    Just started re-reading a book of mine just out of pure interest. I've always found war history endlessly fascinating and even how it can be applied to surviving the end of the world or the apocalypse or whatever you want to call it. Urban Guerrilla Warfare by: Anthony James Joes is a...

    One of the common questions I see repeated over and over on the forum - What are the best books for a survivalist library? Since the topic of books is brought up so much, I would like to post an article books. Some books should be a given, such as religious books and first aid books. Who...

    I pretty much quit going to the doctor back in the 90's. I've always been fairly healthy, but when I hit 40, I noticed I was bouncing back a little slower than I had been only ten years ago. Last weekend my buddy's wife turned 40 and it took me until Tuesday to fully recover from that bash...

    Hi, I'm newto the board and have been lurking for a while just researching. I am interested in stocking up on manuals and other books to keep in my BOL to have on hand as references. I am looking for medical and dental guides, food preservation, wild plant ID, weapons, water, etc. I know that...

    I thought this post would better suit the disaster preparedness section better than the book section. I have been looking for books for a library when the SHTF, so far I have the complete foxfire series (i think, 6 books), the SAS survival handbook, and a book called the complete outdoors...

    So I'm in the library-building phase. So, please give me your thoughts on the best books for a SHTF library. With the following assumptions: 1. Physical books only, made of paper. 2. No religious texts: the ones that matter to me I already have, and that's probably true for anyone else who...

    not for entertainment but for knowledge in prepping and/or PSHTF, living as much off the grid as you can? I just finished reading "When All Hell Breaks Loose" and I'm currently reading "The Encyclopedia of Country Living". Thanks for any and all suggestions. Suzanne

    Have you given thought to the value of a real nice stocked library in the event of eowawki. Not only to educate the young but to rebuild. Those with technical skill sets will be in demand but to educate next generation in these expertises with text books would be a God send.

    I'm looking to make a "Survival Library" and I'm looking for ideas on this. Is the best way to print it and then make a notebook out of it? How would you organize and sort all the different files? How do you know what kind of files you're going to need? I'm sitting here thinking about it and if...

Books is a great resources for tips and knowledge and I suggest that start building your own with some mixed books in different subjects. Books may be expensive so I suggest that you that you look on...

    Does anyone think it would be a good idea, as a collective community, to create a new forum section that combines all kinds of varying facts that have been verified about surviving in general? I'm talking various stickies of general survivalism, urban survivalism, suburban survivalism, nature...

    All the talk of a doomsday seed vault got me thinking. Plenty of survivalists are preparing by buying book on essential skills such as agriculture, medical skill, medicinal plants and others. This is all well and good, but if we should encounter some kind of EOTWAWKI scenario, won't we need...
