Sky-is-falling paranoia isn't helpful. We just need to be alert, prepared, and ready to roll. SIG SWANSTROM and DAVID CRAWFORD help us wrap our minds around why we need to make our emergency preparations a top priority. In the process, they show us how to get ready for a tomorrow that may look very different from today. Similar to CRAWFORD'S bestselling novel 'Lights Out, ' his 48-page novelette 'Ready to Roll, ' which is only available in this book, is a heart-pounding fiction story based on a credible threat. It is also a riveting reminder that grave danger can strike suddenly and without warning. SWANSTROM has extensive experience with crime, civil unrest, and disasters, so he is able to do three things for us. He helps us understand the risks we face today. Plus, he uses the fiction story to give us practical insights, which we can then use to guide our own preparations. And, to further validate his insights, he outlines the U.S. Government's quiet but extensive preparations, so that we can use this information to inform our own planning. SIG SWANSTROM is a security consultant and founder of two firearm defense academies. A former Los Angeles area police detective and SWAT team operator, he has had many deadly force encounters. And, he has also experienced numerous tragic disasters. He was on-scene for two deadly earthquakes, as well as the largest volcanic eruption in modern U.S. history. He was first on-scene at the crash of a commercial airliner in a densely populated residential area, and he arrived minutes after a terrorist bombing of a McDonald's restaurant. In addition, he lived in Guatemala for several years during their bloody civil war. During that time, his installation was attacked three times by insurgents. So, his experience is both diverse and extensive. DAVID CRAWFORD's novel 'Lights Out' is a bestseller and one of the top books in its genre. A theatrical movie based on it, 'The Lights Out Saga; Heroes Will Rise' is currently in production. An avid sportsman, Crawford likes to hunt, fish, hike, off-road, and shoot.
