NOTE: The original founder of Preparedness Advice, Howard Godfrey, is the author of this book. I give it my full recommendation as an outstanding source of advice that covers a wide expanse of survival topics.

One thing that I am very pleased with is that Noah has taken good care of this blog. Information continues to be widely shared and you are getting to see some different points of view.
I have been working on revising and updating the second edition of my book, “Emergency Preparedness and More, A Manual on Food Storage and Survival“.…Read More...
Here are some additional free downloads of various preparedness manuals. Many of these are older books and I have not had the time to review them. Use the information in them at your own discretion.
Hope these preparedness manuals will be useful to you.

Several months ago, I added a suggested reading list to the Blog; I have listed a few books on it that I considered important. However, I have not put a real effort into building this list. I feel that a good list of worthwhile books could be useful to all of us. I would like your suggestions on what to add to this list. You can send them to me at Preparednessadvice@gmail.com.
Thank you for your help. Between us I think we can make a great list.
I found a little book that I really like that just fits in your bug out bag. It is called the Nature Bound Pocket Field Guide. The book appears to be currently out of print, but is available through the used book market at reasonable prices. It has over 300 pages and measures 4 ½ x 5 inches.

There is a large section on edible plants with good pictures, descriptions and information on preparation and other uses. The section on poisonous plants includes pictures, symptoms and some treatment information.…Read More...
As many of you may be aware I currently have a book “Emergency Preparedness the Right Way” for sale on Amazon. In about two to three weeks, I will have a second book for sale on Amazon. This will be a much larger book, about 330 pages. It will deal with most aspects of Emergency Preparedness. I will notify you when it comes on the market.
