Editorial Reviews

"In the wide variety of topics he covers, you'll find things you probably haven't thought of. Weekly tasks or projects are manageable, and they'll help you eat that daunting preparedness elephant one bite at a time." -- John Wesley Smith (

"Jim has written many books on the topic of survival and preparedness but Countdown to Preparedness is by far my favorite to date! This is truly a "survival 101" type of book...." -- Patrick Blair (

"It will make a terrific addition to your reference library. If you are looking for a systematic way to implement a beginner disaster readiness plan, this book is for you. Even if you have already begun a plan of your own, the weekly task reminders are well worth the cost of the book. Most people do not continue their preparations in such a well thought out way and Jim makes it easy for us to do it." -- Shelle Wells (

"Utimately, I am thoroughly impressed!  Countdown to Preparedness is a phenomenal way to get started in prepping, and looks like it will be great for me to brush up on a few skills as well as add to my storage." -- Maximus (

"I was thoroughly impressed by the amount of wisdom and information packed into so few words. You don't have to be an avid reader or have a dense vocabulary to learn vast amounts of prepping-related wisdom from Jim. It's easy to understand yet covers SO much ground! Whether a seasoned prepper or brand new to the survival niche, I guarantee you'll learn something from this book." - The Busy B Homemaker (

Editorial Reviews

"Two things I especially like about the book are that it is realistic and that I couldn't find any really bad advice....I feel Cobb tells readers what they should hear which is a credit to him." -- Charlie Palmer, Author of THE PREPPER NEXT DOOR

"Prepper's Home Defense has earned a place on my bookshelf by giving me the information I needed to go home and put in place some security procedures and equipment that made my home more secure the day I read the book." -- Stephanie Dayle, American Preppers Network

"I like this book because it simply addresses security issues which are of concern in preparedness circles, and also because even after twenty five years of prepping, it gave me some additional perspectives especially in the areas of structure hardening, safe rooms, and communications.... Jim Cobb gets my wholehearted recommendation for this book." --

"Jim does a great job in laying out the options and helping the reader wade through all of the available weapons choices.  I especially liked his improvised 'hand-spike' fashioned from a hub cap removal tool....  If you like reading about prepping - especially defense - you will like this book.  It's a great compilation of security strategies to help protect your 'fort' and 'family'...." -- Creek Stewart, Willow Haven Outdoor

"Starting from with basic concepts, he has put together a solid work for evaluating your home from a defensibility perspective and explains what items are necessary to have for both survival and defense." --
