Format: Paperback
what to do when a wolf pack attacked me. Had I carried this very practical handbook, I would have known immediately that I should charge the lead wolf...

Fortunately I have little likelihood of needing survival tips from attack by wolves, but I have often stepped in dog droppings and needed a sure-fire method of removing all of the evidence. My daughter is a musician and thus may some day be trapped under a collapsed piano and will need to know she should lie still. Her father will need to know exactly why she was under a piano and whether she was alone during and immediately before the ordeal. Unfortunately this book answers the first question, but not how to tactifully ascertain the answer to the second.

The fact is this book is just plain fun.

It is a pretty good little book in the same line of other "Worst Case Scenario Guide of...." Nothing spectacular, but if you like the other books, you will enjoy this one.

I like this book because it addresses all emergency scenarios. It is very direct and does not hold back on advice. You can go directly to a chapter on tornadoes or flooding, or winter storms, etc., and know what to do to be prepared. The best advice is that most emergencies are common occurrences as opposed to war or terrorism. We need to be prepared for the possible daily events and the "biggies" will be covered too.

The way things are going, everyone needs this. My only problem is once electricity goes through the roof, or just quits all together thanks to bone headed government policies...how will I read my Kindle version about how to survive?

Good read. Easy to understand. Much is basic information you already know, but there are some good suggestions that sound reasonable.

Only negative is the illustrations have fine fine print that is not readable on a 7" kindle fire hd. You cannot zoom them to read the information.

While I wouldn't recommend using this text for everything life throws at you--life has a funny way of producing problems whose solutions will never be printed, or printable--there's some good advice and a lot of deadpan humor thrown in here.

If you're stuck in a waiting room and you had to choose between this book and an old copy of a magazine about crocheting, then this book would be better.
