Bugging In and Bugging Out: Volume 1
by David E Crossley

Whether you are isolated by a heavy snow fall or flood, cut off from mains supplies by fallen power lines and burst water pipes, unable to get essential supplies because of fuel shortages or a financial crisis, confined to home by a pandemic or terrorist bomb, or forced to flee by imminent disaster, the only people you can rely on for your survival are you and yours.

In this book David leads you through all the preparations you need to make and measures you will need to take to care for yourself, your family and even your pets whether the situation lasts for hours or months.

Based on over 30 years of professional experience, the information is provided in a practical but very readable way and although it is applicable to most places in the world, unlike most of the genre it written with a British and European readership very much in mind. If you want to be prepared, this is the book you need to read.


Bugging In and Bugging Out: Volume 2: Bugging In
by David E Crossley

"This is a well planned and thoughtfully written book. It is easy to read and comes with a 'no nonsense' approach, which makes it a pleasure to refer to. There are some brilliant tips which make you plan just that little extra, enabling you to take your plans in a more focused direction. Whilst I have my own opinions and methods, which may differ to some of the content, I still learned plenty and re-visited my original contingencies. It is also refreshing to that the author comes across from experience without coming across as egotistical, which is where so many other simply irritate me... It is also pleasant that there are not pages regarding on what webbing is best for the AK-47 and how long my beard should be.

"I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who aspires to this as a lifestyle or would simply like to make a few plans to look out for their family in the future."


Bugging In and Bugging Out: Volume 3
by Mr David E Crossley

"Most of the books on prepping that I've read have been by American authors but at long last this is what I've been waiting for! A Prepping book for Brits by a Brit, and what a book! Of all of those I've read this is definitely the most comprehensive, clear and useful. There's no bluster, no posing, just clearly written information by somebody who has been doing for over 40 years all of the stuff I want to do and know about.

Some of it is scarily blunt, but that's because there are parts of prepping that can be scary. But I'm a practical sort of bloke, I'm a cooper, I make barrels, and garden furniture and plant holders and the like using the same methods as I use for barrels, so I like it when somebody speaks or writes in clear English and sticks to thee point like this. You end up better informed for it.

I wish Mr Crossley had written this a while ago, it would have saved me money on both books and gear I bought that turned out to be rubbish or too expensive for what I got. If you're getting into prepping, wherever you live, BUY THIS BOOK FIRST! Some other books might give you some information specific to your country but I'd bet you'll get more out of the things that are the same for all of us everywhere out of this than any of the others."

by Fernando "Ferfal" Aguirre

"After the economic collapse of Argentina, Fernando Aguirre got to see fist-hand what worked and what didn’t when it came to Urban Survival and Preparedness. The hyperinflation and riots were bad, but the daily crime, violence, corruption and failing infrastructure people had to endure for years afterwards was a lot worse. Based on his experience, Fernando explains in this book different tips, tricks and tactics that work when everything else fails."

"Street Survival Skills" focuses on the practical side of preparedness:

  • Awareness.
  • Home and street security.
  • Everyday carry.
  • Blackouts.
  • Survival kits and weapons.
  • How to fight with a gun, knife, bare hands or improvised weapons.
  • How to respond against a terrorist or mass shooter, barricade doors or how to breach them.
  • How to stop a bleeding and carry a casualty.
  • Defensive Driving.
  • Food, cooking, home remedies

... and many others practical skills you definitely want to know when times get tough!

As a practical urban survival skills manual or as complement to Fernando's first book "The Modern Survival Manual: Surviving the Economic Collapse", "Street Survival Skills" is a must-have book in your preparedness bookshelf.
