You can never know too much about survival

The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook by Joshua Piven

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A fun reference with lots of practical advice for survival in various situations. I liked the scope of the book, which ranged from detailed instructions on how to land a plane and cross a river infested with piranhas. It had a fun humor to it as well, with advice on how to ditch a meeting at work and still get credit for being there, how to escape from the trunk of a car, and how to find out the name of someone you wake up next to after drinking too much. All directions were very specific. For example on the how to land a plane section, step 1 was remove the unconscious or dead pilot from the seat.

This is a nice book for my reference collection.
