Howevever, it's terribly misrepresented, on its cover and on this page. The font for the title, the use of the word "castaway" (a term used on CBS's Survivor), the coastal photograph (alluding to most seasons of Survivor, but to only a limited number of situations in the book), and the sales offerings (such as getting this plus Spoiler, about someone who regularly predicted Survivor happenings in advance) all suggest or imply that this book has ANYTHING to do with that reality show.
