Quote from: Blast on July 26, 2021, 11:48:35 AMDon't bother with "The Knowledge: How to Rebuild Civilization in the Aftermath of a Cataclysm".I bought it and was really disappointed. It doesn't actually give you the information you need. It just tells you to build a library showing how to actually do X, Y, & Z because that technology is really useful. Think of it as a starter document to guide your actual learning and future book purchases, not a source of information itself.I don't know anything about the other three books. Two I found that are good for real-world urban/suburban survival are:Tom Brown's Field Guide to City and Suburban Survival: https://amzn.to/3zCFmvcWhen All Hell Breaks Loose: Stuff You Need to Survive When Disaster Strikes: https://amzn.to/3eXPdUo-Blast

The short version is that, after becoming a father, the author decides to learn what he'd need to do to survive some type of apocalyptic event (he uses a catastrophic earthquake as the thread to tie the book together) and then goes about learning various skills needed (physical fitness, medical, wilderness survival, weapons, etc.). It's not a book about how to do those things, but more of a discussion about the sort of skills which would be useful and why. The sub-heading for the book title says it all: "One man's quest to learn everything necessary to survive the apocalypse."
