When Disaster Strikes, You’ll Need Matthew Stein’s Book

Since Matthew Stein was my guest on DestinySurvival Radio for February 16, 2012, I thought it was fitting to feature his latest book, When Disaster Strikes
, as the DestinySurvival Pick of the Week.

Its full title is When Disaster Strikes: A Comprehensive Guide for Emergency Planning and Crisis Survival. It covers a wide range of topics and includes a foreword by James Wesley Rawles. It has been favorably reviewed by other notable figures in the preparedness field.

While his first book, When Technology Fails, is about living through the “long emergency,” this book focuses on preparing to survive a crisis or emergency. About a third of the material is derived from the first one, but includes updates as well.

As you might expect, it deals with how to find and store food and water, shelter, and first aid to help you get through the worst. It also includes a section on how to make your home more self reliant, with plenty of info on generators.

There are chapters on how to respond to specific disasters, such as solar storms, EMP, nuclear catastrophe, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, earthquakes and surviving extreme winter weather.

Self defense is the subject of another chapter. There’s also info on alternative healing.

When I asked Stein what separated his book from other books on preparedness and survival, he said it includes info you can’t find anywhere else. I don’t think this is bravado. He brings to the table his expertise as a backwoodsman and mountain climber as well as that of an engineer.

When Disaster Strikes is a more manageable size than the first book. Though it’s 400 pages, it’s small enough to take in your bug out bag or emergency kit for car or home. Get your copy by clicking on its title wherever you see it linked in this post. That takes you to the page where it’s featured, and you can place your order from there.

While it’s true no single book can cover everything, this is one book you’ll want to have in your survival library. When the Internet is unavailable or gone altogether, you’ll want practical, well organized information, like that which you get in When Disaster Strikes.
