Another funny book from UFC fighter Forrest Griffin (again co-written with Erich Krauss), this time focusing on guiding the reader though surviving the end of the world. Like his previous book, "Got Fight?" it starts with a quiz on whether or not you are manly enough to even read it. Then he tells you how to prepare, such as what to put in your Go Bag, how to make a Vehicle of Death. Next comes his outline of various doomsday scenarios, including economic meltdown, asteroid, nuclear war, incurable viral pandemic, super-volcano, and less-likely situations like the Book of Revelations from the Bible and Norse mythology's Ragnarok (which includes "How to Kill a Supernatural Wolf." Then there are tips on surviving the initial shit-storm, like how to hotwire a car, siphon gas, catching a fish with your hands, milking a cow, people you should avoid (hippies, children), and a section on first aid. Later on the book loses steam when he writes about how to start your own post-apocalypse cult, but all in all it's a very informative and humorous book.
