I didn’t write this book and it’s companion survival manual for preppers or “end of the world” people. I wrote it for regular people. Who only occasionally worry about whether they are ready to deal with a medical emergency, a car accident, a weather event, etc.

It’s simple to be basically prepared and doesn’t cost much time or money. I wrote the book to start with basics. Then build from there. I think it’s the wisest investment a person can make for themselves and for their families. So here’s why you should prepare now:
