Praise for the Worst-Case Scenario Survival series

“What this book lacks in spiritual enlightenment, it more than makes up for with the practical advice you thought you’d never need. Yet it’s only when you read about how to deliver a baby in the back of a taxi, surviving quicksand and mastering awkward lift silences that you realize just how handy a book like this could come in. Some day.” —The Irish Times

“Though neither written nor read in a humorous manner, the book nevertheless amuses in a strange way . . . affords some camp appeal in the tradition of outdated high school safety films.” —Publishers Weekly

“There is something for everyone. It has a wide range of scenarios from dangerous to just downright irritating . . . It is fun, witty, entertaining and you learn something along the way too.” —Quill Quotes
