Many books on the nuclear threat are fear-mongering, shallow and written with a political twist. This book is the complete opposite.It deals with the survival challenges after a massive nuclear war with Russia, but it can be applied to any nuclear emergency. Some of the things covered are:- Myths and facts about nuclear bombs.- Mental preparations.- Evacuation considerations.- Building fallout shelters.- How to build a radiation meter from household items.- How to construct a shelter ventilator.- Nutritional requirements, processing foods in primitive conditions, food storage matters and cooking methods.- Surviving without doctors, the proper use of potassium iodide, obtaining antibiotics.The style is simple, straightforward and practical. This manual is superb.
This edition is not as good as the previous versions. the format is smaller and the pictures and illustationa seem to be scaned from previous printings having severe image degradation. The information is still great.
This is a must read for anyone interested in what a nuclear blast would do. Also have very detailed instructions on how to protect your self from the blast and what to do after. In the place the world seems to be at now, I would highly recommend this book to interested people. Not as dry as I thought it would be either.
This really does have quite a bit of good information. It will scare you if you are not in the frame of mind to internalize the information, but the research is well done and I believe if you have and understand the information contained within, you will have a much better chance of surviving a potentially very scary experience.
Not that I'll (hopefully) need to enact any of the steps outlined here, but it sure is interesting (and chilling) to learn what I'd need to do to survive in the event of global thermonuclear war...
Reading is easy and pics and illustrations are too! For anyone with interest in this subject... this is the book to have! Look no further. This has it all and more!I have highest recommendation for this book to anyone concerned or interested in this subject.
An important book to have in your library if the worst happens. After reading several books on how close we have come to a nuclear attack, intentionally or accidentally, I wanted a resource book. The information in this book was what I needed. It's a little dated but has what you will need to know.
The author Cresson Kearny has truly given what I wanted to know; how to survive when North Korea fires nuclear bombs into the Metropolis of Seoul, South Korea. It's well detailed yet easy to understand by laymen. The myths and facts about the dangers from nuclear weapons in the Chapter 1, page 3, are fine advisory information about nuclear weapons.If not yet translated into Korean, it should be. All the citizens of Seoul should read this book in order to get their peace of mind.Sang So Nam, retired architect, Seoul, South Korea
