Book: Prepping 101

Graphics make the difference for this book.

My wife Mary opened the package that the book, Prepping 101: 40 Steps You Can Take to Be Prepared: Protect Your Family, Prepare for Weather Disasters, and Be Ready and Resilient when Emergencies Arise, came in, before I got home a few weeks back.

She was the one that called my attention to the book and remarked about how readable it is and how she liked all the illustrations in the book. One only needs to examine the Table of Contents to see a different approach, pictures and few words versus a listing of chapters in word form only.

That same use of graphics continues throughout the book which makes it more "readable" and usable in my mind. In this case, I'd go for the paperback version versus the Kindle version, which is typically what I go for. 

While I have not read every word in the book, those pages I did read — there was nothing I disagreed with. She didn't say anything about gun ammunition like one prepper book I read, "You can never have too much ammo."

Overall, she gives well-balanced advice that any family could use. I'm going to throw mine in our home kit!
