Disasters often strike without warning, leaving a trail of destruction in their wake. Yet if properly prepared, you can weather even the toughest circumstances.

With this comprehensive guide in hand, you can be sure to respond confidently when a crisis threatens.


"When Disaster Strikes is a key part of gaining the knowledge requisite to survive disasters. Read it, formulate a plan tailored to your family's particular needs, and then put your plans into action. Someday, you may be very glad that you did."  -  From the foreword by James Wesley, Rawles, editor,

"Every day, disaster strikes someone, somewhere. When it does, only a handful have the wisdom and foresight to be prepared. Mat Stein has done one hell of a job of accumulating the tremendous vault knowledge that can set you apart as one of the few who elect to care for themselves and not wait around for someone else to do it."  -  John McPherson, survival instructor for U.S. Military Special Forces

"Matthew Stein has been way ahead of the curve in recognizing the multiple fiascoes we face in late-stage industrial society. This book is a concise, comprehensive, and deeply intelligent manual for getting through all that in one piece...It's a darn good book -- the kind of thing I actually need!"  -  George Noory, host of Coast-to-Coast AM and author, Journey to the Light

"Stein's common-sense guide is an important tool for you, your family, your business, and community, to avoid costly mistakes during time of crisis; it provides valuable tools and lessons learned so you can be prepared ahead of time and wont have to learn them the hard way while going through a disaster."  -  James Lee Witt, Chief Executive Officer of Witt Associates and Director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), 1993-2001
