    One thought on “When All Hell Breaks Loose: Stuff You Need to Survive When Disaster Strikes”

    1. This book is written for suburbanites who are worried about how to survive disasters like Hurricane Katrina. While it seems like this would be a book for paranoiacs worried about society collapsing, Cody Lundin's writing style and the general style of presentation in this book would put off militia types. In the book he covers a variety of topics including food storage, first aid, self-defense, and how to dispose of dead bodies. The goal is to tell people how to survive when the systems that the [...]

    2. Do you know what materials are best to help regulate your core body tempurature if you could no longer rely on gas and electricity? Do you know how to disinfect water to make it potable without boiling it or using iodine? How are you going to take care of your family's bathroom waste in a sanitary manner if necessary? What could you (safely) eat if you ran out of food? How are you going to cook your food when you can't use the stove?I cannot emphasize enough how much I would recommend this book! [...]

    3. This could have been said in 40 pages. It badly, BADLY, needed an editor. I ended up fearing that one day, at some point in the future, I'll be seated on a plane next to this guy, one of those people to whom you say, "how's it goin'?" and a half hour later he still hasn't taken a breath and you're starting to think a mid-air explosion really wouldn't be that awful an experience in comparison. It's not that I disagree with his political philosophy or survival philosophy (most preppers are what he [...]

    4. For what it is, a survival handbook for days/weeks/months of living without the conveniences of life today, this was a great book. I found it to be funny and engaging as it was informative and thought provoking. When Michael first picked it up, he flipped to the how to clean and eat rodents part and asked me what kind of red-necked book I had checked out. It does have moments where you can't believe he would really discuss some of the things he does. However, I still think it is better to have t [...]

    5. There is some really helpful information here. The problem is that you have to dig through pages of 'hippie manifesto' to get to it. Much of the information in "98.6 degrees Keeping Your Ass Alive" is repeated in this book. It seems to loose something in the retelling, as it is neither as clearly constructed nor as succinct.Lundin has a unique approach to living life and it suits him well in his role as an instructor of primitive living skills and survival techniques. It also offers some good so [...]

    6. This book looks really good, and I want to give it another try. Due to my hectic schedule and the overwhelming onslaught of text and cartoon drawings splattered across the pages, I wasn't able to get through more than one chapter. From what I read, though, there was good psychological information in it. I'll pick it up again when I have a clearer head and can appropriately focus. Let's just hope between now and then stuff doesn't hit the fan and I need to GTFO. Afterall, trying to read this book [...]

    7. Cody Lundin who owns and operates the,"Aboriginal Living Skills School," in the State of Arizona, is the real deal!. This man and author lives what he teaches, and I will say that his book,"When All Hell Breaks Loose," is a MUST read, and is by far the best book I have ever read on preparing for the many types of disasters that could affect you and your loved ones. I really enjoyed the author's entertaining writing style, which is absorbing enough that you can gain some enjoyment from a topic th [...]

    8. Awesome book!Cody gives it straight from the shoulder. I like his approach of being realistic for your sake and not trying to come off as a guru

    9. GREAT BOOKThis book is great. I have read many survival and prepping books but this one is the most practical one I have read.

    10. Although Cody Lundin is now a TV star with his Discovery Channel show Dual Survival, he really has lived the self-sufficient lifestyle and has developed his unique expertise through direct experience. He’s built his own house and lives off the grid and has taught wilderness/primitive living skills for many years. As the subtitle suggests, the book is designed to teach you Stuff You Need To Survive When Disaster Strikes.The book is divided into two sections, the first of which is dedicated to m [...]

    11. In survivalism, bushcraft, and self-reliance it can be very difficult to separate correct actions from incorrect ones; many of these can be attributed to elements of a lack of scientific rigor. Cody Lundin, among all the teachers of survivalism, seems to accept the limits of the discipline of survivalism best and approaches what he considers to be keys - the proper mindset and about the most practical, albeit unsexy, ways to complete this. Lundin does not fetishize the Bug Out Bag, a bag that ha [...]

    12. It's actually pretty good. Very readable, good examples, fun illustrations that help reinforce concepts: I'd happily recommend it to folks who would like to ensure that they, and their families, are adequately prepared for an emergency. The author takes a practical approach to emergency prep, and does well when confined to the realistic things that folks can do to prepare for emergencies. He doesn't do so well when he gets new age-y and quasi-spiritual, his recounting of the many times he's eate [...]

    13. When I first heard about the Ebola outbreak in Africa I was concerned about lacking knowledge and the things my family and I would need in the unlikely but highly impactful event of any epidemic/pandemic outbreaks or any other disaster situation. Besides, I live in an apartment building in a metropolis and I rely 100% on life supporting stuff that I don’t produce. If a crisis really happen, it’s likely that society collapses and we don’t have access to the things we take for granted. I wan [...]

    14. Pretty good "how to be prepared for when shit goes down" reading. The author says (rightly) that there is only so much that you can learn about surviving a life or death situation from reading a book, however reading stuff like this and doing some simple preparation is certainly better than doing nothing and waiting for the government to save yo' ass when things go bad.How much regular old household chlorine bleach does it take to disinfect one gallon of drinking water? This answer to this quest [...]

    15. This was a great read, packed with information and ideas on all sorts of issues one would run into while trying to survive. There are some things I already knew, but the majority of the book was one surprise after another. There are just many things I never even considered, and the author's treatment of the topics felt very thorough.Honestly, I wanted to read this book the moment I saw the title. And the interior has lots of dark humor that resonates well with me. When I started reading, I was m [...]

    16. What a great, entertaining, thorough read about disaster preparation! Yeah, it's an odd topic, but Lundin takes a very down-to-earth, no-BS approach to everything from communications to first aid to cooking towell, you name it (pooping, catching / cooking rats, etc's not all pretty). But it's all covered in one book. It never feels old, although a few chapters from it are similar to his other book, "98.6 The Art of Keeping Your Ass Alive." And that's OK, because the two parts most copied from 98 [...]

    17. Probably one of the best survival, prepping books I have read. Lots of common sense applications, he gets to the root of survival. Keeping a level positive attitude, and using your brain. Example: You see these preppers with all their food stores, but those stores are not in rotation with their everyday food consumption. So eventually all those stored goods will go bad and have to be replaced. Which is fine if you have the time and resources. Which the average family probably does not have. Cody [...]

    18. Maybe not the best survival guide out there, but certainly not the worst, either. What it lacks in depth, it more than makes up for in breadth. Covering everything from the basics of how to start a fire and purify water to more exotic things like how to dispose of a dead body and self-defense tactics, Cody Lundin discusses how to look after yourself, your family, and even your community in the case of a major disaster. And by disaster, Cody is not talking about zombie attacks or alien invasions. [...]

    19. Great book - I like Cody Lundin to begin with, but his lighthearted tone and practical, pragmatic point of view are great. The book is sectioned into major categories of pertinent information about survival in suburbia should a natural disaster/grid meltdown type event occur. It's been on my mind lately as we're more and more dependent on technology to accomplish even the most menial daily tasks. In high school, we had a storm so bad it knocked out power for two weeksour family kept the basic ne [...]

    20. This is an excellent book! I first tumbled onto Cody Lundin watching a television show "Dual Survival" where he demonstrated much of his extensive knowledge of survival in the wilderness. His alternative approach to life was very refreshing. I was very happy to find more of this philosophy in this most informative book. His approach to surviving the apocalypse emphasizes lifestyle changes that focus on mental conditioning and developing a survival attitude. Yes there are the requisite equipment [...]

    21. Very, very detailed. Covers just about all bases and in depth. The author has a good sense of humor and is quite candid. Everything from water purification, to how to defend yourself no matter your age, size or gender. There was a chapter about bathroom facilities and potential digestive issues in a SHTF scenario that wasn't exactly pleasant to read. However, in a scenario like that you'd probably be quite thankful you had such detailed instruction. My only issue is that I bought the Kindle vers [...]

    22. in the mood to read something funny and educationalwhat better than a book about what to do in a catastrophe.ah i know catastrophes are not funny, but i will be laughing my ass off when and if one occurs and i know what to do while everyone else is scrambling around like chickens with their heads cut off, which by the way i think is a very sad thing.e chickens losing their heads i mean. if people lost their heads that would be sad too of course. anyhow, getting back to the the comical part, i be [...]

    23. Substantially thicker that Lundin's previous book 98.6 Degrees, and contains much of the material from the previous book so if you're going to get one of Lundin's book get this one. The emphasis is on urban survival and covers hygiene, food, water, shelter, communication, first aid and more. The first chapter on dealing with stress and fear was rather insightful. He has read a lot and has experience, but there is no bibliography so as always rely on facts not hearsay. I hate his illustrations - [...]

    24. A strange book. I don't think I'd want this as my only survivalism book, as I'm not sure I can relate to a guy who spent years living in a yurt. The book swings wildly from the practical ("canned food is inherently pre-cooked, and when things are nuts you don't want the extra stress of having to build a fire just to eat"; also, despite his yurt-history he's explicitly against thinking you can "live off the land") to the over-the-edge (recipes for cooking mice and rats).But, still, there's plenty [...]

    25. Well, this book was much more mild than I expected which I consider to be positive. I thought it would be about buying weaponry and building a bomb shelter to form a militia. I wasn't familiar with Cody Lundin when this book was suggested from a patron when I worked at the library. I found the information educational and practical rather than the extreme. I actually which that there were more diagrams of some of his explanations and real pictures. I didn't understand some of the cartoon versions [...]

    26. I actually came across this book at a motorcycle supply store. One thing that made this book different than many others I've read was the avoidance of relying on gadgetry that often becomes a crutch.The author addresses the basic needs for survival and supplies solutions readily implemented with items commonly found at the local store. He also isn't averse to suggesting further reading resources that cover a subject in more detail.

    27. I found this book very addictive, I believe Cody Lundin has a lot of great information and has put it all together in a great way. I would recommend anyone who is in the least bit a survivalist to read this. No matter if you are just thinking about being a survivalist to a fairly well seasoned survivalist, there is very useful tips to consider and know in the event of a real disaster. Read it now keep it handy, in case of emergency.

    28. This is a very comprehensive book regarding preparedness and survival skills. This book differed from others I have read, in that he drives home the importance of regulating body temperature. It is not a book full of lists, but rather it is more of a conversation on the realities of knowing what to do in advance, practicing those skills, and taking a realistic approach to preparedness. My favorite chapter was "Should I Stay or Should I Go Now?," which focused on Bug Out Bags.
