“I’ve started to look at the world through apocalypse eyes.” So begins Neil Strauss’s harrowing new book: his first full-length work since the international bestseller The Game, and one of the most original-and provocative-narratives of the year.

After the last few years of violence and terror, of ethnic and religious hatred, of tsunamis and hurricanes–and now of world financial meltdown–Strauss, like most of his generation, came to the sobering realization that, even in America, anything can happen. But rather than watch helplessly, he decided to do something about it. And so he spent three years traveling through a country that’s lost its sense of safety, equipping himself with the tools necessary to save himself and his loved ones from an uncertain future.

With the same quick wit and eye for cultural trends that marked The Game, The Dirt, and How to Make Love Like a Porn Star, Emergency traces Neil’s white-knuckled journey through today’s heart of darkness, as he sets out to move his life offshore, test his skills in the wild, and remake himself as a gun-toting, plane-flying, government-defying survivor. It’s a tale of paranoid fantasies and crippling doubts, of shady lawyers and dangerous cult leaders, of billionaire gun nuts and survivalist superheroes, of weirdos, heroes, and ordinary citizens going off the grid.

It’s one man’s story of a dangerous world–and how to stay alive in it.

Before the next disaster strikes, you’re going to want to read this book. And you’ll want to do everything it suggests. Because tomorrow doesn’t come with a guarantee…



The Men Who United the States Low Price CD: America’s Explorers, Inventors, Eccentrics and Mavericks, and the Creation of One Nation, Indivisible

$19.99 - $15.22

(as of Sep 18,2019 14:22:36 UTC – Details)


Simon Winchester, the acclaimed New York Times bestselling author of Atlantic and The Professor and the Madman, delivers his first book about America: a fascinating popular history that illuminates the men who toiled fearlessly to discover, connect, and bond the citizenry and geography of the U.S.A. from its beginnings.

How did America become “one nation, indivisible”? What unified a growing number of disparate states into the modern country we recognize today? To answer these questions, Winchester follows in the footsteps of America’s most essential explorers, thinkers, and innovators, such as Lewis and Clark and the leaders of the Great Surveys; the builders of the first transcontinental telegraph and the powerful civil engineer behind the Interstate Highway System. He treks vast swaths of territory, from Pittsburgh to Portland, Rochester to San Francisco, Seattle to Anchorage, introducing the fascinating people who played a pivotal role in creating today’s United States.

Throughout, he ponders whether the historic work of uniting the States has succeeded, and to what degree. Featuring 32 illustrations throughout the text, The Men Who United the States is a fresh look at the way in which the most powerful nation on earth came together.

Survival Pantry: Top Guide to Store Food and Water for Emergency

This book contains essential steps and strategies on how to keep yourself prepared in the event of a natural disaster or other catastrophic occurrence that may require you to be prepared without help from the outside world.
Disaster can strike at any time but it does not mean that it is necessarily the end. The people that survive are the ones who are prepared for calamitous events. If you are able bodied, you can make sure to stay active and keep yourself in shape. You can take survival classes and learn how to grow your own food and how to filter water to make it clean and drinkable, but all of this training will be of very little use if you do not already have the tools you require. While there is no denying that learning how to survive is crucial, it is just as important to keep a supply of food and water for you and your loved ones in case disaster strikes. In this book we will take a look at creating an environment to store your food and water to keep you prepared.
