A few new people have started following this blog since I last posted, so I would especially like to extend a warm welcome to those newcomers. As you have probably noticed, this is possibly the most inactive blog on the planet, being updated only two or three times a year, usually when I have made a significant addition to the book. I am pleased to announce that I have recently added two new chapters to the “Background” section. One is entitled “Maintaining your professional credentials post collapse” and was recently published as a guest post on Dmitry Orlov’s blog. The other is an entirely new chapter entitled “Where to live?” These chapters, like the book, are written mainly for medical professionals (doctors, nurses, pharmacists, dentists) but I hope that others will also find the general principles useful.
As always, the latest version of the book, together with the new chapters, can be downloaded free of charge from
