"Popular Mechanics' ultimate survival manual will teach you the essential skills to protect your family, save yourself, and conquer any possible danger.

Whether the threat is low or the risk is apocalyptic, Popular Mechanics can help you handle it with lifesaving advice for dangerous situations. Crucial information on how to handle the critical decisions you might face both immediately and in the long term will help you not only survive, but thrive in the aftermath of any disaster.
