|affiliate||One Second After -
New York Times best selling author William R. Forstchen now brings us a story which can be all too terrifyingly real...a story in which one man struggles to save his family and his small North Carolina town after America loses a war, in one second, a war that will send America back to the Dark Ages...A war based upon a weapon, an Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP). A weapon that may already be in the hands of our enemies. Months before publication, One Second After has already been cited on the floor of Congress as a book all Americans should read, a book already being discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a truly realistic look at a weapon and its awesome power to destroy the entire United States, literally within one second. It is a weapon that the Wall Street Journal warns could shatter America. (publisher comments)
EMP simulated tests conducted since this book was written indicate that most vehicles will probably continue to be functional after an EMP attack. However, that new information does not alter the sobering warning this story poses. Many of the same effects could result from severe geomagnetic solar storms. (NoOutage.com)
Economic Collapse - Aguirre
This book is a modern survival manual based on the author's first hand experience in the 2001 economic collapse in Argentina. In it you will find a variety of subjects that the author considers essential if a person wants to be prepared for tougher times:
-How to prepare your family, yourself, your home and your vehicle
-How to prepare your finances so that you don’t suffer what millions in
Argentina country went through
-How to prepare your supplies for food shortages and power failures
-How to protect yourself and your loved ones when nine out of ten families
will experience violent escalating crime
This book does not follow the common logic of retreating to the wilderness and the author explains why that will most likely not work. Think this can't happen here in the USA? There are some indications it has already started! Because this is self-published and self-edited by the author for which English is his second language you will need to overlook the grammar. However, it is still an easy read and completely understandable. Very practical and up-to-date as this was published in 2009.

- by Hector Tobar
A Finalist for a National Book Critics Circle Award
A Finalist for a Los Angeles Times Book Prize
A New York Times Book Review Notable Book
When the San José mine collapsed outside of Copiapo, Chile, in August 2010, it trapped thirty-three miners beneath thousands of feet of rock for a record-breaking sixty-nine days. After the disaster, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Héctor Tobar received exclusive access to the miners and their tales, and in Deep Down Dark, he brings them to haunting, visceral life. We learn what it was like to be imprisoned inside a mountain, understand the horror of being slowly consumed by hunger, and experience the awe of working in such a place-one filled with danger and that often felt alive. A masterwork of narrative journalism and a stirring testament to the power of the human spirit, Deep Down Dark captures the profound ways in which the lives of everyone involved in the catastrophe were forever changed.
