Disclaimer: Yes, I did the search function first. How useful it is has yet to be determined.
If you have never read any of Laurence Gonzalez's books on survival, you need to. These are not books on how to start a fire underwater or the best
techniques for beheading Zombies. Instead, he discusses thought and the power of the mind. And not just while you have been stranded on Mars with only
a multi-tool and a six pack of Mountain Dew but every day of your life.
How you view the world, how you think during challenges, and how you deal with it all afterwards are critical. More critical than any piece of gear
If I hear one more discussion on the perfection of a particular rifle during SHTF or whether to trust your neighbor or not, I am going to puke. It is
meaningless unless what you have upstairs is on target with the circumstances around you. The gear and the plan will follow.
I have read too much crazy survival stuff here on ATS and am concerned some are really missing the boat. I gain nothing by recommending these books,
but you do stand to gain by reading them. Flame me if you want, beans and bullets crowd but you will need more than just "stuff" to carry
