Prepping for Sane People
Reviewed in the United States on August 28, 2017
This is the survival book for people who don't stay up reading Guns & Ammo and dreaming about heroically killing their neighbors during the Apocalypse. Sheridan covers the potential need for self-defense, and the desirability of self-reliance, but the moral of the story is that a well-prepared individual is nothing compared to a cooperative community as the killer app for survival.
Why this is such a rare idea in the "prepper" community is beyond me: how else did human beings survive wars, pandemics, Black Deaths, Ice Ages, nuclear mutually assured destruction, etc.? Isn't our ability to combine our efforts with complex language, abstract strategic thought, and social empathy the very thing that has made homo sapien the most successful apex predator on the planet (for better or for worse)?
Read on and enjoy one man's down-to-earth, funny, affecting journey through more life-skills than Tim Ferris could shake a bulletproof coffee at!
