The reality of the world is, you never know when a disaster will strike. Sink holes, tornados, flooding, or earth quakes, the list goes on. Being prepared is always a smart plan, but sometimes, we miss things, and sometimes there are just too many unforeseeable things. This is why today we're happy to be taking a look at the Disaster Survival Guide from Weldon Owen, and give you an idea of the things you need to be prepared for anything.
This guide covers a bit of everything, from pretty simple disasters, to some of the larger scale ones that we hope we never have to deal with. From identifying types of broken bones and creating a sling or a splint, securing your house after an earth quake, and more extreme ones like surviving after a plane crash and jumping from a moving train.
The Disaster Survival Guide comes with some excellent illustrations that really help make everything clear. Even if you don't want to stock up for the zombie apocalypse, this book will at the least give you some ideas of what you might need to do in various scenarios. It's really entertaining to look at some of the worst case scenarios and get a good idea of how to handle them, and makes for an interesting read.
In all, this book is worth having around. Whether you're looking to plan for the worst, fancy yourself a know it all, or just want to add something interesting to your book collection. The Disaster Survival Guide touches on a lot of realistic scenarios (and a few that we hope to never come across), and gives you some pretty useful information on preparing for them and handling them afterwards. If the descriptions are ever unclear or leave any question, the visualizations should clear it up for you instantly.
