English and grammar were not my strong suits in school, but what's up with the author's name at the top of the book cover?

James Wesley, Rawles Is his first name Rawles? If not, why the comma where it is? Or am I missing something?

It is a survival guide cloaked as a novel . It decribes everything from prepairing , guns that you NEED , blood transfusions , Improvised stuff and things . just go out and buy it if you can find it .

If said posting of nude women includes her holding fish AND a large set of antlers (Non-photoshopped), then it can stay. Otherwise, No nudity on the Drake board. Skimpy? OK. Side-boob? Approved. -nemo

Could be a Led Zeppelin / janet jackson type of thing where it is cool to fuck with spelling and capitalization of one's name. In this case he has taken the unique position of adding punctuation to his. Clever and original if you ask me.

That said I'd sooner stab myself in the fuck than read this book.

Just read the book. Good story, hardly a survival book. More like a solid prediction of the future.

Economy collapses, WACO disaster, "Red Dawn" happens

I'm about two-thirds of the way through it. Reasonably good fiction. A little too much religion in my opinion. There is some useful information, but it comes too late for most folks. If it's going to happen for real, one should have started preparing years ago. I read a post apocalyptic novel many years ago "Triumph" by Phillip Wylie, back when the cold war was raging. It can probably still be found in the library. I recommend it.
