Take A Look
Take a look at a few practical tips from the quirky, tongue-in-cheek 100 Skills You’ll Need for the End of the World (as We Know It) to ensure you’re ready to take on whatever Hollywood (or the real world) throws at you next.
While it’s true I only have 10 of the 100 Skills You’ll Need for the End Of The World (as We Know It), thanks to Ana Maria Spagna’s cheerfully reassuring text and Brian Cronin’s charmingly practical illustrations, I am confident I’ll be able to handle any and all catastrophes our planet throws at me!
In this trusty little volume, Ana Maria Spagna has created a handbook for how to be a better human: more self-sufficient, more cooperative and kind-hearted, more in tune with your surroundings. This is no mere primer on reskilling; it’s a humor-infused exploration of how to live more lightly on the planet while getting in touch with your more virtuous self.
This little tome is filled [with] practical advice on how to answer a veritable plethora of problems one will face in a new world order — everything from making one’s own shoes to brewing one’s own beer, from weaving cloth to butchering animals, from porch sitting to negotiating, from keeping bees to throwing pots.
A survivor’s guide to all kinds of situations, whether they be shipwrecks, economic ruin, or anything else, [this book] covers everything from foraging techniques to hiding, harnessing horses or mules, grafting plants, home brewing and hoarding, and more. Leisure readers and survivalists alike will find it easy, inviting, and filled with a wider range of concerns than most survivalist books.
