Prepper’s Long Term Survival Guide Product Review

As this book focuses on long term survival skills, it is less concerned with wilderness and bushcraft advice. Interestingly, Jim Cobb specifically explores the long-term effects of large-scale disasters and disaster survival, such as a lack of electricity or gas, or a water shortage.

This makes it a unique take on the survival book and would be particularly useful for readers who are fearful of natural disasters and emergencies. However, Cobb is not just looking at earthquakes or short-term emergencies that, if adequately prepared, a town can typically cope with in this day and age. Instead, Cobb also advises on global pandemic and failure of power grids.

His advice on urban issues such as power failure makes it a suitable guide for those living in suburban or urban areas, as opposed to just being aimed at rural citizens. This is useful, as those living in towns and cities are typically less prepared for emergencies than those used to the wilderness and survival basics.

It is also a relatively short read, which means, despite how overwhelming this kind of information can seem, the smaller book makes information easier to digest.

It is worth noting that some readers have found that although Cobb writes a lot of common-sense advice, he does not go into enough extensive detail to fully prepare someone for long term survival. Larger disasters would inevitably need more preparation and, therefore, more detailed advice, so this may be an issue if you are looking for the most in-depth and comprehensive guide.
