If you're new to the idea of preparedness living or just want to find out what the fuss is all about, Food Security for the Faint of Heart by Robin Wheeler is a great place to start. Written in a friendly tone using lay-person terms, it's a neat introduction to essentials like gardening, food preservation, etc. It may pique your interest, provide good resource suggestions for more information, or be the nudge you need to take those practical steps you've been putting off.
Possibly the best part of the whole thing is the positive tone the author maintains throughout. Ms. Wheeler is neither a fear mongerer nor militant about her views. Her generous attitude and consistent reassurances that preparedness does not have to include a full arsenal and guards always on duty to protect your food supply are a gentle and welcome change from many preparedness resources and a softer way to ease yourself into valid and vital information.
