Disappointed with V. Porlier Y2kBook
It did not seem to say much of anything new or unusual, with the minor exception (to me) of recommendations specific to apartment dwellers.

Bruce Webster's Y2K Survival Guide Book... opinions, please?
Just purchased this book over the weekend, and wonder if anyone else has read it. His scenario section is the one that I wonder about. He seems very optimistic to me.
