When All Hell Breaks Loose.




As the frequency of natural disasters increases, so do the odds that you might be forced to survive without the usual trappings of civilized life. And if that time comes, will you be prepared? Survival expert Cody Lundin's new book When All Hell Breaks Loose aims to solve that problem by providing common-sense tips that everyone should know in order to mitigate the impact of a disaster.

Rather than being a dry, boring survival guide, however, When All Hell Breaks Loose comes complete with cartoons, interesting quotations and helpful information for every situation, making it an entertaining and irreverent read. As the author says himself, "If you only read fine literature and drink Earl Grey tea with your pinkie extended, choose another book."

The book covers the important survival basics of food, water and shelter but also gets more detailed with tips on catching and cooking rats, opening cans without a can opener, constructing a makeshift toilet and safely disposing of a dead body. Lundin also discusses basic first-aid and hygiene skills, alternative lighting options, self-defense, communications, transportation and what to include in your own survival kit.

At first glance, When All Hell Breaks Loose seems ridiculous, but by the time you are done reading, it quickly becomes evident that this is a book that could actually save your life. Or at the very least, give you something interesting to talk about at parties.--MO'R
