Great book recommendation

January 27, 2010

cover of the book emergencyA friend of mine gave me a book the other day that was an excellent read.  “Emergency: This Book Will Save Your Life” by Neil Strauss.  If you are not familiar with Strauss’ work, he made his mark writing for Rolling Stone and the New York Times as a music critic.  He is also author of  “The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists” and “The Long Hard Road Out of Hell” (a collaboration with Marilyn Manson) to name a couple.

In a nutshell, the author realizes that in the event of financial collapse, terrorist attack or similar apocalyptic situation he was ill prepared to survive the event.  Neil chronicles the steps taken over a two to three-year period to becoming the ultimate survivor.

Whether or not you spend your days worrying about “end times”…you will definitely learn a few helpful strategies that will put you one step ahead of your neighbors in the event of a major emergency.  The book is well written, humorous and informational.

If you decide to read the book, let me know your thoughts.  I bet you’ll like it.
