All things considered, Crisis Preparedness Handbook provides the most practical and best preparedness information in a single volume for new preppers, experienced survivalists, and for all individuals, families, or groups practicing preparedness.

The timing of this book could not be better. In this turbulent world fraught with pandemics, natural disasters, and riots, it is a must-have resource for every family! A comprehensive how-to guide for home storage and physical survival in all types of natural and man-made disasters. Chapters are filled with well-researched content, worksheets, and getting-started tips. The systematic approach truly makes the process of preparing manageable instead of overwhelming. --Janet Anderson, Distinguished Professor of Nutrition, Dietetics, and Food Sciences, Utah State University
As a former CERT coordinator, local emergency-preparation specialist, and avid gardener, I have found Crisis Preparedness Handbook to be invaluable. It provides just the right amount of detail in a single book, especially in those areas where detail is important. I highly recommend this book for anyone at any level of interest in preparing for an emergency. --Kelly Strong, Cache County, UT Former CERT Coordinator
Coming from a long line of independent-minded women, Patricia learned self-reliance and preparedness skills as a matter of course. Whether picking strawberries to earn spending money, sewing her own clothes, or helping with the fall canning, she developed a can-do mindset at a young age. As a young wife and mother, Patricia continued her interest in self-reliance and preparedness and encouraged and supported her husband Jack as he wrote the original Crisis Preparedness Handbook, testing many of the preparedness ideas, methods, and equipment he advocated. Patricia earned a degree in curriculum and instruction from the University of Oregon and a MEd from Utah State University and has been in one teaching role or another her entire adult life. After Jack died in 2005, Patricia continued to publish CPH and promote preparedness ideas. In 2015, she set out to update and revise CPH, but, ever a teacher, she realized she had something to offer others and ended up executing a full-scale rewrite and repurposing of the book, creating an all new third edition. Patricia lives with her husband D. Craig Aston in Logan, Utah, and they continue to develop new skills and practice a self-reliant lifestyle. Their latest self-reliant projects are adding raised beds to their garden and raising a small flock of chickens.
