Author Prepares For Every Disaster

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One author is prepared for the worst.

In his book Emergency: This Book Will Save Your Life (HarperCollins), Neil Strauss provides tips that can help a human being deal with any kind disaster that should come their way.

For Strauss, writing the book was a way to let go of his own stress and fears over the growingly dangerous world.

He explains, “It seems like nothing bad ever happened in the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s. Then 9/11 and Katrina and the Bush era happened. I had a generational panic attack so I decided to do something about it and make myself as safe as possible.”

To prepare, Strauss spent days in the woods with only a knife learning survival skills, turned off all his utilities for three days to see what he’d need to do in a blackout, and taught himself to shoot a gun, preserve meat, and even fly a plane.

He says, “All my friends and family thought I was out of my mind. Now they all call me for advice.”
