The Survival Savvy Family Book arrived in my mail box with much anticipation. Not only because I follow the author’s blog but because I knew Julie would have something new to offer readers on the topic of survival. I couldn’t be happier to have the opportunity to review this awesome tool.
If you read my blog regularly you’ll know that I don’t consider myself a prepper. I write about prepping for the non-prepper. But that may just what appeals to me about Julie’s book so much. You don’t have to be a doomsday prepper or a hardcore survivalist to appreciate the information and know that it is viable skills that we can and should obtain.
The Survival Savvy Family Book Review
The Survival Savvy Family is written by Julie Sczerbinski of the Home Ready Home blog. She’s got a firm grip on the subject of family preparedness. So I know going into the book that she know her stuff!
First things first – the book is the perfect size to pop in my purse and cart around with me. This is important in my world because reading is stolen in little moments here and there. Call me crazy, but that’s kind of important.
Now onto content! I love that this isn’t your average flare and scare survival book. Julie isn’t spending a bunch of time convincing you on prepping but her opening chapter does a great job of laying it out. This is great for the beginner prepper or one whose only knowledge of prepping is Doomsday Preppers. She asks some good, probing, questions that get you thinking about keeping your family safe in an emergency, disaster or economic turn. I like that she has 3 categories for disasters: personal, natural and man-made. This is a great way to get focused on your plan of attack, so to speak….
