This book has just about everything in it to survive in a post-apocalyptic world. It's also pretty /comfy/ stuff to just read through
hands on experience anon, it's your only hope.
infographics and whatever else you read are absolutely no replacement for first hand experience.

has your grandfather/pops disowned you or something? as much as you guys love to hate on 'boomers'; they by and large have a ton of knowledge on DIY (of course they don't really call it DIY; more like "not being a limp wristed pinko faggot")
If you need a guide for more than light reference you need to study more, and you need a REALISTIC idea (by study of existing and historic SHTF which is mostly economic downturns) of what is likely to happen in YOUR location.

Doing nearly everything DIY is the best way to prepare for economic downturns because if you have tools and know how to use them you can harvest parts from vehicles, machines and buildings.

Most important is mechanics so you'll have wheels. (Collapse won't be some total Hollywood nonsense. Fiction is bad, truth is useful, study truth.) For example self and bro harvested an engine and gearbox from a van today and it only took a few hours and no tech data because we have years of experience and some formal training. Take an auto mechanics course at your local CC. It will change your life in many ways besides wheely things.

Where you live matters. The smart choice includes all the acreage you can afford (renovation ain't shit but it's hard to build more land without dikes).

Low cost of living, property NOT in a flood plain, storm surge or coastal area vulnerable to storms, but with reasonable proximity to at least one major national transportation artery with a long history of use are all desirable. So is a climate where you do not require HVAC to not die so outages don't matter.
^This. Immersion is good. Auto mechanics teaches basic machinery which happens to be transport. Most high schools got rid of auto shop because it's expensive to run but tactile experience changes lives because of how we learn.
