This is a how-to on creating your own water storage. I'm a bit of a prepper and bought this in an attempt to understand water management. The book appears to have started life as a more-loosely printed affair, perhaps a DIY pamphlet or something, as it's got that size and feel, with rough paper and black-and-white images of varying quality.

There are illustrated ideas throughout this slim book on a number of scenarios.

I eventually settled on buying and storing a couple dozen large water containers, which I kept for emergencies and in fact used on two occasions when the local water supply was disabled. Not exactly a zombie apocalypse, but who's complaining.

I’d see the publicity guy come on the set and I’d go hide in the rafters. The crew would be like, ‘I haven’t seen him.’ And then they’d leave and I’d go back to work. Because that’s what’s fun: the doing, not the talking.

—Kurt Russell
