Goodreads' link to the book!

Honestly I feel a bit weird giving this book a star rating, since it's more of a how-to type book.
I did end up giving it one, but didn't break it down like I usually do to how I came to that rating. Instead I wrote out my opinions, and what to expect from the book!

Stars: ✦✦✦

• This book goes through real life scenarios, though some might seem extreme, with tips an tricks from experience. It's written by a war reporter, so you know she has seen things.

• It's quite a reality check to help you feel in control. Whether it's by reading a section that applies or going through the book cover to cover. Overall I'd say it's a healthy way of being prepared.

• It's not simply "this scenario has this answer, that one has that", but has some story telling aspects to it, with humor also interlaced.

• I worked as a guard for some months, and in training we go through some worst case scenarios and what to do. The reality is you can never be sure you know everything and are prepared for anything. So simply having a game plan of where to find information is a great start! For example which folders have blueprints, or where the emergency meeting areas are.

" As Confucius once said, “He who fails to prepare, prepares to fail.” "
