This book is not bad, but there are better books available. It is a useful adjunct to Survival in Today’s Turbulent Times and Nuclear War Survival Skills in that it has some information that the other books don’t – BUT – it should not be your only or primary readiness instruction manual. The author tries to jam too much information into too little space – 10 point print run too close to the margins – and a lot of important information gets a very cursory treatment. I get the sense that he has no real feel for the subject; rather, it seems like he’s just compiling and paraphrasing information from other sources.
The line drawings are not well executed; where they’re reproduced from elsewhere they’re second (or sometimes third) generation copies – that is copies of copies of copies. The nuclear war and fallout shelter drawings are reproduced from Nuclear War Survival Skills, and are smaller than the originals and difficult to follow.
The ground-to-aircraft signals appear to be from Bradford Angier’s Survival With Style (1974), and are mis-offset.
I found the original drawings fairly annoying and not well executed, as were the author’s occasional jokey little bon mots peppered here and there throughout the text.
Again, it’s not a bad book, but there are other, better books you should probably buy first.
