The world is a pretty safe place ... until it isn't. A major disaster can strike at any time, often without warning. Most people don't think about the possibility that their lives could be upended in an instant – the idea is too painful. If you're considering this book, congratulations! You're one of the proud minority who have decided to take your fate and that of your family into your own hands, rather than waiting helplessly for whatever disaster may befall you.

There are many good books on survival and disaster preparedness, and each one takes a different perspective on what it means to be prepared. There is no “best” survival book: the more books you read, the more you'll learn. Even if you're an experienced prepper, you'll find value in this book. If you're new to the game, this book is a great place to start. It's called The One Minute Prepper because it breaks down the often daunting and complex subject of preparedness into a series of 60 concise lessons that are quick to read and easy to understand. Each lesson ends with a direct statement, an action item that you can start to implement now.

This book touches on the four major areas of survivalism, but focuses on preparation for short-term disasters, because these are the events that are most likely to occur. Also, preparing for a short-term disaster is the natural first step in learning to prepare for wilderness survival, societal collapse or a new Dark Age.

There are no guarantees in life. Every day we take a gamble just by getting out of bed. This book is about learning to play the odds: learning to focus preparedness first on the types of disasters that are most likely to occur, and learning how to increase the odds of surviving them.

The prepper's oft-repeated mantra is “Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.” That injunction may sound dire, but as many have noted, it is truly a statement of optimism, an affirmation of the idea that we are not helpless, that what separates men from animals is the ability to plan and prepare for whatever may come. Join me as we begin to plan.
