If you loved Sharknado and the quirky, we're all in on the joke humor of the film, then you will adore How To Survive A Sharknado. This book is the perfect birthday present or stocking stuffer for the Sharknado afficianado in your life. Satire and tongue in cheek wit run rampant through the how to guide many of us secretly hope we might need one day.

Format: Paperback
I was blessed by Poseidon to read this before its release. We all know Sharknados and most disasters happen in early July. Luckily no disasters happened...yet. Now I am at least prepared for “Beeclipses”, “Ghostsharks”, “Mongolian Death Worms”, and when winter comes I now know what to do during an “Ice Twister”.

The Book was really fun. Shaffer balanced out being funny but still smart as I enjoyed the Moby Dick excerpt to give info into the “Elektrokraken”. This is very much a book for anyone who doesn’t just love Sharkando but other movies that play on Saturday night on Syfy. Some of the scenarios Shaffer wrote about surviving would actually make great B movies. Great book.

I have to assume that the current lack of reviews are because, like me, everyone else is having trouble finding a way to put into words how great this book is.

It would have been so easy to get a book like this wrong. It could have been a dry encyclopedia of "unnatural disasters", or could have disrespected the source material, or could have been little more than a heavily padded cash-grab.

Thankfully it is none of those things. It is hilarious while playing straight with the source material and dense with background, tips, and everything else that you might need to survive modern menaces short of a chainsaw.
