The Disaster Playbook


The Disaster Playbook is the backbone of your disaster prep process. While we hate to throw the B word around, you’ve found your prep bible, and she’s ready to take you to church! (Note: if you really like the idea of going to church, steel yourself for the coarse language you’ll find within.)

  • 8.5″×11″ spiral-bound book
  • Companion to the I Will Thrive Manual
  • Well-researched guidance, thorough checklists, corny jokes, fun activities, and more to help you get prepared for anything!
  • Printed on 100% post-consumer recycled paper. (After all, a good disaster plan is a printed disaster plan. You can’t rely on the internet during an emergency.)

For a more complete prep package, the Disaster Playbook is also included in our signature offering: the Disaster Bundle.

The Disaster Playbook has it all, from guides to mentally preparing yourself to do the work of creating disaster plans, to checklists of gear you’ll need to meet your emergency needs (and beyond). It also has the glue that holds any successful endeavor together: jokes of varying quality. It packs the biggest punch when paired with the I Will Thrive Manual, and is an even more effective tool as part of the Disaster Bundle.

Think of the Disaster Playbook as your textbook. The I Will Thrive Manual is its companion workbook that makes it easy to compile your final disaster plans. These two books reference each other, so we recommend buying them together, but you can purchase the Disaster Playbook on its own if you prefer to create your plans from scratch. Even without the Manual, the Playbook will give you everything you need to create your disaster plans on your own and experience peace of mind once you’re fully prepared.

What it contains:
  • Concise instructions for completing your disaster preparations in three parts: gear, planning, and practice
  • Baseline disaster info and gear explanations to contextualize your prep and help you develop a sense of what aspects matter most to you
  • Plenty of jokes, cartoons, photos, stories, and activity pages to keep you going whenever the utilitarian core of the content rears its boring head
  • Emotional intelligence (this game is 90% mental!)
Why you need it: 
  • DIY prep means hours of research, which we’ve already done for you
  • Most people trying to prepare without a guide give up before they’re fully prepared!
  • You want to prep so you’ll be safe and comfortable when there’s a disaster… not so you can live off-grid forever
How we make it easy: 
  • Preparing is a complex task; the Playbook makes sure you’ll keep returning to where you left off until you’re done
  • We meet you where you are and give you the “preparing to prepare” tools you need to succeed
  • We’re pretty funny, if you like gallows humor
