This is an entirely different type of prepper audiobook.
There are many good prepper "list" books out there. There are also some very good prepper fiction books that teach what items you should stockpile through fictional examples. This book is not one of either of those types of books. This book assumes you will not be able to stockpile everything you need in a worst-case scenario, and it suggests certain items to stockpile so you can barter them for other items when the need arises. To put it another way, when it comes to stockpiling each and every item you need in a total SHTF situation, you can try, but don't plan on having everything together when you need it. So stockpile what you can, and barter for everything else you will need. This book teaches you how to do that.
Serious prepping does not need to be expensive. Did you know that the following inexpensive items will be extremely important in times of disaster or, worse, in a societal collapse?
Dryer lint - this is something we all throw away, but keeping old dryer lint will quickly enable you to start a fire that can be used to purify water or cook food.
Salt - extremely cheap to buy today but will make a lot of prepper meals tasty. Salt is also important in preserving meat.
Bottled water - essential for shorter-term disasters when the tap water is shut off. And 24 plastic bottles of water cost less than $4! Every household should have at least several cases of bottled water, just in case....
Trash, like used milk and cola containers - clean them out and store water or dried foods in them.
Addiction Items - this book will advise you on what items to store in case of a longer-term disaster, besides cigarettes, so that you can barter for things that cost much more!
Plus...some unusual testimonials from travelers, soldiers, and just plain Americans who have survived forms of SHTF by stockpiling these and other prepper items!

There isn't anything here that you couldn't pick up for free, reading blogs and listening to free podcasts. The writing style was oddly annoying and rather patronizing. In a number of spots the same information was repeated as though it was being presented for the first time, making me wonder whether the book was dictated. It was obviously without the benefit of an editor.
There were occasional incorrect inflections.
I would have cut the whole thing.
Can I return this?
