Handbook to Disaster Preparedness for the Family Product Review

At 440 pages, the Handbook to Disaster Preparedness for the Family handbook goes into significant detail and covers a vast amount of potential survival situations.

Now in its 3rd edition, the book has been continuously updated to include more advice and guidance, as more threats become apparent. For example, it provides information on how to deal with an Ebola outbreak, financial collapse, or even radiological emergencies.

The information is provided by a trusted source, as author Dr. Arthur Bradley has a Ph.D. in engineering, and currently works for NASA. He has personal experience of several disaster situations and has appeared in the New York Times and on various radio shows.

The book includes practical advice for all of the family, and although it covers plenty of topics, each topic is discussed briefly with straight-to-the-point guidance. It doesn’t suggest expensive or impractical ways to deal with scenarios, and instead gives you realistic and applicable tips written in an easy-to-follow manner.
