"It's The End Of The World As We Know It And I Feel Fine" E-Book Review

Following is a review that I wrote on a prepping E-Book written by the author of  Daily Survival Blog

I recently had the pleasure of reviewing the E-Book entitled “It’s The End Of The World As We Know It And I Feel Fine”. The book is in PDF form and is 29 pages long. The writing style is down to earth and easy to follow.

The first thing that I usually do when reading any online publication is to scroll through and scan the document. I’m not really sure why, but I like to do this. The first thing that I noticed is that the book is concise and to the point. There are a lot of prepping books out there that are considerably longer, but have less substance. I really liked the fact that the author picked the essentials and concentrated on them instead of covering all kinds of unnecessary or frivolous topics and items.

For instance, the food storage section consists of detailed and easy to follow instructions on obtaining and storing the basic necessities such as wheat, salt, etc. I especially liked the section explaining 5 gallon pail storage and the method of using oxygen absorbers to prolong shelf life. I am not a prepping expert, but I am not a newbie either, and this is the first time that I have come across this information in such an easy to follow format. I also found the reviews and info regarding grain mills to be valuable in my search for the right one for me. The shelf life recommendations for various foods was good, solid info also.

The section on comfort food I feel will prove to be quite valuable as well in the long run. Learning that given the choice between bland, tasteless food ad nauseaum, or starvation, that some people have chosen starvation historically, is quite sobering.

The remaining sections contain info on medical needs, survival gear, the so called “Bug-Out Bag”, as well as recommendations on firearms according to budget. All basic, solid information that should be taken to heart.

In conclusion, I feel that this E-Book is quite valuable as a sort of bare bones, skeletal prepping outline. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in being prepared, whether newbie or experienced prepper.
