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.

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?

FUNNY, FUNNY, FUNNY.... and informative! A must have for world travelers, explorers or adventuresome people who find themselves in unusual situations (like me)! I bought this as a gift for my psychiatrist and she loved it... of course I had to read it cover to cover before I wrapped and presented it to her!

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.

A good book for reading and amusement. Many of the scenarios would not be executable by the average person as it would require practice and execution BEFORE the emergency. An informative C.Y.O.A. book for reference.

Practical approach to unusual situations. I bought this book for my "survivalist" husband more as a joke to one of his obsessions. But, turns out the book offers great info. Thanks!
