The paperback edition of Amanda Ripley’s wonderful book, The Unthinkable: Who Survives When Disaster Strikes And Why, goes on sale today. It includes a new section called, “How to Boost Your Survival Odds” which she added “because so many people asked for action items to apply the book’s conclusions.” To celebrate the paperback release, I asked Amanda to send me three copies to give away to readers. Copies of The Unthinkable audio book were the prizes in this blog’s first contest in June of 2008. In that contest,Â a preparedness tip was the entry.
So, for this contest I thought I would make the entry: “What have you done in the last year to prepare yourself, your family, your workplace, your kids school or your community over last year?” Either write your answer in the Comment section below or send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll pick three winners by random and print their answers.
I recommend those who cannot wait or who do not win the contest should buy the book here.
