Need some reading about resilience that is fun and at times cocky? Try this interesting account of the author’s (it’s written in a first person style, so let’s assume it’s him) striving to become self-sufficient, a survivor, or in our language, to increase his personal resilience. Written with a lot of humour, irony and self-criticism and laced with pictures to illustrate the experiences and cartoons that illustrate some of the lessons (and hint at another story). Amusing, and probably the most fun doomsday prepper book around.
