A Daily Survival Essential: Doctor Prepper's Making the Best of Basics, Family Preparedness Handbook


I recently had the honor of appearing in an interview with James Talmage Stevens aka Dr. Prepper on his PreparednessRadioNetwork. The discussion was an amazing opportunity to trade information with someone who has been on the leading edge of preparedness awareness for over 40 years but beyond that, I was also gifted a copy of his book, Doctor Prepper's Making the Best of Basics, Family Preparedness Handbook. This book is an absolute must have for any person's library, prepper or not!

James writes from a time when the society in general was more concerned about your responsibility to your family for their care and safety. He lays his advice down straight and states that you must be prepared to handle any type of disaster whether that be personal, people-made, or natural disaster. His book carefully outlines all the details of what you need to be ready for the loss of a family member or a debilitating sickness. His book includes detailed spreadsheets for you to fill in the blanks and make sure you are ready on all ends of life if a family member loses a job or if there is a terrorist attack. He has thought through the details of having to leave your home behind in a natural disaster and all the things you should be concerned about in that unfortunate event. He doesn't just explain the basic go-bag or e-bag as he calls it; he outlines insurance documents, household documents, and so much more that you should be aware of in that unfortunate event.

I have been interested in learning about survival details for many years and never before have I seen a book that is so complete and so easy to follow to get your family prepared for unfortunate events. This book has a plethora of recipes for the odd items you stock up like dehydrated milk and whole grains that you may not eat on a regular basis. He walks you through making your back up supplies into a general store, how to store water, stay sanitary, dry meat, work with metal and all the basics that are being rapidly forgotten in our fast paced modern day society. Plus, he has included so many great resources where you can go to get more information both online and off.

If you haven't taken a look at this book, I highly suggest it! It brings all the information you are searching for together into one manual so you can feel confident in the face of adversity.
