There are thousands of articles, posts, stories, and how-to books out there on just about any subject you could ever want to learn about. When it comes to being prepared though, the pool of information to pull from gets smaller. Even with a smaller pool, it can be hard to know what is solid information and what is just something someone threw together to make a quick buck. It’s a pickle! You need information but it needs to be good information, too.
Thankfully, there are several tried and true books to help newbies prepare with solid information and realistic steps. Many books seek to fear monger the reader into a panic and then try to sell them all sorts of stuff that the person likely doesn’t really need. Since the original movement of the 1970s, there are authors who are well established that are either still writing or endorse someone in the next generation of preparedness.
Newbies prepare at different paces and books allow you to master one area before moving on. They also offer you the ability to look and plan ahead for the next phase of your preparedness journey. Click the link below to get a good resource list of books to help you prepare!
