worst-case scenario survival handbook (book)

first published on oilzine.com

My granddad used to say that if you hadnít wrestled a shark you hadnít lived. Of course, he hadnít. He never quite saw the irony. Had he read this little gem, he would have been fully prepared to do the deed if and when it arose.

Providing not-entirely-serious advice on lifeís little inconveniences (escaping from a mountain lion, landing a plane, surviving being lost in a desert, etc.), it proves to be an indispensable guide to modern living.

Whether youíre a conspiracy theorist, a desperately unlucky type who always ends up in the wrong places at the wrong times, or just want to be amused, this is the book for you. If youíre all three, then this book could actually save your life (if all else fails, shove the book in the alligatorís mouth). Some people do really encounter these situations, so donít laugh.

Filled with over 40 essential tips, all (technically, not romantically) illustrated, you can take The Worst Case ScenarioÖ however you like. The information is factually correct (we think Ė certainly looks like it is), interesting, and easy to read and understand, but the authors certainly know that survivalists (for Ďsurvivalistsí read Ďnuttersí) wonít account for most of the sales.

Anyone who is anyone should own this book. Itís a reference guide to sit up there with Rogetís Thesaurus.
