Part of the proceeds will go to Special Operations Warrior Foundations. SOWF provides scholorships grants, education and family counsiling to the surviving children of special operations personnel who have died.

West Point graduate, former Green Beret and NY Times Bestselling author Bob Mayer brings you a different type of survival guide (one you can actually use): a practical step-by-step handbook for the average person, full of valuable information. It’s written using humor, personal experience and training, film & book examples, and real world case studies.

This book lays out the mindset needed to survive from mild, to moderate, to extreme emergencies in a logical flow that moves from preparation you must do now through action in the actual emergency.

Covered are the five key elements of survival; the Special Forces Area Study; how to build you survival A-Team; equipment needed; proper preparation and actions in your home and your car; then covering a range of emergencies from car accidents to burglary to hurricanes, power outages, vampires, wild fires, plane crashes, alien abduction, terrorism and more. Yes, there is humor in the book, because humor is a key element of survival. Certain over the top sections (vampires, etc.) are designed as Kindling pages (not Kindle) that can be torn out of the print version and used to start a fire.

From the basics, the book moves into detailed survival techniques for water, food, fire, shelter and first aid. Finally, the book concludes with extreme emergencies, where civilization might collapse, whether for a short or extended period of time. And yes, that's when we get to zombies (communicable diseases).

This is a book that can save your life and the life of those you love.
