Getting Home - Review: Dio's Workshop

Dio gives Getting Home a solid review.  He's not known for pulling punches either:

From his review:

I want to preface this review with a quote from the first chapter.

“This book has been written for the individual who has limited to intermediate knowledge regarding disaster preparedness. It was written in a manner so as to not overwhelm them with unnecessary jargon or lengthy, technical descriptions of items. The goal is for this material to be short, concise and easily understood.”
With that quote in mind, this book hits the mark. There are sections of the book where I disagreed with the author on premise, but not because he is wrong, only that the points no longer apply to my level of experience/training.

One key point that continually comes up in the book is to consult with experts when in doubt. This goes hand in hand with my call to “Practical App”. Book learning is fine, but it can NEVER replace practical experience. Consulting with an expert may not be practical app, but it beats running on blind faith or trusting unguided instinct.
