Description

Product Description

Across the ages, in every survival story, a disaster of some sort plays a prominent role. Sometimes the part is played by the government, sometimes it is played by Mother Nature, and other times, the role is taken on by a random mishap. If we have learned one thing studying the history of disasters, it is this: those who are prepared have a better chance at survival than those who are not.A crisis rarely stops with a triggering event. The aftermath can spiral, having the capacity to cripple our normal ways of life. Because of this, it’s important to have a well-rounded approach to our preparedness efforts.Due to the overwhelming nature of preparedness, we have created the Prepper’s Blueprint to help get you and your family ready for life’s unexpected emergencies. To make a more comprehensive, easy-to-follow program, The Prepper’s Blueprint has been simplified and divided up in a way to help you make sense of all the preparedness concepts and supply lists provided. We have divided the chapters into layers of preparedness.Layer 1: Chapters 1-14, prepares you for those everyday disasters that have shorter-term effects: power outages, storms, injuries, and evacuationsLayer 2: Chapters 15-31 help you to get ready for disasters that turn out to be much longer-lasting: economic collapse, long term power outages, and pandemics, to name a fewLayer 3: Chapters 32-56 prepares you for the long haul and a complete change of lifestyle, the end of the world as we know it: providing food and water once supplies run out, security, retreat properties, and long-term plansThe goal of The Prepper’s Blueprint is to help you find freedom through self-reliance, and ultimately, to get you and your family to a point where you can not only survive, but thrive, in a world that may be permanently altered.

Review

Never with this much conviction have I recommended that a book must be purchased and read from cover-to-cover. 
 
--  Daisy Luther, TheOrganicPrepper.ca

Tess not only writes about preparedness, she lives it.  The Prepper''s Blueprint is packed with advice from an experienced prepper and is exactly what is needed in these crazy times!

The Prepper''s Blueprint provides novice and experienced preppers with a ready set plan to get prepared, complete with "Preps to Buy" and "Action Items."  You won''t find a more wide range of information in a compact format anywhere else.  I highly recommend The Prepper''s Blueprint

--  Todd Sepulveda, Prepper Website - PrepperWebsite.com

Being prepared for the unexpected is sensible, but it isn''t always simple. In The Prepper''s Blueprint, Tess Pennington sets out elementary steps that anyone can take, even those on tight budgets or living in small spaces. Her suggestions are practical and prudent, and she avoids the hype and scare tactics so common on survival websites and in many survival books. Tess is a pro with a thorough understanding of what it takes to survive. I highly recommend The Prepper''s Blueprint."
 
- Lisa Bedford, The Survival Mom - TheSurvivalMom.com

Not often do I read a book that offers a practical, common sense plan for building self-reliance and preparedness for the common man and woman. Some writers in our niche rehash gloom-and-doom theory but fail to lay out action steps for Doing the Stuff on our journey to self-reliance.


-- Todd Walker, SurvivalSherpa.com


There are a ton of prepping books out there and when you have read and reviewed as many as I have, the lines of distinction start to blur.  This book is different and will surely become one of the most useful and valuable prepping books in your library.
-- Gaye Levy, BackdoorSurvival.com

From the Author

For the last few years, many readers have asked me for a downloadable version of my online series, 52 Weeks to Preparedness . As much as I wanted to turn the series into a pdf, I wanted it to be more - much more. I wanted to add even more information and organize and transform it into a book that encompassed all forms of disasters - both big and small. I even changed the name to The Prepper''s Blueprint  to help readers understand that preparedness isn''t just about having a plan, it requires drawing out a blueprint to set a preparedness foundation you can build upon and rely on when the time comes.

I believe that to fully insulate yourself from a disaster of any kind, you need to have a layered effect with your supplies. This will create a well-rounded approach and ensure that you are prepared for the smallest disasters to the most severe circumstances. 
This 458 page resource starts your preparedness efforts from the beginning two week disaster and takes you through, step-by-step, to more longer term disasters. Packed with expert advice, supply lists, skills building techniques and supplemental resources, this book is the most comprehensive preparedness resource available.

I have been following the author''s on-line posts for years. Tess Pennington has a very good series on her web site: <http://readynutrition.com/resources/52-weeks-to-preparedness-an-introduction_19072011> The series is titled "52 Weeks" and it is excellent. In order to prepare the 52 week series, Tess interviewed a lot of experts in the field; many contributed articles for the series. This book is based on that series. I recommend that you go to the web link above and check out the series. If you like what the author posted on her site, you will like this book.

We never know when we may have to "get by." We just had a very large earthquake here in the S.F bay area (Napa, CA). It knocked out power and water. Many people rushed to the store to buy water and, since they had no power and couldn''t cook, many families left their homes to find a place to eat. There were problems because many stores and restaurants were closed. The roads were damaged. The local news reported that the roads were jammed. The earthquake left some homes uninhabitable. The news reported that the people who were unable to return to their homes had no idea what to do. They evidently hadn''t given it much thought until the earthquake left them homeless. Flooding, earthquakes, hurricanes: bad things can happen to anyone. Tess Pennington''s book will help you be prepared.

As I said, Tess provides all the information for free on her web site. That is very unusual. Most preparedness sites charge a lot of money for the information they provide. Although I have already read all of the information on her website, I felt this book would be a wonderful addition to my library. It also makes a great gift. I do want to note that "The Prepper''s Blueprint" isn''t a slick polished book. There are no glossy pictures and some readers might criticize the writing style. None of that matters to me. I believe this is one of the best, well thought out books on the market. Tess has covered every facet of preparedness and I believe the book is both thought-provoking and well worth the cost.

After several months of reading reviews on this book I was intrigued enough to make the purchase. It is a very good buy and offers a ton of information on being prepared for those things in life that most people don''t prepare for. This is a hard copy (paperback) of a book of information everyone needs to know to survive any major disaster. This isn''t just for an end of the world scenario but for real time, real world disasters, be it earthquakes, weather, solar flares or nuclear Armageddon. A hard copy means you won''t be stuck with a dead battery on a phone or tablet that has information on it.

Normal, everyday common sense should tell you that the rule of three''s is what will end life as we know it. Three minutes without air, three days without potable water or three weeks without food is what will kill off mankind as we know it. Hurricane Katrina proved it on a small scale.

What if the power grid fails. Pick a reason, be it a solar flair, a computer attack, a failure of equipment or whatever else causes it, the result is the same. In three days the grocery stores are empty and deliveries are not being made. You cannot access your money. Gas stations stop pumping gas when they run out or the generators fail. Three days after the food stops arriving at the Winn Dixie, the chaos begins. Although 80% of the population will expect the government to arrive and feed them and to save them, Hurricane Katrina proves that those 80% will die sitting on the curb waiting for the government to arrive or in the unrest and anarchy that comes with hunger, thirst and the need to feed your children and family.

This book will help you to prepare for almost every scenario and put you in the protected class. Preparing for the governments failure to be able to save everyone is only doing what you grandparents and their parents did on a daily basis. You protect your kids, yourself and your family from the horror of a world out of control. Step back two or three generations and be as prepared as your grandparents and their parents were.

This book gets you to where you need to be and helps you prepare for any possibility. Prepper means prepared. Be prepared to protect your family from whatever may happen in the future.

The 4 stars is subjective - I think this is a very decent help to novice preppers and the type of people who want to be aren''t really "naturals" or don''t quite have a prepper''s mindset yet.

There is some repetition among the various chapters, but that''s bound to happen in a step-by-step and for some of those things a reminder isn''t necessarily a bad thing.

The step-by-step aspect of it is fairly solid, imo. I agree with how the author has organized things and laid out the steps. I also quite appreciate the real world examples given for each situation, because not everyone is great at imaging things that aren''t in their personal experience, and also because some people just don''t think (not meant as insult, some people just don''t have the type of mindset for it).

I took off the star partly for some of the unnecessary repetition but mostly because I felt things could have been more concise, which would help its major problem - sheer size. Some people will like the absolutely-laid-out way this approaches the subject, but I feel like many people new to prepping may be daunted by its size and/or overwhelmed by the amount of detail and info.

I feel it should have been broken into at least 3 volumes, perhaps in line with what the authors calls ''layers''.

For those already into the prepping mindset, I''d probably give this a 2 star rating. Really for the same reasons as above - so much repetition is not needed and caused a lot of bulk and minutia to have to slog thru. It''s just too big to be that useful to those already into the subject. I did find a couple of aspects I hadn''t really addressed personally, but for the most part it''s pretty basic and I''m not real happy I had to spend so much time just to find a couple of tidbits.

An excellent book. I have been prepping for a long time, first in the UK and then in the Philippines, where natural disasters are common and prepping isn''t a hobby but a necessity. We lived through the October 2013 Bohol magnitude 7.2 earthquake and then the after effects of category 5 Typhoon Haiyan (local name Yolanda) that happened shortly afterwards. Our preparations stood up well, but ''The Prepper''s Blueprint'' identified many other things that we are now acting on.

anyone who says this book is repetitive hasn''t read it. the chapters are organized by topic: e.g. Food, Medical, Home Security, Water, Emergency Communitcaion etc. It assists you in considering different kinds of emergencies and how that could impact your preparedness. It contains a wealth of references to resources above and beyond Tess'' wonderful website and, while there is some overlap to content on her site, we have found it the ideal tool and format to guide us in our move from the standard 3-day emergency supplies/first aid/family contact activities and resources (AKA the west coast standard ''earthquake'' approach) to incrementally longer time periods and to a much more robust self-reliant position.
Highly recommended.

This book is a print version of Tess Pennington''s website, and many of the links are preserved in the book for people to further explore given topics. It''s a book that covers pragmatic preparation for various disasters and interruptions of normal services. It''s not extreme. It doesn''t flinch from addressing real issues that real people have had to face, and offering solutions to avoid as much damage as possible.

It seems to be loosely based on other periods of great human strife - war, hurricane, natural disasters, martial law, disruption of power, etc. It''s probably a sensible way in. No one can "prep" for every single possible apocalypse imaginable. But giving thought to likely situations, and taking measures that are sensible to at least be able to survive for a week or a month without running to the store is not a silly idea. I''m not a prepper, per se, but It''s been our practice to be able to grow food, can and preserve, maintain a working pantry, and keep stock of items it would be very inconvenient to run entirely out of.

The book gives a lot of good tips for a large number of issues that one might face in a disaster. Water, food, fuel, alternative lighting and heating, various tips for what makes things easier, and things that are not worth the time.

I bought the book because I like the idea of having a guide in print in case there is a disruption of wifi or power. It seemed like a sensible idea. I am going to study the suggestions and flesh out our pantry to include some of her must have items. There are more detailed and more extreme guides for living totally off the grid in a bug out situation, but my feeling is that this isn''t likely to be the need for most of us. So, this guide is adequate to give an overview of possible challenges and good responses that might make the difference between being able to cope and suffering greatly.

Coming into this as a non-prepper that has read one-too-many ZA books, this is a very approachable book with common sense advice from the entry level needs of approaching home disaster recovery, to the more hard-core extended period of living on your own. I have had a to-do list building in my head for years around backing up important documents, cataloging assets in my house and building up some minimum amount of food and first aid equipment to deal with some unnamed emergency, but I needed something to get me moving.

I would imagine reading this from beginning to end would be repetitive and dry, but if you are looking for lists that cover your stage of preparedness, with a small dose of background information, this book will do it. For $20 it has gotten me off my butt, and put me in a place where I feel confident that I would be fine holed up in my house for a couple weeks with my family, and that I have a plan on where I would go, and what I would take (in 10 minutes) if I had to bug out.

Being completely new to the topic, this book was invaluable as a starter resource. Other reviewers have criticized it as a ''book of lists'' but that is exactly what I, as a newbie to preparedness (I hate the term "prepper" because of the connotations associated with it), needed to get started. I have more advanced reference materials now, but I occasionally find myself referencing it when I need a refresher on the basics.

If you are someone who has been engaging in preparedness for you or your family for a while, I do not recommend this book. If, however, you are a novice like I was then I strongly recommend it -- it was well worth the cost and, if nothing else, you have a group of lists that is well researched and will save you the 100,000 websites out there that claim to have "the" list that you need.

And, years later, I''ve started using the book as a place to consolidate printed pages and non-book materials to keep them with their associated category.

This book is a decent starter for those who have absolutely no idea of prepping and want a place to start without having to search the internet. The vast majority of this information is available on the net for free. Where it comes in handy is that the information is now at your fingertips and saves you hours looking at a computer screen. Having a book also allows you to make notations in it so it then becomes a mini encyclopedia of survival knowledge. If you need a gift for a totally new prepper then it fits the bill, but if you have any experience then you may want to look at something else.
