Hi Rourke , if you just like to read ,like me , how about a book that’s interesting and has survival tactic’s thrown in to boot ! ‘The Journals of Lewis & Clark’ by John Bakeless . About how they traveled across America and what they did to survive. My book sez copyright 1964 so I don’t know if it’s still available !! But it’s GOOD !!
Hi, couple of books at the bedside/bookshelf I recently picked up. “Special Operations Forces Medical Handbook”, you could run a small hospital with the information provided within, a medical tome used by SOF, introduction,” single source reference provided many nontraditional approaches to accessing medical information….”. purchased via us gov’t printing office $59, buy it anywhere else will be $150. highly recommended (worked in medical field 3+ decades). to go along with that, “Johns Hopkins ABX Guide, Diagnosis and Treatment of Infectious Diseases”-the ‘how to’ of using all those antibiotics you have collected. “Antifragile” by Nassim Taleb of “Black Swan” fame, just started that, ‘blueprint for living in a black swan world’. “Wild Fermentation” by Sandor Katz, about process of fermenting foods to preserve them and make them more digestible and nutritious. already made kombucha and kimchi. And finally, “The Far Side, Gallery 5”, Gary Larson of course, when all this stuff were are preparing for gets me down, provides belly laughs galore til i am in tears, great for the soul, the heart, and the psyche. As an aside, found a copy of “world war z” in the airport, fast read, main thought that came through that WAS real, governments will sacrifice many in order that THEY survive. Thats it, thanks for listening.
I have not yet read ‘One Second After’, but it is on my list.
A friend of mine just purchased the ‘Total Outdoorsman Manual’; it looked pretty good.
‘Patriots’ is in the pile on the side of my bed. Lately, I have been reading a mystery series by Robert Crais, to try to balance out the prepper/non-prepper part of my brain.
I just went and put “The Home School Shootist’ on my Amazon wish list.
Have about half your list shown and all the Joe Nobody books – both Fic and Non-Fic. That Home School Shootist is better than I expected. Picked up Doc Bones book The Survival Medicine Handbook last month. Very good but $$. Just started reading “Pulling Through” by Dean Ing last night.. Good so far.. Don’t care for JWRs books, though I love his website. For those who haven’t read One Second After or Lights Out, are really missing a treat. Excellent Reads.. Gob Bless all –
We share the same taste in reading, that’s for sure. I have many of the books pictured. I really enjoy the Total Outdoorsman, The Ultimate Survival Manual and Total Gun Manuals from Outdoor Life/Field & Stream. We have quite a library. My wife buys the Kindle downloads and I get the printed versions. If I had to chose only one to take off with, it would probably be the SAS Survival Handbook.
