    I ordered James Wesley Rawles latest
    "How to Survive the End of the World as We Know It"
    I am only half way through it but I can tell already that it will be a staple in my survival library.

    In the "those who bought this also bought" ads on Amazon I saw this book by Sam North. I just finished reading it and it is really good. It deals with a worldwide flu pandemic and those who survive it. While it isn't really written from a preppers mindset, it does show how society could come unravelled very fast. It was a spooky scenario that could happen all to easily. The only downside I found was that there wasn't any real survival knowledge to be gained from it. And it is written by a Canadian author and parts of it were frustrating for an American survival minded person to read. For example hardly anyone has guns. The survivors carry sticks to fend off wild dogs and rats in the cities. And some of it is wishful thinking where survival is concerned. For example some of the characters hole up in a luxury hotel and survive by barricading the doors and they run the generators and raid the restaraunt for food and are "safe" from the outside. Yeah, ok.
    Like I said it isn't for in depth survival knowledge but what I found appealing about it was the breakdown of society and how people began to relate to each other when anyone you meet could be carrying death with them. Very realistic in that regard.

    A good doomer read.

    "Another Place to Die" by Sam North

    Product Description
    Another Place to Die is a vivid account of individuals caught up in a worldwide flu pandemic. Set in Vancouver, Canada, this is a terrifying and realistic scenario of people facing the horror of a killer virus that will kill millions. Everything your Government said would protect you is a lie. Make a choice. Escape to a safe place or tough it out. As martial law is declared and soldiers have orders to shoot anyone breaking curfew, normal life begins to break down. Mass burial pits are being dug. Everyone is afraid of each other. The Pandemic is coming. Where will you go? Where exactly is safe? Another Place To Die is an essential survival manual everyone should read.

    For real in depth survival knowledge I highly recommend Rawle's new book. I am reading it now and it is great info. I have already come across several things that I had not thought of. Read it with a highliter in hand!!
