Hey all – ModernSurvivalOnline sponsor and supporter Prepper Press has just released a few new books. All are available in paperback as well as electronic format.
The first – Preppers: History and the Cultural Phenomenon – is something I have never seen before.
The word ‘prepper’ seems to have burst onto the scene within the last 10 years, and has increasingly become associated with “fringe” extremists. They have been labeled by some as “domestic terrorists.” But is prepping a new phenomenon? Or is it a manifestation of a growing collective psyche that has learned, from traumatic events throughout our history, that preparedness is critical to human survival?
For new preppers who think the worst is yet to come, this book offers a walk through history that shows the worst has been here before.
For those who wonder why so many people are concerned about being prepared, this book will show that when the worst has made an appearance, those who weathered it best were those who were prepared.
For those already familiar with history’s worst who think, “THAT will never happen again!”—this book offers a reminder of the Wall Street adage:
“Past performance is no guarantee of future results.”
For those who wonder what a prepper is, this book offers a look at what they used to be—and what they are today.
Next – as part of their “Prep Smart” series is – Developing a Personal Preparedness Plan.
Developing a Personal Preparedness Plan has been written to help individuals plan for life’s unexpected emergencies through a practical, attainable, and individualized process.
The principles in this book will enable preppers to match their abilities, situation, and needs to realistic threats specific to that person. This book teaches the reader about “normalcy bias” and provides solutions to the challenge of preparing for the worst in the midst of plenty. The result of going through this process will be a road map for satisfying your needs in a realistic and rewarding manner.
Lastly – another part of their “Prep Smart” series – Survival Guns: A Beginners Guide.
Survival Guns: A Beginner’s Guide is the first firearms book in the PrepSmart series that covers the basics of building a basic firearm battery. Steve Markwith, the author, will take the reader through the process of selecting and buying firearms and accessories through a planned process that meets your needs and budget. Steve outlines some underlying principles to work toward the goal of building a coordinated battery, beginning with just a short list of “essential systems” that constitute a baseline inventory.
The book’s premise is built on starting with a clean slate. While some readers may already own guns and pursue the tendency to weave what they already own into the mix, those end results may be less than ideal. Steve takes the reader through a logical approach to building a planned but practical collection that will suit a variety of needs. While this book, and Steve’s similar manuals, is written for beginning-to-intermediate users, those familiar with firearms will also find the content of value. The information contained within is detailed, covering far more than just a firearm itself, leaving the reader confident in his/her plan to acquire guns and accessories in a reasoned, logical way.
As stated – all three are available in paperback and electronic formats.
