Review by: Mike Laughrey on Dec. 14, 2014 :
A primer is a reference book covering the most basic principles of the subject matter, and The Post-Apocalyptic Primer fits that definition very well. It compensates for not going very deep in any particular subject by covering areas most in-depth guides wouldn't touch upon at all. The skills assessment was an excellent addition - more survival guides and disaster prep manuals need to include such a section. Unfortunately, some parts do hold it back; the checklist of suggested information gathering for refugee camps would realistically be applied to every type of settlement, and the lack of instruction in the most basic survival skills (how to start a fire, how to purify water, how to navigate by stars and/or compass, etc.) is a bit jarring given the subject matter. The list of reference books at the end helps though. All in all, not a bad read and potentially very useful.
