“Survival kit contents check. In them you’ll find:
– One forty-five caliber automatic
– Two boxes of ammunition
– Four days’ concentrated emergency rations
– One drug issue containing antibiotics, morphine, vitamin pills, pep pills, sleeping pills, tranquilizer pills
– One miniature combination Russian phrase book and Bible
– One hundred dollars in rubles
– One hundred dollars in gold
– Nine packs of chewing gum
– One issue of prophylactics
– Three lipsticks
– Three pair of nylon stockings.

Shoot, a fella’ could have a pretty good weekend in Vegas with all that stuff.”
Major T.J. “King” Kong (Slim Pickens [Louis Burton Lindley, Jr.] 1919-1983)

Definitely a good match with The Disaster Diaries, the book is a great weapon to have in your literature arsenal.

This is a great book however keep in mind that the author is American and any places/resources etc. that he mentiones is American. It would be nice to have a text similar to this, but published by a Canadian with relevant issues about Canadian survival. With that said, Les Stroud is a great Canadian survivalist and I am a huge fan of his work if anyone is interested in reading from a Canadian survivalist perspective then check him out.

Comprehensive scope, yet concisely written. The glossary clearly explains acronyms and jargon to the newbie. Undoubtedly the best emergency prep book available for the beginner. How to Survive TEOTWAWKI is a great starting place because it contains no fluff or crazed cult preaching. Excellent links for further study. See for valuable updates from the same author. Highly recommended.
