Are you as tired of all the mega-disaster and end of the world movies as am I? Do you believe the “Preppers” on reality TV are just a little bit... well, over the top?
The simple truth is that disasters come in all forms. Quite often the difference between a large or small disaster is perception.
A large disaster can be when the roads ice over and you are stranded for hours or days on the highway. A small one is when you must get out of your car in bad weather on the side off the road and install your snow chains. Thus turning a 30 minute commute into a 2 hour trek. The weather event was the same the reaction difference is what this book is all about.
Optimism bias: The false belief that it can’t happen to me. Procrastination, apathy, complacency, and defeatism will kill as easily as a tornado. You may be reading this because you know something could happen to you. Perhaps deep down you do not expect timely or honest help from the government. You know in your heart that your life and the lives of your family is your responsibility.
