    Recommended books

    For starters I'm an avid reader and have hundreds of books on multiple subjects and in formats (physical and ebooks)

    What I'm looking for is everyone's recommendations on a complete SHTF book collection, yes I've searched and written down a bunch buy I also chose to start a thread.

    So what do you think is important?
    I've got some books on natural remedies, raising animals, fruits, gardens.

    Just looking to see which exact ones you like. Post up!

    I'm a big advocate of learning from the past and if necessary doing it the forefather's way ..... The Survival Library is a great compilation along that thought & belief ....

    Old school books I read Survival Guns by Mel Tappin,also Tappin on Survival. The information is a bit dated but the premise is there.

    Not a complete collection, that would take pages, but here are some I like:

    “In the Gravest Extreme” by Massad Ayoob
    THE primer on self defense.

    “Deep Survival: Who Lives, Who Dies, and Why” by Lawrence Gonzales

    “Invention by Design: How Engineers get from Thought to Thing” by Henry Petroski

    “The Atlas of Past Times” by John Haywood
    How the Romans built almost anything with wood and rope.

    “Life in the Cold: An Introduction for Winter Ecology” by Peter Marchand

    I'm currently reading a guide to practical pistol shooting techniques for the modern competitive pistol shooter. Quite good.

    I am reading "I Ching" The Book of Change. Eastern philosophy is of great interest to me.
