Mrs. Bedford writes with wit. She has done a lot of research, and condensed it into her book. Although I found incomplete information. I was confused by the statements of not purchasing all you need yet brand names and websites freely inserted throughout the book as must haves.
I am not big on the consumerist lifestyle. And have drastically different views on how much food you should have on hand. At times I felt like I was reading a how to on decluttering and organizing your hoarding. The book itself doesn't teach you beneficiary teotwawki skills, only stock up techniques, things to practice before the worst case scenario, and philosophies.
Mrs. Bedford has good intentions, and does appeal to many mothers out there. However if you are a neophyte homesteader, I would stay far away from this one. But if you are a beginning Prepper, this book reads as a good primmer for your education, without bombarding you with doomer philosophy.
As a beginner tutorial on prepping for the suburbs with children, it is a good start.
