    1. I found this book powerful than Dr Baker s previous book, Navigating the Coming Chaos, although that might be a function of the intervening year plus of business as usual in the face of worsening predicaments i.e maybe I need to read what Baker has to say than I did last year instead of an objective assessment of the merits of both books The first half of this book comprises a series of essays that Baker initially wrote for the blog of the late Michael Ruppert, and while it reveals the piece w [...]

    2. I read half of this The beginning I really liked and then I read a bit about how when push comes to shove i.e when the world has collapsed and we re post apocalyptic am I ready to basically kill my cat aka put her out of her misery I don t know it got me really sad because I realized I had NO idea what to do about cat food if I couldn t buy it in a pet store and I think about this with my food and I m like meh I ll figure it out, I ll grow it but I also don t eat meat really.d Boo does Suffice i [...]

    3. I ll probably re read this at some point, because I have very contradictory feelings The author assumes that civilization as we know it is going to crash sooner, rather than later and she gives guidance on preparing beyond the usual food water security She does not look kindly on industrialization, Americans, organized religions, or politicians, but at the same time thinks we are capable of forming new ways of living if we are forced to go back to pre industrialization times She talks about gett [...]

    4. It s true, It s real, It s scary, and we have to face it, and deal with it Carolyn is someone to look at a tough subject, in the eye and deal with it.
