In this follow-up to the best-selling Prepper’s Long-Term Survival Guide, we delve further into the issues that will face the survivors enduring life after doomsday.
The book is divided into two sections. In the first several chapters, we talk about how to meet basic needs, such as food, water, and security. Throughout these chapters, the focus is on renewable and sustainable solutions. Stocking up a ton of food is all well and good but it will eventually run out. So, we talk quite a bit about growing food as well as ways to collect and store water.
In the second half of the book, we turn to discussing specific long-term disasters, how to prep for them and what to expect in the aftermath. These disasters include:
–Civil unrest / Martial law
Prepper’s Long-Term Survival Guide 2 will be out in stores by the end of 2017! You can preorder your copy here on Amazon.
A massive disaster strikes. Civilization breaks down and with it goes the thin blue line of police protection. Days or even weeks pass before the National Guard arrives to protect law-abiding citizens. In the mean time, it’s every man, woman, and family for themselves. Having self-sufficient means for protecting your family at this critical moment is essential. Thankfully, Prepper’s Armed Defense details exactly how to achieve this high level of life-saving readiness.
Opening with a survey of firearm options including handguns, rifles, and shotguns, Prepper’s Armed Defense is the ultimate resource for deciding on your most powerful tool for protection. Far more than a gun guide, Prepper’s Armed Defense is the most comprehensive, no-holds-barred guide to all type of weapons, including knives and other edged weapons; non-lethal weapons like pepper spray, tasers and stun guns; plus last-minute improvised weapons made from common household items.
When disaster strikes, calls, texts and emails don’t always work. After 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, and Hurricane Sandy, cell phones were rendered useless when transmission towers were destroyed and networks became overloaded. Having an alternative way of reaching family and loved ones at these critical moments is essential. With this in-depth guide, you learn the best tips, tricks and expert secrets for surviving when phones and the internet fail.

If you realize that there is more to “prepping” than buying pallets of freeze-dried food and cases of bottled water, then Prepper’s Financial Guide by Jim Cobb is for you.
Shelle Wells, PreparednessMama.com
Economic trouble is one of the most likely societal collapse scenarios we face today. If you examine history, even recent history, you will understand just now untenable the current economy is in the United States. Even if the primary disaster isn’t financial based, the ramifications upon the banking and related industries are almost certain.
Almost everyone experiences bad patches when it comes to finances. An unexpected job loss can quickly devastate a family. Recovering from any number of every day, common calamities, such as a house fire or tornado, can wipe out savings, even if the insurance company holds up their end of the deal.
Prepper’s Financial Guide will help you get your financial house in order so you can withstand the challenges almost sure to come at some point down the road.
On top of that, the book also provides solid information on how to reduce debt and increase your prepping budget. One of the chief complaints among preppers and survivalists is a lack of funds to acquire the gear and supplies they feel they need. Even learning new skills can be costly, both in terms of necessary supplies as well as any fees related to the classes and such.
We also discuss concerns related to long-term collapse scenarios, such as bartering, using precious metals and minerals, and how to safeguard your investments.
The Foreword was contributed by well-known survival and disaster planning instructor John D. McCann. You can read what he had to say here.
Prepper’s Financial Guide can be found at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Booksamillion, and anywhere else books are sold.
