Publisher Comments:

From Hurricane Katrina and terrorist bombings to swine flus uncontrolled outbreak and the freezing of financial markets, the false security provided by modern civilization has now been exposed. While there's no way to predict or avoid these existential threats, this book shows how to be prepared and how to survive them — providing information that could mean the difference between life and death.

Packed with expert tips and techniques, Save Your Ass explains the logistical preparation, survival skills, and mental focus needed to navigate any emergency. Breaking down various crisis scenarios, the author guides readers step-by-step through the counter-disaster process: escaping immediate danger, stabilizing the situation, and then securing long-term sustainability. The book lists key pieces of equipment everyone should own at home and provides important sources of information for any survivor, including websites and other resources that could help your preparation. With more than 300 easy-to-follow illustrations and handy pullout lists of key information, Save Your Ass is the definitive crisis survival guide for today's dangerous world.
