When it comes to being prepared for natural disasters or civil unrest, there is no way an individual can learn all the skills needed to survive any situation. We recommend starting to collect some books on things like first aid, water and food storing, gardening, and any other topic that may be of use in a short or long term bad situation. The 3SV-ERG is going to be periodically updating this page with some great books that you can go pick up for yourself if you are interested in starting your own library.
Books listed here are generally going to have a higher page count and thus better suited for keeping at home on your favorite book shelf.
