Praise for Prepper’s Home Defense:

Rational Preparedness says: I like this book because it simply addresses security issues which are of concern in preparedness circles, and also because even after twenty five years of prepping, it gave me some additional perspectives especially in the areas of structure hardening, safe rooms, and communications…. Jim Cobb gets my wholehearted recommendation for this book.

Charlie Palmer, author of The Prepper Next Door, says:
Two things I especially like about the book are that it is realistic and that I couldn’t find any really bad advice….I feel Cobb tells readers what they should hear which is a credit to him.

Bestselling novelist Brian Keene gave Prepper’s Home Defense an Honorable Mention on his annual Top Ten list for 2012.

Stephanie Dayle of American Preppers Network says:
Prepper’s Home Defense has earned a place on my bookshelf by giving me the information I needed to go home and put in place some security procedures and equipment that made my home more secure the day I read the book.

Book Description:
The power grid has been down for weeks. Flood waters fill city streets. Earthquakes have reduced roadways to rubble. Civilization is breaking down and there’s nowhere to go. Don’t expect the National Guard to rush in to protect the city. —It’s every man, woman, and family for themselves.

When looting, disorder, and anarchy sweep the land following a nightmare scenario, only those who have followed the action plan presented in this book will be armed with the tools and tactics needed to protect themselves and their property against destruction. From securing stored food, caching valuables, and stocking ammunition to building effective fencing, installing surveillance equipment, and training in the use firearms, this book is the most comprehensive, no-holds-barred guide to effectively saving the lives of one’s family members and ensuring the security of the home.

Even if one doesn’t own a house, Prepper’s Home Defense is a powerful survival tool for those trapped in a big city during a natural or man-made disaster, showing how even apartment- and condo-dwellers can survive for days without assistance and effectively use deadly force to protect themselves should the unthinkable unfold.
