I remember having nightmares at the time and was very anxious about what was going on between the Kremlin and the Whitehouse. There were other groups who were keen to prepare in the event of natural disasters and not relying on the government to help them out.
Tribe predicts APOCALYPSE after EIGHT previous eerily-accurate prophecies
This seemed very sensible and not at all paranoid so definitely breaking the stereotypes. I also enjoyed listening to the chapter about climate change. Living on an island covered in WW2 bunkers from the Nazi Occupation, the chapter about the doomsday bunkers of the rich and famous was rather strange.
Eric Michael Summerer a new-to-me narrator was perfect for this audiobook, making it sound like it really was the author reading his own book. I will definitely be seeking out more audiobooks read by him in the future. I thoroughly recommend this audiobook if you enjoy nonfiction with a quirky subject. Thanks so much to Hope Roy at Tantor Media for my digital review copy. Jun 03, Ken Heard rated it really liked it.
The Religion of the Tea Party: A Cautionary Tale to Scholars : My Site
Tea Krulos does a decent job profiling those who prepare for catastrophic endings of life as we know it by highlighting their beliefs and fears, but not judging them too harshly or portraying them as crazy folks. Whether it's by nuclear attack, economic collapse, global warming if you believe in that , asteroid strikes or ancient Mayan predictions the world's ending is taken seriously by people who have in place "bug-out" plans to move to the hills or underground. One of the more interesting Tea Krulos does a decent job profiling those who prepare for catastrophic endings of life as we know it by highlighting their beliefs and fears, but not judging them too harshly or portraying them as crazy folks.
One of the more interesting chapters, I found, was the developer of a story condo built in a decommissioned Kansas missile silo.
Krulos shows the culture who are willing to pay the big bucks to buy a small, apartment-sized space in the complex and the belief of those who are now owners that they made a wise decision. The final chapter is also "out there. Krulos focuses on a group that plans to begin colonizing Mars within 25 years. Again, he reserves judgment on those who want to move there and lets them speak for themselves.
The readers can determine if they are nuts or not. The downside is that this is too short of a book.
It's an enjoyable, interesting read that could have gone on for many pages. Krulos touches on the subjects briefly, including bits on Nostradamus and other prophets. He also adds former end of the world predictions that, obviously, failed. On a personal note: Krulos opens the book with a tale of him sitting on a bluff in his home town of Milwaukee on Sept.

I received a free review copy of this book from the publisher. Matt Hlinak Author of DoG Apr 10, Reggie Martell rated it really liked it. My interest is primarily academic. Preppers make u a fascinating subculture. Or rather, subcultures. As Krulos demonstrates throughout this book there are many different ways to approach end times, just as there are many different ways for times to end. And indeed the title and subtitle of this book are misleading. And with that believe in tow, they conduct their affairs accordingly. With the title disclaimer disclaimed, I was happy the title turned out to be miss-leading.
This book is actually kinda fun. In some cases, like the Mars One colony candidates, that life-altering change is personal. Side note: I think Krulos ended with the Mars One chapter because it tells of ultimate hope, and this is not a book intended to frighten or bum out readers - again, despite what the title and cover design might imply. Krulos talked to myriad folks, each of whom draw hugely different conclusions about the trajectory of world events than I do, but none of them sound stupid. This is to Krulos' credit.
He writes with respect for the motives and ideas of everyone in this book. And preppers are drawing fair conclusions, given the information coming out of cable news. They have no ideology, they have target demographics, which they endeavor to frighten each-and-every-second of the day. More info means more eyeballs means more ad revenue. If Fox news could earn a billion dollars a day slinging flower-power and Kumbaya to the masses, they would do it in less than a heartbeat.
This book is Krulos' investigation of the resulting impact.
See a Problem?
All the chapters in this book feature compelling figures and stories. A lot of this story was new to me. Krulos is a good writer. Tea Krulos's book explores prepper culture, and when I first picked up this title I was expecting a book looking only at the prepper culture - the people often portrayed as very conservative, maybe paranoid, looking at conspiracies online who collect food, guns, and military surplus to survive the end of the world. And while Tea Krulos does explore some of this culture, interviewing preppers in Wisconsin and New York, and looking at that culture, I was pleasantly surprised that there was so Tea Krulos's book explores prepper culture, and when I first picked up this title I was expecting a book looking only at the prepper culture - the people often portrayed as very conservative, maybe paranoid, looking at conspiracies online who collect food, guns, and military surplus to survive the end of the world.
And while Tea Krulos does explore some of this culture, interviewing preppers in Wisconsin and New York, and looking at that culture, I was pleasantly surprised that there was so much more to this book. Tea not only explores the prepper culture, but also some of the different cultures sub-cultures that have cropped up with similar goals preparing for the end of the world but going about it in different ways. There were the members of Zombie Squad, an international group of preppers that use the hypothetical zombie apocalypse as a springboard not only for prepping, but for outreach, volunteering, and blood drives.
There are the homesteaders who try to recreate and relearn the skills our ancestors had to prepare food, live off the land, and lead a simpler life. Tea interviews and immerses himself in these different groups, giving us an inside look into prepping, and maybe giving the reader a pause to think - am I ready?
Maybe not to survive the end of the world, but if a serious weather event or natural disaster happened, could you survive for 3 days without access to food, electricity, and all the modern comforts we enjoy? A good book that gets into the prepper sub-culture, exploring this world honestly and with a bit of entertainment.
