Terrorist attacks. Natural disasters. Domestic crackdowns. Economic collapse. Riots. Wars. Disease. Starvation.
What can you do to prepare for when it all hits the fan?
You can learn to be self-sufficient and survive outside the system.
After the last few years of violence and terror, of ethnic and religious hatred, of tsunamis and hurricanes—and now of world financial meltdown—Strauss, like most of his generation, came to the sobering realisation that, even in America, anything can happen. But rather than watch helplessly, he decided to do something about it. And so he spent three years traveling through a country that’s lost its sense of safety, equipping himself with the necessary tools to save himself and his loved ones from an uncertain future.
With the same quick wit and eye for cultural trends that marked The Game, The Dirt and How to Make Love Like a Porn Star, Emergency traces Neil’s white-knuckled journey through today’s heart of darkness, as he sets out to move his life offshore, test his skills in the wild, and remake himself as a gun-toting, plane-flying, government-defying survivor. It’s a tale of paranoid fantasies and crippling doubts, of shady lawyers and dangerous cult leaders, of billionaire gun nuts and survivalist superheroes, of weirdos, heroes, and ordinary citizens going off the grid.
It’s one man’s story of a dangerous world—and how to stay alive in it.
Before the next disaster strikes, you’re going to want to read this book. Because tomorrow doesn’t come with a guarantee…
‘The world is in crisis. If you’re looking for an escape plan, this book is it.’
‘Documents Strauss’s journey from latte-sipping city boy to steely-eyed survivalist, a journey in which he learns to kill a man with his bare hands, studies native American tracking skills, buries caches of supplies in the forest and basically readies himself for everything from a biological catastrophe to a stubbed toe…Strauss’s book is good fun, written with dystopian black humour and a febrile sense of impending doom. There are plenty of helpful photos…plus graphic novel-style illustrations that explain everything from evasive driving skills to how to turn your credit card into a knife.’
‘A sprawling, rambling beast of a book…Strauss learns a lesson along the way: how to be useful to others, as well as how to save himself. If you have seen the future and it looks like Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, you might want to read this book,’
