    This is the new, 2012 15th Aniversary edition of the LDS Preparedness Manual. This version represents the single largest update ever made over the last 15 years, more than "Doubling" the total size and content of the manaul!!

    This manual has been prepared for, and is intended to be read primarily by, the active members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

    Please Note
    The contents of this booklet are intended to assist individuals and families in coping with emergency preparations. However, final decisions on preparation for actions taken during an emergency are the sole responsibility of individuals. No one knows your needs or can take care of you better than you can-nor does anyone else have that responsibility. Information and examples contained within this booklet are provided for illustration and advice only. Therefore, no liability is assumed by the Editor or any of the Authors for the use or misuse of any information or products contained in this publication.

    This publication has not been endorsed or produced by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and its contents and the opinions it expresses are those of the Editor and the separate authors. While it should not be construed as an official church publication, effort has been made to ensure that all materials are in accordance with general church guidelines on food storage and family preparedness.

    An electronic PDF version of this manual is available to download FREE OF CHARGE to any member of the LDS-AVOW Forums in the "Download" area. This printed version has been made in response to the many requests we have had from members that do not want to print out such a large amount of information. This manual has not been priced to generate a profit as the majority of the contents ARE copyrighted by the various authors, but is intended to cover the actual costs of printing and shipping.

    Well Done Reference book
    5 out of 5
    Date: April 13, 2017
    I have the soft copy, but always prefer a hard copy as their batteries tend to last longer :P Originally skeptical as to whether inclusions of discussion threads would add anything useful and was surprised at the amount and depth of the information in the topics covered. There is definitely plenty of good information that complements the information from the earlier editions and made it worthwhile to get the hard copy as a reference volume for my personal library.

    Location: South Carolina
    Date: December 19, 2016
    Without a doubt, this is the best investment I have ever made. There is a tremendous amount of information on the internet, but even I know some of it is incorrect. I feel confident that the LDS Church has done it's own research and field trials to find the best methods to prepare. And I mean methods. This is not a "one size fits all" book. I am grateful that the LDS Church sells such a wonderful book to those people not of their religion. I cannot think of a better way to spread your gospel than to make everyone feel included and worthy of your knowledge. Now, if I could only find out about some food storage seminars in my area of the country!

    I've had the manual downloaded for some time, but it is just a lot easier to read in a book form. It is big and easy to read with good pictures. I really like it.
