Description

There's never been a better time to be prepared. When Technology Fails:A Manual for Self-Reliance, Sustainability, and Surviving the Long Emergency is author Matthew Stein's comprehensive primer on sustainable living skills including food, water, shelter, energy, first-aid, and crisis-management skills prepares you to embark on the path toward sustainability. But unlike any other book, Stein not only shows you how to be prepared in seemingly stable times, but also how to live in the face of potential disasters, lasting days or years, coming in the form of social upheaval, economic meltdown, environmental catastrophe, and man-made or natural disasters.

When Technology Fails covers the gamut. You'll learn how to start a fire and keep warm if you've been left temporarily homeless, as well as the basics of installing a renewable energy system for your home or business. You'll learn how to find and sterilize water in the face of utility failure, as well as practical information for dealing with water-quality issues even when the public tap water is still flowing. Also, learn alternative techniques for healing equally suited to an era of profit-driven malpractice as to situations of social calamity. Each chapter (a survey of the risks to the status quo; supplies and preparation for short- and long-term emergencies; emergency measures for survival; water; food; shelter; clothing; first aid, low-tech medicine, and healing; energy, heat, and power; metalworking; utensils and storage; low-tech chemistry; and engineering, machines, and materials) offers the same approach, describing skills for self-reliance in good times and bad.

Fully revised and expanded, the first edition was written pre-9/11 and pre-Katrina when few Americans took the risk of social disruption seriously. When Technology Fails ends on a positive, proactive note with a new chapter on "Making the Shift to Sustainability," which offers practical suggestions for changing our world on personal, community, and global levels.

No home is complete without this essential resource. This easy-to-use manual is designed for self-reliant living in today's changing world.

    Comments about InfoWars 'When Technology Fails':

    The more you know, the better are your chances in an emergency situation. We must be physically,financially,operative,morally, and knowingly at our best in order to survive the coming collapse. We are all celebrating right now, but we are on the ship that is about to be upended (remember the movie). Bottom line: Knowledge is Power.
