The Prepper’s Blueprint by Tess Pennington

Prepper's Blueprint Review

First let me begin by saying, I read lots of preparedness books…seriously! So when I came across this one by Tess Pennington, who I already admired, I didn’t hesitate! No matter how long you’ve been a prepper, you have probably already heard of her. But if not let me first tell you a bit about her, so you too can have confidence in her writing.

About Tess:

Tess did not just jump on the ‘prepping band-wagon’, it was a part of her life from early on. Being raised by a prepper, quickly taught Tess the importance of preparedness when her family was faced with Hurricane Alisha in the 1980’s. Because of their preparedness, her family was one of a few that thrived throughout the crisis. Years later after college, Tess began working for the Red Cross and learned first-hand how disasters affected others and what they needed to get through the various situations. 

All of this experience led Tess to realize her own need to be prepared. So off on this journey she went, but later realized all of the ‘doom and gloom’ that seemed to surround preparedness. Put off by this, Tess decided that she wanted to be a voice of reason and encourage people to prepare rather then scare them into it.
Amazon excerpt:
“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 evacuations
Layer 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 few.
Layer 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 plans” 

My Review:

This book contains 55 chapters that describes nearly every aspect of prepping you can think of. I personally found this book to be one of the most detailed prepping books I have ever read. It covers nearly every scenario that could happen and explains in detail how to prepare for it.

Tess really took the time to thoroughly explain what items to stockpile, medical considerations, health concerns, communication methods, nutritional needs, alternative power sources and how they specifically work. She also explains how to grow food with different methods, emergency items that disappear first, how to build and hide caches, how/what items to barter with, defense methods, security plans, she goes into each specific type of disaster that could happen and the methods to prepare for them.

The name, “The Prepper’s Blueprint”, is so appropriate because this is so much more than a book. It truly is a blueprint to educate new preppers and seasoned preppers’ alike. I highly recommend it, and know that many people will learn and benefit from reading it.

Remember the number one prep you can have is knowledge and with this, that is exactly what you will get !
