Thank you for your email!

The video is quite good, worth the 8 minutes for sure.

My upcoming book is shaping up nicely. I’m sure people will like it. It will have plenty tips and tricks people can put to use, especially in regards to security, awareness, self defense, driving and SHTF in general. It will complement my first book nicely, “The Modern Survival Manual: Surviving the Economic Collapse”, with practical information.

It’s interesting to see how people get creative to find solutions when they lack resources. I’ve seen many similar things done in Argentina. Maybe not so much because of complete lack of availability like in Cuba but because the prices were beyond the capabilities of so many.

The two books he mentions “El Libro de la Familia” and “Con Nuestros Propios Esfuerzos”, these are books on tips and advice, basically DIY for Cubans that need to pretty much improvise with anything and everything they get hold of. The first one seems to mostly “borrow” from Popular Mechanics and similar publications, the second one is advice from Cubans themselves on how to improvise on several fields from tools, making toys, transportation, health, food and so on.

The first book “El Libro de la Familia” isn’t available, couldn’t find a PDF or even a copy to buy anywhere. If anyone has a pdf link or a copy they are willing to sell I’d love to get one.
The second book, “Con Nuestros Propios Esfuerzos” that one I did find a link to and its free to download:

Of course it’s in Spanish but it’s mostly short lines and paragraphs which you should understand even with basic Spanish. Some of the cooking recipes are even easier to understand since they mostly just list the ingredients.

I found these to be rather interesting from a survival perspective, how to be creative with limited ingredients.
Anyway, hope everyone had a great Easter and if you know even basic Spanish the book is well worth downloading.
