Publisher Comments:

What skills will you need after a global catastrophe? Whether it’s the end of oil, an environmental disaster, or something entirely unforeseen, Ana Maria Spagna outlines 100 skills you’ll find indispensable for life after the apocalypse. Once the dust has settled, you’ll need to know how to barter, perform basic first aid, preserve food, cut your own hair, clean a chimney, navigate by the stars, stitch a wound, darn socks, and sharpen blades. You’ll also want to build a stable and safe community, so you’ll need to master the arts of conversation, child raising, listening, music making, and storytelling. This fascinating and entertaining book, full of quirky illustrations by artist Brian Cronin, will provoke surprise, debate, and laughter while it provides a road map to greater self-reliance and joy, whatever the future brings.

Synopsis:

ARE YOU READY?

Whether you're prepping for a shipwreck, economic collapse, a zombie attack, or catastrophic climate change, Ana Maria Spagna has you covered with her quirky collection of essential skills for a brave new world — from blacksmithing and falconry to bartering and music making.

About the Author
