|About the Book|
Several years ago we began our own research on the Y2k-Millennium Bug. At the very beginning we were hopeful they would find the magic bullet and everything would be okay. That hope was short-lived. As more documented information emerged we realized that we were at the threshold of the most potentially devastating, man-made disaster, ever experienced in history. A predictable disaster that is set to strike at - midnight, January 1, 2000 and within 24 hours, will to some degree or another, affect everyone in the world.As we began to consider the possible ramifications of Y2k to our lifestyle, we became increasingly convinced that we needed to prepare for, possibly, a worst case scenario - and do it now. But, where to begin? What should we prepare for? What if there was no electricity, no water, no heat? How would we keep warm? How would we eat? What would we eat? What should we store and how long would it last?
