea is that if a “complete idiot” can prep for survival, then so can you. I Think of it as something like prepping for dummies.
Info about the authors says, “Dr. Maurice A. Ramirez, DO, is the founder and president of the consulting firm High Alert, LLC, dedicated to making individuals, families, businesses, and communities more aware of the need for disaster planning and education.” The coauthor John Hedtke “is an award-winning author who has written about high tech, management, and business topics for over 25 years.”
Many people haven’t given thought to natural or man-made disasters, so they haven’t planned for them. That’s the sort of thing that happens to somebody else. But you and I know differently. Now’s the time to get ready.
The book’s description says in part that The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Disaster Preparedness “teaches readers the right steps to prepare the home or office for a disaster, and about issues relating to insurance, evacuation plans, and building an emergency to-go pack.”
If you know someone who doesn’t have a clue as to how to start prepping, get him or her this book so they can make use of its practical advice before it gets any later. Click on its title wherever you see it linked in this post, and you’ll be taken to the page where it’s featured.
Remember, books will be around when computers and the Internet aren’t. The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Disaster Preparedness is a book to use before that happens.
