Stock Image - Actual Cover May Vary

The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook broke out of the pack of last years books, igniting white-hot media interest (The New Yorker, National Post, Oprah) that ran all summer long. There are a million copies in print with no sign of slowing demand. How do the authors follow this up? With a book written specifically for travellers.Joshua Piven and David Borgenicht have devised 40 new scenarios of potential disaster. Readers will learn how to use their people skills to bribe an official or to foil a UFO abduction. There is useful instruction for walking on a broken leg, building an igloo and escaping a blaze in a high-rise hotel. Written with down-to-earth guy-humour, the Travel Handbook feeds the atavistic soul. You may never be stalked by a lion or caught at sea in a perfect storm, but a calm mind and resourcefulness will always serve you well.This book includes practical new features such as diagrams for international sign language, emergency phrases, packing advice, air-travel tips and sure-fire ways to beat jet lag.
