Your Survival by Bob Arnot is one of the most practical survival books on the market. Dr Bob Arnot is a very well respected journalist in the field of medicine. In this book and the DVD that accompanies it he gets into the basics of surviving the multiple natural threats that we face as a race today. In making this book Dr. Arnot talked to survivors of various natural disasters (earthquakes, floods, tornados, fires etc) and has used their experiences to enhance and strengthen his research. This book and DVD contain check lists and very easy to follow planning steps that anyone can understand to prepare themselves and their families for potential catastrophe. The DVD included runs for approximately 90 minutes and the book itself is 160 pages long.
This survival books does a very good job at convincing readers that they should really have some kind of survival plan no matter where they live in the event that a natural disaster happens. This set will cover what things you need to think about before, during and after disaster however this book does not go into as much detail on some topics as much as other books on the market. This was probably done to increase the accessibility of the book for the reader and as such this book is not a one stop guide to everything you need to know. Instead I would think of this book as an overview of what you need to know and a starting point for you to begin your own research, this book is ideal for people new to the idea of prepping and surviving natural disasters and is a great start point for anyone interested in such things.
Seasoned pro’s may find this book less useful than newbies however there are still some hidden gems of information that you may have overlooked. One example of this is a section that tells you to contact your insurance companies and make sure your coverage is up to date, its the small details like this that make it an essential part of any preppers book collection. However the checklists and expert tips are still useful for everyone and as such we cannot recommend this book more, especially if you are relatively new to the world of disasters and preparedness. Whilst this book does not cover all of the information that you may require it is a great building block to turning you into a survivalist guru.
