Surviving the EndAbout the book

Bioterrorism. Dirty bombs. Electromagnetic pulse attacks. Threats with the power to annihilate our way of life constantly hang over Americans’ heads. But you don’t have to dig yourself a bunker to make it through the worst.

Terrorism expert and former Army Lt. Colonel James Jay Carafano has created the guide for everyday Americans to weather the harshest storms. Surviving the End is a disaster preparation book for average Americans, outlining practical, achievable, common-sense skills and precautions that anyone can take to prepare for the next big disaster. You don’t have to have a cellar full of canned goods or battlefield combat training to follow Carafano’s recommendations. Surviving the End covers situations from natural disasters to global warfare with a down-to-earth style that average families can relate to and learn from.

With advice that could be applied to personal emergencies as well as national emergencies, the tips and tricks Carafano shares aren’t just for doomsday, they’re for every day.
