Summary
  • This book will provoke surprise, debate, and laughter while it provides a road map to greater self-reliance and joy, whatever the future brings. Whether it's the end of oil, an environmental disaster, or something entirely unforeseen, Ana Maria Spagna outlines 100 skills you'll find indispensable for life after the apocalypse.
  • While it's true I only have 10 of the "100 Skills You'll Need for the End of the World (as We Know It), " thanks to Ana Maria Spagna's cheerfully reassuring text and Brian Cronin's charmingly practical illustrations, I am confident I'll be able to handle any and all catastrophes our planet throws at me! -- Susan Beth Pfeffer, author of"Life As We Knew It" / "The Last Survivor" series Move over, 50 Simple Things You Can Do to Save the Earth. In this trusty little volume, Ana Maria Spagna has created a handbook for how to be a better human: more self-sufficient, more cooperative and kind-hearted, more in tune with your surroundings. This is no mere primer on reskilling; it's a humor-infused exploration of how to live more lightly on the planet while getting in touch with your more virtuous self. -- Jennifer Sahn, editor of "Orion" magazine

This fascinating and entertaining book, full of quirky illustrations by artist Brian Cronin, will provoke surprise, debate, and laughter while it provides a road map to greater self-reliance and joy, whatever the future brings
