i think just about anything is worth a read. maybe there's something good in it. who knows. i would say that some of her(?) articles could have been more corroborated at the least or were just plain unbelievable. that says nothing about the book. all you really need to know is that you should have gold/silver/and lead. after that, try to have a whole mess of storable food on hand. seeds and a place to grow them. a safe water supply or at least a supply with some filtering device. an escape plan. and guns. or at least some weapons. forget paper money. you will use it to heat your home if you hoard it and have a woodstove. and if there is an economic collapse and you have it in the bank, it will become worthless and/or disappear. god help you if you live in a city. short of that i don't know. luck? prayer? the last name of rockefeller?
