BOOK REVIEW: "Contact!: A Tactical Manual for Post Collapse Survival" by Max Velocity

Recently, I got the chance to read the book "Contact!: A Tactical Manual for Post Collapse Survival" by Max Velocity (Kindle version) and I thought it would be prudent to post a review here on the blog.  By way of background, the author claims to have spent time in both the U.S. and British military, including work in the Special Forces arena.  While I cannot speak to the veracity of such claims, I can say that they are bolstered by the simple fact that he surely seems to know his stuff.  He also expresses the fact that he is a Prepper in his now-civilian life, so he fits right in with us around these parts.  Needless to say, he brings a certain skill-set to the table that a lot of us lack, and, for that reason alone, giving his book a read and being sure to add it to your permanent post-collapse survival library is a must.

Very simply put, this book represents an absolute wealth of tactical information for protecting one's self, family, and retreat during an all-out societal collapse scenario, in which law and order are the responsibility of individuals within their particular spheres of influence, rather than of a large over-arching governmental bureaucracy.  The author has taken military tactics and adapted them to procedures that can be followed by normal, everyday people, and, for that reason alone, it is a must have... especially for those of us lacking in military and/or tactical law enforcement training of our own.  All in all, I would recommend it as an excellent resource, and I am proud to have a copy for my own personal survival library.

So, when your comment doesn't appear immediately, *DO NOT* throw a hissy-fit and assume I'm refusing negative comments (yes, it really happened). I approve pretty much everything that isn't obvious SPAM, negative or not, and I promise you that will include your hissy-fit comments, accusing me of a grand conspiracy to squash dissenting ideas (also really happened). The result, of course, being that you will look like a fool, and the rest of us will laugh heartily at your stupidity.
