Read in January, 2002

Is it humor, or real life? Is it a joke, or a real manual for survival? The answer to both is yes. The authors sought out the most respected experts for survival advice in each scenario and present it in a no nonsense manner. The instructions are concise and accompanied by detailed but clear illustrations of the required physical action to survive each situation. So why do I cross-reference it in the subject of humor? Because it's ridiculous to think that an average person would need such advice. Or is it? On reflection, I have been in, and evidently survived at least three of these situations, so maybe it's not so ridiculous. In any case, this book is a fascinating read, a very novel idea, and as the authors say, "you just never know."
