Let me just start by saying I've read thousands of books in my lifetime. I was that little kid carting out as many books from the library as my arms could carry, and not much has changed over the years. I've read all sorts of books that I have found to be insightful/helpful, but I can count on one hand the books that truly, fundamentally changed the way I view the world. This book is one of them, and frankly, the others don't come close. This is a dark, dark topic...science fiction...for now. Nonetheless, I feel lucky to have read it. Like the old saying goes, "Knowledge is power." Naïve no longer.

*sigh*
wow
Having learned that Congress considers this a book all Americans should read, I bought it. I've had a mind toward prepping ever since I read Lucifer's Hammer, probably 25 years ago. This book takes you a step further into the psyche of survival. I marvelled at the ill-prepared, was impressed by unique ideas, and was numbed by the vast destruction.
My biggest disappointment is that Congress and the Pentagon have discussed this book, consider it a "must read" even. Yet, I just heard about it this week, roughly 10 years later. Have they acted? No. Have they encouraged the American ppl to prepare? No.
The average American lives 3 days to hunger. What would you do to protect your family from those who would kill them to feed their own family?
Most people say "Anything!!"
But they won't store rice, beans, oats....they don't own a water filter or know how to build one.
You'd steal and kill ... but you won't prepare.

And I'm the weird one.
READ THIS BOOK.
Then read Lucifer's Hammer.

Then DO SOMETHING!

One of the most eye opening and terrifying books about something that COULD very well happen in our day.
I dont think people truly realize our reliance on power and its affect it was taken away. Tell me do you have enough medication to last more than one month? Do you have enough food to last if you cant get to a store, of if the store is out and wont be restocked? Do you know how to grow your own vege garden? Obtain water from a creek and boil it? Do you know how to hunt, fish, protect yourself in times of danger?
Even if you live in a great neighborhood and know your neighbors and friends well, do you know how they would react in a dire emergency?
I want to think that we would take care of each other, but one never knows what we as humans will do when faced with true hunger.
I would suggest and EMPHASIZE that everyone have a plan. North Korea is a larger danger than people realize. You dont want to be caught with your pants down. Plan now.

This story is okay. A lot of the plot points are obvious, like the "accidental" discovery that an old car that happens to be at the main character's house just by happenstance is so old that it works after the disaster because the car has no modern electronics. What is missing is the probable dependence on bicycles to get around a town when cars or other technologies no longer work. Instead, people in this book try to live life like they used to (dependence on others to help them out, etc.) instead of facing the facts and doing for themselves. Maybe that is the point of the book as some people don't realize it until far too long. The story does point out the dependence that we all have on modern technology and what happens when a disaster takes out communications, transportation, or anything motorized, like water pumps, in one second. The story does make you want to start saving food and especially medicines (a major point of this book), but the importance of independence as each city becomes a citadel and all transients are suspects. Interesting points include some of the site specific issues like farmers in the Midwest having an abundance of corn and people elsewhere in need of food but no easy way to transport it to relieve hunger.

I bought this for my dad, a prepper.

He said that it terrified him, and made him feel secure in knowing that there are ways to protect one's family simply by learning about various little survival techniques. All I know is that as soon as he finished this book, a brand new shelving unit appeared in our garage, followed closely by roughly 50 gallons of assorted water bottles and jugs snugly fit within.

He really enjoyed this book, said I should give it 5 stars and recommend it to other preppers or people genuinely interested in an exciting book about survival.
Naa
Surprised there's so many positive reviews. It started out ok, but then the author spent what seemed like half of the book with dialogue between the town leaders who were discussing all the problems that could or will happen. It almost seemed like the author was using this time to exercise his knowledge or this kind of doomsday event. I was really disappointed and could not continue through this lengthy part of the book. It could have been so much more if he stuck with the suspense and mystery that started in the begin, but then it fell flat.

I read quit a few apocalyptic novels and this one was pretty brutal, but only because it was steeped in what I believe to be a realistic scenario. As Mr. Gingrich writes in the forward, we need to be prepared for this sort of attack. Just today I read in the news about China's new microwave tech, table top size that could accomplish similar results to an EMP. I tell my own students that we live on a knife edge of civilization. Let the trucks and trains stop rolling for even a few days, and things would get pretty desperate. Everyone should have some sort of emergency plan and supplies. Reasonable precautions. You wear a seat belt don't you? A good book, but harsh enough I am still deciding whether to buy the next one.
