Surviving Chemical, Biological, Radiological & Nuclear Events

Chernobyl, Fukushima, weapons of mass destruction, chemical meltdown These words inspire fear. But what are the real risks involved? Who could really be affected by a future event, and how does reality compare to fiction? What represents real dangers — nuclear plants, industrial centres, government laboratories — and how can regional or even global crises be handled by private individuals? Finally, what equipment and preparations really make sense in our world of potential catastrophes, and which of them are just a waste of time and money?

CBRN makes an immensely complicated subject accessible to non-specialist readers, covering the most pressing threats in the arena of chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear disasters, and providing the know-how and the necessary information to distinguish myth from reality — and to quickly and capably identify real risks, assess real situations and manage real emergencies, to keep us and our families safe.

  • That slides this book from pure textbook closer to the self-help category but without the neurotic creeping manipulation of that genre, which tends to lure in desperate people and crush their sense of autonomy so that they can join the cult promoted by the person writing the book who hopes to have their own talk show someday. Instead, it arms people with defensive knowledge. If the book has a subtext, it involves transferring from superstitious ignorance to cautious and highly particular knowledge.

  • Piero is the top author of books on survivalism in Europe, including Survive The Economic Collapse, Women on the Verge of a Societal Breakdown, and his latest and extremely relevant book: CBRN - Surviving Chemical, Biological, Radiological & Nuclear Events. We talked about the history of viruses and plagues, his take on the potential economic and social repercussions of the coronavirus quarantines, and his projections and recommendations on and regarding the future.
