ZS novice needs help finding books

Post by mslmspd2 » Sat Feb 16, 2013 12:06 am

Hey y'all,

I recently realized that I am still, after too long, a Zombie-prepping novice. Can anyone recommend some good guide books on different ZS related matters? First aid, disaster prep, food/water prep, survival/outdoor prep, communication prep, OPSEC, etc?

Also, if anyone knows of any Zombie Squad-ish training courses in the SF bay area, or any other interesting sources of information (podcasts, youtube videos, whatever) please share.

THANKS!

My first book was Les Stroud's Survive. I use it for reference all the time when I'm "honing my skills". I am currently reading the Disaster Preparedness Handbook and the department of the army's- Solider's Manual of Common Task, Warrior Skills level 1. I also have a manual on edible wild plants.
I find Barnes and Noble has a nice selection of books for prepping, survival, and homesteading. I never leave without buying 1 or 2.

Those are just the (usually temporary) freebies - sometimes you want to pay for quality.

I like Arthur Bradley's Handbook of Practical Disaster Preparedness (latest edition) for a comprehensive planning guide. There's also Niki Jabbour's The Year-Round Vegetable Gardener, and Tim Ferriss' The Four Hour Chef has some awesome survival/preparedness chapters. (Seriously!)

+3 on Arthur Bradley's Handbook of Practical Disaster Preparedness - reading it now.
