This is the type of book I'd need to purchase, because it contains recipes and, not to mention, that I won't remember any of the information two days from now when I return it to the library.

I've already determined that if the zombie apocalypse comes to fruition, I'll be bitten in the first day, so there's no need to prepare for survival because I'll be seeking (your) brains. But, if a natural disaster occurs and I somehow survive Yellowstone erupting, then my husband and I *might* have a chance This is the type of book I'd need to purchase, because it contains recipes and, not to mention, that I won't remember any of the information two days from now when I return it to the library.

I've already determined that if the zombie apocalypse comes to fruition, I'll be bitten in the first day, so there's no need to prepare for survival because I'll be seeking (your) brains. But, if a natural disaster occurs and I somehow survive Yellowstone erupting, then my husband and I *might* have a chance if we prepare a bit more using this book. I'd like to note that this includes only food storage, and there is a lot more to survival depending on the circumstances.

Ever since reading Life As We Knew It I've imagined myself in the characters' situation over and over. Would I join in the grocery store chaos when all hell breaks loose? Or would I be prepared... and then join in the grocery store chaos for additional provisions?

I went into this book with a bit of skepticism because these types of books are typically written for people with children, and besides my dogs, I don't have children to feed and care for. And indeed, the author is a mother and there are sections concerning children in the book. But, it's easy enough to discern what is fine for your family, no matter the size, and the author does a great job of stressing that you can deviate according to what works for your family. I also really enjoyed the fact that she stresses storing foods that your family likes. For some reason this never occurred to me, mainly because if I was literally starving, I think I'd eat plenty of raw tomatoes or whatever gross canned food I don't like.

I think I really would purchase this book if it was updated. At 10 years old, this book has to be outdated in some shape or form.

Overall, I feel slightly more knowledgeable about food storage, but now I have to actually act on a plan. ...more

I am beginning to think that Peggy Layton is the highest authority on books about food sotrage and preparedness - it seems that she authored every other book I find on the topic! I don't know who you are, Ms. Layton, but kudos to you.

I would like to see an updated version of this book as I agree with another reviewer that the information isn't always up to date.

I've taken awhile to review this book because I wasn't sure how to describe it but it finally dawned on me.

I've taken awhile to review this book because I wasn't sure how to describe it but it finally dawned on me. If you were going to have an intro level course on preparedness, this would be a good book to use as a textbook. I wouldn't recommend using it alone but it hits all of the main points in a way that provides a general overview of the topics. It's reader-friendly, easy to follow and wouldn't intimidate those that are very new to the idea of preparedness. ...more

Published in 2002

Some important information is very out of date. For example, length of time food can be stored is way off. Most food has since been proven to keep much longer. And our bodies know how to use both complete, and incomplete proteins such as beans and rice. We don't need to eat them together. And old dry beans can be cooked with baking soda, or easily cooked in a pressure cooker.

This book certainly does not contain "Everything You Need to Know to Keep Your Family Safe in a Published in 2002

This book certainly does not contain "Everything You Need to Know to Keep Your Family Safe in a Crisis"... There should be more about safety and security. The author seems to come from a sheltered environment.

Interesting lists and RECIPES to browse.

Later---I just copied a lot of recipies to try, so I changed my rating from 3 to 4.

I found this book SO helpful. I really needed something to help me set up a plan and this book did just that. She even has an inventory list for you and includes numbers per person.

Covers food storage only. Does a decent job, but all in all, I'd have to say its a little light on the specific info.

I bought this last year and finally got around to reading it. It was really straight forward and simple, so I thought it was very helpful.

Well organized & included just what a beginning (yet serious) planner needs. It included a possible implementation plan/timeline, many checklists, & recipes for stored food. Very practical!

Some good basic information - things you may already know but have forgotten or just were not thinking how important to have on hand!

I wouldn't really say that this book is going to give you key survival information, however, I did feel like it gave great information and charts about how to get your food storage started as well as how to use it.

Good tips, and breaks down the process--everything from food to water to cooking and heat sources. Extensive inventory sheets, so you can figure out what you have and what you need. Recipes are included at the end-haven't tried any of them, but if I had tons of wheat or beans to use, it would be a great resource.

I think EVERYONE should have a copy of this book and read it!!! The author REALLY breaks down the concepts to bite-size chunks and give charts to check off as you prepare. I love her recipes and have tried MANY of them. Whether you are a true beginner or a seasoned pro, there is something in here for EVERYONE!!! This should be REQUIRED READING!!!!

Peggy breaks everything down really well and answers those questions for people just getting going on food storage- where do I start, how do I know how much, how should I store it (buckets, bags), etc. She has charts and calculators, and creative tight storage space ideas, tons of recipes at the end, and a general order of purchase too.

Excellent Food Prepping Book For Beginners

Excellent recipes, the books main focus is preparing for famine type survival scenarios. It covers food and prepping and cooking in great detail. This is a great resource for cooking with famine type foods. It also covers the basics for power outages, natural disasters, but doesn’t go in depth for surviving without electricity long term.
There are many scenarios to prepare for and I would recommend this book for an addition to the survivor’s library. Excellent Food Prepping Book For Beginners
