The Prepper’s Complete Book of Disaster Readiness by Jim Cobb (Review/Giveaway)

The Prepper’s Complete Book of Disaster Readiness by Jim Cobb (Review/Giveaway)

Disaster Preparedness GiveawayMy Friend’s over at PREPARE Magazine are running a series of Book Reviews and Giveaways that are sure to help you add to your Preparedness Library.  There will be a giveaway EVERY OTHER week upcoming so continue to stop back and see what the next book that will be available to you!

The Prepper’s Complete Guide to Disaster Readiness by Author Jim Cobb is the quintessential preparedness primer. It is suitable reading for both the novice and seasoned prepper. Almost every topic is covered in this book yet it still it goes into great detail without distracting from the primary focus of laying a strong foundation. Disaster Readiness is a broad topic but author, Jim Cobb knows his topic well and has done a fantastic job of breaking things down into clearly distinct chapters and sections to help the reader grasp the scope of being well prepared.

The chapters offer a wide range, yet build from “Why to prepare” to more specific details such as “Where to go” in a disaster.  The Prepper’s Complete Guide to Disaster Readiness will take you on a sequential journey without hype or conspiracy. Unlike day to day life, this book is tightly segmented in its approach so that you are able to locate a particular area on which you need to focus and review to it regularly.

Jim enlightens the reader on areas usually untouched such as how Disaster Readiness affects relationships (Children, Pets and Elderly). This is a book that we highly recommend regardless how long you have been on the preparedness journey.

This is not Jim’s first book, he is a very well established author and you can find many of his books reviewed here on our website, but he is also an authority figure in the educational video series Make Ready To Survive.  You can also find his articles along with mine in the Surviver’s Edge Magazine.  Jim is an extreme wealth of knowledge and a definite resource for quality information, be sure to visit him on his website as well at SurvivalWeekly.com.

To get a good feel for Jim and what he is all about, you can listen to my interview with him on Mountain Woman Radio.

Our hope is that the winner of this book will be both encouraged and share what he/she learns to help others.  This is a foundational addition to your emergency preparedness library!

I just wanted to be sure to remind you to visit PREPARE Magazine and sign up for their FREE online magazine where you will find my articles contributed on a regular basis.  I really am drawn to the message that they share and not only do they have the FREE online magazine available to you, but they have a subscription-based print magazine where you will also find my materials being shared AND they have a membership area on the website where they offer some really in-depth webinars and additional information for those really interested in diving into preparedness.  So be sure to visit PREPARE Magazine quickly and sign up!

Review: Urban Emergency Survival Plan by Jim Cobb

Review: Urban Emergency Survival Plan by Jim Cobb

Jim CobbI’d like to take the time to introduce you to Jim Cobb.

I’ve had the extreme pleasure to speak with Jim Cobb on several occasions as well as interview him on my Mountain
Woman Radio
show this year.  Jim is a very down to earth guy with a deep desire to educate people and share his knowledge.

Jim is a mutli published author and you can find the list of his books here.  I highly recommend ALL of his books and I also suggest that you check him out on his website at SurvivalWeekly.com.  He really has a lot of very valuable information available.

Jim’s book Urban Emergency Survival Plan was just released and I had the honor of reviewing this for him.  I absolutely love Jim’s writing style and always feel like he is talking directly to me while I am reading.  It is as though you are sitting in the same room and he is just sharing his thoughts.

I really feel that the Urban Emergency Survival Plan is a book that EVERYONE should read…  Even us wilderness dwellers…  Why?  Because he brings up some great points that I feel everyone should think about.  As he mentions too – not everyone is blessed to be living the wilderness dream as we are and some, due to careers and varying other circumstances will remain urban bound so for those of you in the city and urban areas I feel you should have this in your arsenal of books, but honestly so should everyone else…  You just never know when you might be in the city when things fall apart….

I am honestly more fearful of the cities than I am our vast wilderness area and if I were in the city while an emergency took place, I can honestly say I would feel like I was in the jungle with limited resources so I really feel the knowledge Jim shares is priceless!

He shares a lot of simple and useful information, here is an example below of  an excerpt from URBAN EMERGENCY SURVIVAL PLAN, Chapter 8 – Bugging Out:

Urban Emergency Survival Plan

Juice Pouch Food Storage
If you have children who love juice pouches such as CapriSun, don’t toss the empties into the
trash. You can reuse them for storing food in your bug out bag! Those pouches are made of mylar,
which is used the world over to package food.
For this project, you start by cutting open the pouch. Cut straight across the top of the pouch, just
below the hole for the straw. Wash and rinse the pouches very well and let them air dry
completely. This is important—the interior of the pouch must be absolutely dry to avoid mold or
food spoilage.
When the pouch is dry, pour in your food. If you are going to use something like white rice, which
is a great idea by the way, use a measuring cup to determine just how much you’ve put in the
pouch. Measuring it first will allow you to know how much water to add when you want to cook it.
Avoid using wild rice varieties though as they contain oils that will go rancid in the long­term.
Stick with white rice, even instant rice will work well. Add a bouillon cube for added flavor, if
you’d like. Dry pasta works well, too.
Make sure you leave about an inch or so of empty space in the pouch. Then, pinch the top closed
and gently squeeze as much air out as you can. Fold the top over two or three times.
Then, seal it closed by running a hot iron over the seam a few times. This melts the mylar slightly,
sealing it airtight. There is no need to cover the pouch with a towel before ironing it closed. It takes
just a few seconds for the mylar to fuse. I’ve never had an issue with mylar sticking to my iron.

Use a marker to write on the outside of the pouch what is inside as well as any preparation
instructions. To continue with our rice example, you’d want to note how much water to use when
cooking.
Note: these pouches are not suitable for cooking in. They are merely a convenient way to store the
food in a small package. You will still need to carry a pot or pan to prepare the food.

Jim has quite a few new things brewing and I look forward to enjoying some good conversation once again on my Mountain Woman Radio so stay tuned and be sure to listen in.

Have you read any of Jim’s books?  Which books have you read and what were your thoughts?

What are your thoughts and fears of being in the city?  What questions would you ask Jim on my radio show?
