Review of The Book: Handbook To Practical Disaster Preparedness For The Family

The Handbook to Practical Disaster Preparedness for the Family, by Arthur T. Bradley, Ph.D. is absolutely fabulous. Whether you’re a novice just starting out, a seasoned “prepper” or a die-hard survivalist, this is one book that you should add to your must read list. In fact, I bet most of you will be adding this book to your libraries and go-bags or BOB’s.

When I first received the book, I was a bit busy with some other reading I had to do, so I did a quick thumb through of it and I have to admit, I was impressed with the content right away. It is hard to find any one book that covers everything when it comes to preparedness, but this is as close as it comes when you get down to a practical guide, especially for families.

The Handbook to Practical Disaster Preparedness for the Family contains complete lists, photos, charts, formulas that will be quite useful to many. Want to know about food storage and how long your food will last? It’s in there. Need to know how much fuel you’ll need for your generator for one week? It’s in there. Think you’re prepared with just your store bought survival kit? It talks about why you may need more than that.

It also covers sleep and sleep deprivation, communication, first aid, lighting, fire, electrical power and much, much, more. If you’ve been looking for a book that covers and touches on nearly everything that you need for your families preparedness needs this book is it.

In all honestly I had a hard time finding anything to be critical about with this book. It is well thought out, well written, and as I mention covers a large amount of information. With that said, if I had to find anything wrong with the book at all, and trust me it was difficult; it would be the burn graphics on page 302. I think it would have been better if the book included actual photos of burns instead of graphics. This could be due to the former EMT in me, but I think it would have served readers better with actual pictures of the wounds for better comparison.

Considering this was the only thing I could find, I consider it very minor, and hope that you will find this review useful and check the book out for yourself.
