Strauss: My books never begin as books. They usually begin as some sort of lack I recognize in my life and try to fix with the help of the most qualified experts I can find. Often, these people are not in the public eye, but hidden in a splinter subculture. Death is a guillotine blade hanging over our heads, reminding us every second of every day that this life we treasure so much is no more important to the universe than those of the 200,000 insects each of us kills with the front of our car every year. Nature knows no tragedies or catastrophes. It knows no good or evil.

Soon, the whole endeavor began to seem like the biggest travesty ever

Soon, the whole endeavor began to seem like the biggest travesty ever. If something horrible happened in America, would a St. Kitts passport even get me out during a state of emergency? What if it was confiscated by customs agents? Or what if Victor, Maxwell, and Wendell were in collusion and just ripping me off?

This book made me laugh. It was enormously entertaining.

I have a lot of "dooms-dayer" and "prepper" friends and family members who are strong believers in the apocalypse and that right now is the time to stock up on food, water, guns, ammo, cigarettes, and tampons.

And before this book, those ideas just didn't speak to me. Not even remotely.

So I read it to become more educated about the mindset of the "dooms-dayers," and perhaps gain some insight on how to best prepare for an apocalyptic scenario, or at least the moment WSHTF.

Mission accomplished. This book delivered both outcomes for me. It also cracked me up, and made me quite grateful for my life, however temporary it may be.

After reading it, I walked away feeling all the more committed to living my life with the intention of making the world better, as opposed to preparing for my potential doom or limping survival.

Here's a beautiful, apt, and terrifying snippet that sums up the essence of what I gleaned from the book:

"On every highway, there's a drunk driver hurtling at 80 miles an hour in two tons of steel. In every neighborhood, there's a thief armed with a deadly weapon. In every city, there's a terrorist with a bloody agenda. In every nuclear country, there's a government employee sitting in front of a button. In every cell in our body, there's the potential to mutate into cancer. They are all trying to kill us. And they don't even know us. They don't care that if they succeed, we will never know what tomorrow holds for us.

The tragedy of life – robbing it of its fullness and brilliance – is the knowledge that we might die at any moment. And though we schedule our lives so precisely, with calendars and day planners and mobile phones and personal information management software, that moment is completely beyond our control.

Death is a guillotine blade hanging over our heads, reminding us every second of every day that this life we treasure so much is no more important to the universe than those of the 200,000 insects each of us kills with the front of our car every year.

Nature knows no tragedies or catastrophes. It knows no good or evil. It knows only creation and destruction. And one can never truly be happy and free, in the way we were as children before learning of our mortality, without At some point confronting our destruction. And all we can ask for, all we can hope for, all we can beseech God for, is to win a few battles in a war we will ultimately lose."

Neil is a great writer, and on top of these eloquent insights, he has hilarious stories peppered all throughout this. It's almost like reading a too-true fiction. I definitely recommend reading it if you're interested in the subject.

With that being said, I do not agree with the deliberately provocative title, even though I think it's a great curio. This book is not likely to save my life - but some of the ideas this book offered just might be worth pursuing well before the moment WSHTF.

This is kind a wild read, but it's a good read. If you are a prepper, or just worried about where this world is headed, read this book. As someone who would not describe myself as paranoid, I often feel paranoid when I am buying bugout bag items or working on survival skills. Reading this book put a lot of those things in perspective and gave me a lot of good ideas about how to avoid becoming a victim in the event the word goes to sh!t. This is not a survival book. It's a journey worth reading.

I really enjoy Strauss's style of writing. It's a fun narrative with factual information intertwined. I have read just about every book he has written at this point. His journalistic style keeps my attention and his dry sense of humor is pretty aligned with mine. It was a good book for me...I think you'll enjoy it too.

Great, great book. Much like The Game, and The Truth, Emergency is written in an autobiographical fashion. Neil Strauss dives deep into the world of Survivalist culture.

Neil has a way to write in an entertaining, easy-to-read manner. While the book isn't exactly a step-by-step guide, Neil dives into the many different forms of survivalist culture, from Elites getting second passports to lock-picking expert "urban survivalists". Towards the end, Neil utilizes all the skills he's picked up along the way, stepping into action when a true catastrophic event lands on his doorstep.

It wouldn't be a Neil Strauss book without discussing relationships. Neil includes how his ever-consuming survivalist lifestyle affected the relationship for better and for worse with his then-girlfriend. Very entertaining.

Even if you read it for strictly entertainment purposes, you will find this book amazing. If you are a fan of Neil Strauss, I highly recommend this book.

This book is really about the author's journey to self-reliance in disaster scenarios with some of his "aha" moments along the way. It has a "Game" flavor to it if you've read that book. I suspect some of the research is now pretty much out of date since it was done a decade ago . In the book, the author lives in fear and addresses it with learning and experience. It's a pretty awesome journey. This is a single guy's view and much doesn't apply much to working families so it came up short for me. If you are single, have lots of free time (e.g. no full-time job), focus, and the money, you too can do all the things in this book in a 2-3 years.

Great book, not what I expected. As a matter of fact, at first skip I thought I made a mistake. I was looking for lots of survival techniques and tricks. Turns out, it is about how to learn all these things, and what you might not have thought was necessary to learn. So in the end, I read it straight through, and was impressed by what he accomplished.
