Citizen Survivor's Handbook
Includes a foreword by best-selling author Cody Lundin.

The prepper's guide with a difference

During the 1940’s Britain suffered a national catastrophe that would become known as ‘The Great Tribulation’ by its survivors. The remnant of His Majesty’s Government formed a department known as The Ministry of Survivors, the mandate of this office being to help, guide and inform the public through the anarchy around them. During the early years they produced and issued a handbook known as ‘The Citizen Survivor’s Guidebook’.

However, as the situation became more desperate, the guidance within this book quickly became redundant. The Ministry deemed that the only remaining course of action was to produce a second edition; informing people to evacuate the chaos of the towns and cities and flee to the countryside, focusing on wilderness survival and how to be self-sufficient on the move.

This is a surviving copy of that handbook.

How To Analyze People: A Complete Guide on How To Analyze People, Emotional Intelligence, Empath and Stoicism - A FOUR Book Bundle (Body Language, Emotions, Philosophy, Empathy)

A Complete Guide on How To Analyze People, Emotional Intelligence, Empath and Stoicism

A FOUR Book Bundle

How To Analyze People

Become A Master In Reading Anyone Instantly

If there’s a single most important skill you can pick up in today’s globally connected and technically savvy world, it’s the ability to analyze people. How do you determine a good fit for your organization while interviewing potential hires? How do you approach strangers? How about a crush or potential date? How do you build a stunning rapport with clients by diving into their head?

Learning to read other people gives you a definite edge in terms of predicting behavior, modeling your actions to build a favorable rapport with people, forging more fulfilling personal relationships and excelling at building professional relationships. No, I am not suggesting you switch careers to be an FBI agent. However, it doesn’t hurt to possess their sharp people analyzing acumen, does it?

Emotional Intelligence

Master The Strategies To Improve Your Emotional Intelligence, Build Self-Confidence, And Find Long Lasting Success

There are two kinds of intelligenceemotional and intellectual - which also express different parts of the brain’s activity .

Intellectual Intelligence - is based on the workings of the neocortex, which is the more recently evolved layer found at the top of the brain.

Emotional Intelligence - found in the more ancient sub cortex of the brain; its centers are lower in the brain. Emotional intelligence works hand in hand with these emotional centers and the intellectual centers.


How To Protect Yourself From Negativity And Thrive As An Empath

In this book you will learn:

  • The difference between Empaths and Empathy: Most people know what empathy is, but being an empath is something entirely different. An empath is someone who has a very heightened ability to relate to others and feel what they are going through. This will be explained in more detail in the introduction, as well as throughout the book.
  • The Challenges of being an Empath: Any empath knows that the path comes with many challenges, including getting taken advantage of by manipulative people and also just getting overwhelmed by taking on the emotions of others. In chapter two, we will cover the challenges and defenses of the average empath, and throughout the rest of the book, you will get tips on how to deal with this.
  • Tools for a Healthy Life: Did you know that the chakra system is closely related to emotional health and that meditation can transform the way you deal with being an empath? Find out about this in chapters five and six.


The Philosophy Of Calmness

If you are a philosopher or someone who seeks to find principles of better ways of living, Stoicism is an interesting philosophy that guides one into a life that is full of fulfillment and happiness. Don’t get me wrong, it is not simple, philosophy is complex, but many people try to pick bits and pieces of it to make it work for them in some circumstances. If you want to know how to apply various principles of stoicism, learn its history and gain insights on how to better manage the things that are causing harm in your life, then Stoicism is the book that you have been waiting for.
