Challenging economic times understandably foster a climate of negativity. History has shown, though, that adversity can bring out the best in us. Truly, when the going gets tough, the tough get going.

And when the going gets really tough – as in natural disasters and environmental extremes – simply reach for Popular Mechanics’ April 2016 Survival issue.

Survival, of course, has to do not only with preparation and having the right equipment. When confronting the apocalypse, ultimately it all comes down to attitude. Nothing says it better than the introduction to the headline story, “Fight or Flight”:

“Maybe more critical is the mindset of the person using that equipment, the strength and skill to make the correct decision when the situation most calls for it. There are many choices that will need to be made after the virus hits or the storms begin.
“The first decision is the truly important one:
“Do you stay where you are? Or do you run?”

The April issue of Popular Mechanics is on sale NOW!
