Rourke’s Weekly Recommendations

Every week I throw out a few recommendations on things such as movies, books, knives, flashlights – all kinds of stuff. Some of these are not related to preparedness whatsoever – rather, just stuff I like. Most are available on Amazon but not all. I have a particular fondness for movies as one of my favorite things to do is to sit back and watch a good one.

So – for this week……here is my list:


Books (non-fiction)

Bushcraft 101: A field Guide to the Art of Wilderness Survival

SAS Survival Guide

How to Survive the End of the World as We Know It


Books (fiction)

Lights Out

The Survivalist – Book 1

The Pulse: A Novel of Surviving the Collapse of the Grid

  1. I saw ‘The Survivalist 1’ under your book recommendations, and immediately thought of Jerry. Added this one, which I am unfamiliar with, to my 10000 item Amazon wish list.

    Totally forgot about The Equalizer! It had been my favorite show on TV, once upon a time. I remember wondering why he used a PPK, when such better weapons were available during the time period, and that he used a Marlin big-bore lever action in one episode.
