Why do you need my prepping book?
Plan and Prep: Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse is just one of many books that cover basic prepping strategies and instruction for emergencies and disasters. It seems like every other day there is a new prepping book released that is the “newest” or the “best” book on the market. Many of the people that have written books about prepping can also be found online via many of the social media outlets telling the world about their book and letting people know that they should buy it. If you like zombies, well, then that might get you interested in my book. It’s pretty safe to say though that there are quite a few “zombie themed” survival and prepping books out there to enjoy.
So what is different about my prepping book? It’s the methodology behind my instruction. Most other prepping books spend a lot of time telling you what you need to buy and how you need to use it. These books make the assumption that you can afford all of the gear in the world and that you know how to use it. The authors of these books know their stuff most of the time, but what they are teaching is based on their own situation as well. If you just happen to be exactly like the author you’ll be in good shape, otherwise you might want to look for another book.
Plan and Prep: Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse is a book for preppers from novice level to advanced. The reason I can say this is not because it has more information than any other book, but because it has DIFFERENT information than pretty much all other books. Instead of telling you exactly how I would handle each and every situation possible, I allow you to learn how to handle them based on your own knowledge, ability and experience. Let’s face it, all of us are different and just because we are a prepper doesn’t mean we are financially well off, athletic and knowledgeable in all aspects of wilderness survival. Some of us live in houses, others apartments, mobile homes, townhomes or even barracks. Preppers can be city dwellers as well as rural folk and our desire to survive isn’t predetermined by anything else that bonds us as a group.
Your survival should not be determined by “the expert” that sold you a prefabbed plan. You shouldn’t be basing your entire survival plan off of a television series or believe that when the SHTF it is going to look anything like what is portrayed in the movies or video games. Yes, there are basic skills that can easily be transferred such as basic gardening, carpentry, automotive, etc but unless you know how and when to use those skills they are pretty much worthless to you. Do you think learning how to garden from a book that is based in southern Georgia is going to help much if you are in Alaska? Carpentry is a great skill but if you have no idea WHAT to build how are you going to build it?
This is where Plan and Prep: Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse stands out. In the book I use very basic language and a little bit of humor to drive home some very important core skill ideas. These ideas are very basic, such as things to consider when planning an evacuation route, things to consider when packing a bug out bag and how training and quick decision making can save your life. Yes, there are other things in the book and no, you won’t be an unkillable survival machine just because you read it. You will however have a very good base from which to begin operating and developing your prepping plans.
What about people that are already prepping?
If you consider yourself more than just a novice prepper then you won’t find as much in the book as helpful as beginners will, certainly. However, I have been told by several long time preppers that they learned a few things and, more importantly, thought in some new directions after reading the book. To put it in prepper terms, they expanded their prepper toolkit just by reading a short, slightly entertaining book that includes some great artwork and funny tidbits.
This is NOT an “end of times” prepping book!
Even though the title references zombies and the book itself delves into a bit about them, this book is NOT a doomsday survival book. I chose “zombies” as a worst case scenario event for a few reasons:
- Zombies are the ultimate “worst case scenario”
- Zombies are fun to write about
- Zombies are geographically neutral
- Zombies represent the “mindless, dangerous creatures” that unprepared people will become
What are you waiting for?
Plan and Prep: Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse is available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle formats. At the worst you will spend less than $10 and have a few hours of reading enjoyment, and probably pick up a thing or two. At the best you might find the book is something you really enjoy and it helps to open your eyes about emergency and disaster preparedness.
