I received this book through LibraryThing's Early Reviewers program.

This book gives advice for surviving a multitude of different scenarios. The information could be useful in one of these situations though I question if you would have it near or have the time to look up the advice. A few sections were tongue-in-cheek but the great majority is serious. I found it a bit hard to finish as it became repetitive and dull. I also don't plan on maneuvering on top of a train and trying to get inside.

The book is a bright yellow hardcover. It is small enough that it could go in your camping gear. I personally would not waste the space in my backpack. I have seriously mixed feelings about this book. ( )

A blend of humorous and practical advice, the worst-case scenario handbook is a fun gift. The hand cover edition is sturdy and well-made. Previous editions of this one have included almost all of the same content, so I wouldn't buy if you already own a different version. For those looking to purchase for the first time it's a good one.

This is a guidebook on how to survive should the worst happen. It covers all sorts of deadly situations from truly catastrophic to minor injuries. It's full of grim humor, but useful for the survivalist or accident prone. A little depressing though.

"The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook" is a grab bag of useful, humorous, and interesting information about a variety of potentially disastrous situations you might find yourself in. Covering everything from quicksand to plane crashes, rampaging bulls to tsunamis, there is a wealth of survival information packed into this book.

I don't normally comment on the physical book itself, but it this case it bears mention. The hardback is nicely constructed, compact in size (about 5.5" x 7.25"), and feels like it would go naturally in a bugout bag or hiking pack.

That having been said, the book wouldn't be particularly useful in the moment of disaster; by the time you were able to get to the book and look up the right chapter it may be too late. This information is best if studied ahead of time.

"The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook" would make a great gift for the adventurer in your life.

NB: I received a free copy of this book from LibraryThing's Early Reviewer program. ( )

Ever want to know how to escape from quicksand, survive nuclear fallout, or tell if a clown is murderous? This book is for you. Funny and informative.
