This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
The airwaves and internet are always full of bad news, and it seems as though the bad news is increasing. Each day brings a new threat to your health, safety, and happiness, while authorities and experts urge you to “be prepared.”
But just how should you prepare? How do you plan to survive in the midst of your already busy life? How do you know what to prepare for first? It seems an impossible task, and so most people end up doing nothing out of sheer frustration.
Prepping for Life: the balanced approach to personal security and family safety is a groundbreaking book that introduces you to Adaptive Personal Security, a structured yet flexible method to prepare for a wide range of dangers without being overwhelmed. It gives you the tools you need to understand what and how to prepare while maintaining a happy life balance!
Survival preparations are not "one size fits all." The Adaptive Personal Security method understands that and helps you prepare for the dangers you face in your life — not someone else's. Prepping for Life shows you what Adaptive Personal Security is and how to tailor it to your life. You'll learn how to prepare for a “worst-case” scenario without turning your home or lifestyle upside-down.

A bridge that connects the Island of self-defense to the mainland
I have been in the security and self-defense world for over 20 years. In that time, I have met many experts in specific disciplines of self-defense. From martial arts experts to firearms experts, they all have their niche and teach fundamental principles in those areas. Yet, few see the big picture. Grant is one of those few great experts who have taken a step back to approach personal security from a holistic viewpoint. Grant’s unique viewpoint has allowed him to go beyond the gun, beyond the martial arts, and into a balanced planning for the real threats an average person faces every day. This book is a bridge that is going to finally connect the Island of self-defense to the mainland.
As you read through the chapters, you’ll clearly see that it is more than just a book. It’s a formula for the average person to stay safe and respond to threats in a sometimes-chaotic world. This isn’t a book for the tactical Timmy’s out there. You won’t learn how to shave tenths of a second off your draw time, shoot ½” groups at 50 yards, or break bricks with your bare hands. Grant does a great job showing that those things are not what are important when you put the whole puzzle together. What you will learn is how the average person can plan and prepare to adequately protect themselves and their family in their daily lives.
Get this book now so you can see the big picture of personal security and family safety. I truly believe the brilliance behind this book will be referenced by future generations. I know it will be in my collection and referenced for a long time.
