—J. Wayne Fears, author of The Pocket Outdoor Survival Guide

—Stephen Brennan, author of Bugles, Boots and Saddles: Exploits of the U. S. Cavalry and Survival Skills of the Native Americans

—David Black, author of What to Do When the Shit Hits the Fan

Get this book!”
—Roger Eckstine, author of Shooter’s Bible Guide to Home Defense
“Never in the history of humankind has our world been so uncertain, so absolutely unpredictable. The more than one thousand people injured or killed in the first bombing of the World Trade Center in New York City never suspected the attack. Of the six thousand commuters who were casualties of the Sarin nerve gas attack on a crowded Tokyo subway in 1995, not one of them saw it coming. The three thousand people who died in the September 11, 2001 attack that destroyed the World Trade Center were like wise unawares. The countenances of terrorism are the faces of cowards, people who are by themselves insignificant to the operation of the world; but it’s this very facelessness that makes The Terrorism Survival Guide a must-read for everyone who isn’t a hermit living on a remote mountaintop. If you can't anticipate it and you can’t prevent it, then you need to learn to survive it, and this book is a big step in the right direction.”
—Len McDougall, author of The Ultimate Sh*t Hits the Fan Survival Guide
“As a former emergency manager and terrorism response instructor, I find The Terrorism Survival Guide to be an easy-to-follow guide that gives essential tips to survive. The information inside is the same as what I give my own family.”
—David Nash, author of 52 Prepper Projects
