Gibbs Smith Publisher When All Hell Breaks Loose: Stuff You Need To Survive When Disaster Strikes - By Cody Lundin -
"When All Hell Breaks Loose"was written by Cody Lundin, co-star of The Discovery Channel's "Dual Survival". Do you ever stay awake at night running through "what if" scenarios? In this age of on-the-spot disaster reporting, the human toll from natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, and tsunamis are evident in a way as never before. With some scientists positing that the impact of natural disasters will only increase, it's more important than ever to have a survival plan in place. Survival expert Cody Lundin's new book, When All Hell Breaks Loose: Stuff You Need To Survive When Disaster Strikes is what every family needs to prepare and educate themselves about survival psychology and the skills necessary to negotiate a disaster whether you are at home, in the office, or in your car.

Lundin's presentation style is fresh, entertaining, and a bit irreverent if not downright funny. This is not your father's scout manual or a sterile FEMA handout. The first half of the book entertains as it informs, describing how to maximize a survival mind-set necessary for self-reliance. According to the book, living through an emergency scenario is 90 percent psychology, and 10 percent methodology and gear. Relevant quotes and tips are placed throughout the pages to help readers remember important survival strategies while under stress and anxiety.

The second half of the book gets down to the brass tacks of what it takes to survive a catastrophe. Lundin offers solutions for finding or creating potable water, storing super-nutritious foods, heating or cooling the home without conventional power, and creating alternative lighting options. Survival exotics such as building a makeshift toilet and composting the results, catching rodents for food, and safely disposing of a corpse are exclusives! Lundin also addresses basic first aid and hygiene skills and makes recommendations for survival kit items for the home, office, and car.

Cody Lundin and his Aboriginal Living Skills School have been featured in dozens of national and international media sources. He has consulted for National Geographic Television, the Public Broadcasting Station, the History Channel, the Travel Channel, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the United States Forest Service, Copley News Service, and the British Broadcasting Corp. His expertise in practical self-reliance skills comes from a lifetime of personal experience, including designing his own off-the-grid, passive solar earth home in which he catches rain, composts wastes, and pays nothing for heating or cooling.

Gibbs Smith Publisher When All Hell Breaks Loose: Stuff You Need To Survive When Disaster Strikes - By Cody Lundin Review:


A must read

Ah, the life-threatening emergency situation. Throw in a dash of injury, turn up the stress and you have a recipe for death. As a USMC SERE school graduate, "survival" books irk me as most are just plain wrong or don't work. THIS BOOK IS FAR DIFFERENT! If you have to buy just one book on emergency planning, this would be it. While his other book addresses the individual emergency scenario that lasts less than 72 hours (lost person in the woods, etc), this book addresses keeping your family, friends and neighbors safe during the hours that exceed it after a major catastrophe (power outages, service interuptions, storm damage etc) on the homefront. It also covers solid advice when you need to go on the move. THE TECHNIQUES WORK. Unlike the water filtration through a pant leg in "survival" manuals (which will get you sick or dead), I have tried ALL of the water purification techniques and most of the fire building techniques... they do in fact work VERY well. Cody does a great job explaining the science behind it as well. The simpler and more effective the technique, the easier it will be to remember and use under stress or while injured. His techniques give you the highest chance of first-try success. Some topics you may never use (how to dispose of a dead body for sanitation, for example), it does open your eyes to what you would TRULY need in an emergency lasting many days (think Katrina) as well as addressing the emotional and psychologcal factors affecting survival and sanity in the following days. If you buy it, you won't regret it.
