“My bestselling novel, One Second After, has helped to generate awareness about the threats of an Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) and Coronal Mass Ejection (CME), but though based on facts it is ultimately just a story. When folks ask me what they should do to prepare I tell them to put down the novel and pick up The Practical Preppers Complete Guide to Disaster Preparedness by Scott Hunt. Scott’s book provides the real info as to what you can do now to prepare you and your family for most any disaster scenario and come through it safe, sound, and alive.
