The Knowledge: How to Rebuild Civilization in the Aftermath of a Cataclysm
by Lewis Dartnell
Penguin, $17.00, 352pp
Published: March 2015

The back cover blurb challenges us with the question - If life as we know it ended tomorrow, would you know how to survive?

Dartnell has given us a “quick start” guide that explains the underlying basis for so many of the things we take for granted. For instance, the chapter on Agriculture asks us a question that is vital in the aftermath - How do I walk out into a muddy field with a handful of seed and make food out of it before winter sets in?

Aimed at the average person with sections on Agriculture, Food & Clothing, Medicine, Power and more, this is a thought provoking guide that every person should have in their home. Highly recommended. ~~ Stephanie L Bannon
