The book is extremely entertaining and it might save your life, too. It covers scenarios James Bond would aspire to.

"How to endure a Turkish prison"
"How to survive an elephant stampede"
"How to survive a nuclear attack"
"How to take a bullet"
"How to control a runaway hot air balloon"
"How to break a gorilla's grip"

Plus other scenarios that are more practical and more likely for one to encounter.

"How to free a limb from a beartrap"
"How to survive on an iceberg"
"How to survivean attack by a pack of wolves"
"How to recover a motorcycle spinning out of control"
"How to survive a 16-car pile-up"
"How to survive a mine collapse"

Bottom line, there is some practical advice here for emergencies, but it is the entertainment, laugh-out-loud factor that makes it worth it.

Format: Paperback
Ever imagined yourself in an elephant stampede? In a runaway baloon? Buried alive? Gripped by a gorilla? Stuck in a bear trap? Ever dreamed of being a hero(in) rescuing everybody in a helicopter that the pilots left?

If you have this book, then you have solutions to all these situations: You will be able to control the baloon, control the helicopter and land it, survive from a pack of volves, deal with a quadruple blowout, how to survive a nuclear fallout etc.

Remember the scenes from the movies that our hero(in) has to survive some kind of "tricky" situation (his/her food poisoned let's say)? And remember yourself thinking about what would you do if you were him? That's right: This book is absolutely for you!

Most probably you will never use the tactics you have read in this book. But believe me, it's a really interesting, fascinating, funny book that you'll finish in less than an hour.

The price tag is nice also. It's amazing, affordable, fascinating, a good time-passer. What would you want more?

This is a very fun read. If you're into thinking up odd 'what if' scenarios, this book is for you. How to hot wire a car, how to survive an elephant stampede, even how to defeat a crocodile! It also has more practical life-saving advice, like how to perform an emergency tracheotomy. Most stuff in here you're likely to never use, but if you do - maybe you won't pee your pants or be immobilized with fear?

This is a very entertaining book. I'm not sure how many of the scenarios would ever come in handy but it makes for great conversations.
