Publisher's Summary

People say that "you can never be too prepared" for a disaster - and while that is true, there is such a thing as over-preparation. If preparing for a possible disaster in the future significantly impairs your family's quality of life today, you might need to reassess your priorities.
Living in a constant state of terror and paranoia is not something I am particularly fond of. I'm not one of those people who has built such an incredible fortress for myself that I'm almost giddy about the idea of getting a chance to use it.
If you find that lifestyle appealing, this guide is not for you. But you probably guessed that already from the title: I believe in practical preparation. Being smart and ready, but also being rational about the risks and rewards involved. In this audiobook I will seek to address some simple steps that everyone should take to stay prepared.

Short & Semi-practical

If the whole Northern Hemisphere goes to heck in handbasket, then what is learned in this is completely applicable. If your bug out plan is to run for the woods, maybe this might be helpful. If you have alternative plans already and just want to think out what you may need should you and your family need to run to the hills this is helpful. The best part is that it is not long winded.
Unfortunately, it does not cover small scale disasters where running for the hills would be a silly option if the problem is super-local, just one part of modern society and or you or your family is expected to show up for work/ school next week (think Sandy in NYC & NJ).

understandable overview of how to prepare

Quick listen on what to have ready when you are in an emergency situation where you have to leave your house in two minutes, with an uncertain date of return.
While it doesn't provide the total solution, it does lay out a framework for understanding what is most important.
