A Serendipity Calls is a memoir celebrating the resiliency of the human spirit during life's challenges and uncertainties. Bob and Dianne were young and crazy in love, but a third entity "" the spectre of cancer "" tried to mar their joy. Despite wanting to live and dream about a future much like other young couples, it seemed their path was already paved, and it was nothing close to what they dreamed of. In the face of tragedy, Bob and Dianne were determined to embrace life, be grateful, and fight for the future they wanted together. They had to learn how to find joy amidst turmoil, keep their sense of humour when things were difficult, and support each other through the greatest challenge of their young lives. Time was precious and they weren't going to waste it. Among the losses, trauma, and fear of what was ahead, serendipities of life gave them the strength to keep moving forward. If ever they had to say goodbye, there would be no regrets.

Increasing American fear about terrorism, environmental catastrophes, pandemics, and economic crises has fueled interest in "prepping": confronting disaster by mastering survivalist skills. This trend of self-reliance is not merely evidence of the American belief in the power of the individual; rather, this pragmatic shift away from expecting government aid during a disaster reflects a weakened belief in the bond between government and its citizens during a time of crisis. This ethnographic study explores the rise of the urban preppers' subculture in New York City, shedding light on the distinctive approach of city dwellers in preparing for disaster. With attention to the role of factors such as class, race, gender and one’s expectations of government, it shows that how one imagines Doomsday affects how one prepares for it. Drawing on participant observation, the author explores preppers’ views on the central question of whether to "bug out" or "hunker down" in the event of disaster, and examines the ways in which the prepper economy increases revenue by targeting concerns over developing skills, building networks, securing equipment and arranging a safe locale. A rich qualitative study, Bracing for the Apocalypse will appeal to scholars of sociology and anthropology with interests in urban studies, ethnography and subcultures.
