This book won't keep you amused for too many hours, but it's a pretty good read while it lasts. It is a light-hearted guide to various dangerous situations that might one day come in useful is you're unlucky enough to be faced by one of these problems. It shouldn't be interpreted as a serious factual book, but its advice is based on information supplied by experts, and is factually correct (as far as anything is). The situations covered include natural disasters, dangerous animal attacks, accide ...more

I am a HUGE fan of Bear Grylls' "Worst-Case Scenario" show. In fact, when I first found it, I watched all the episodes if the first two seasons in a week. The show is based off the Worst-Case Scenario books. This book features survival questions and scenarios that you must decide how you will react, and what your decision would be. There are multiple types of questions. Some are multiple choice, while others are just to test your ability to think outside the box, and whether or not you can survi ...more

This book helps you know if you can survive a variety of disasters.

Some scenarios have no best option, so the reader is given two choices and told the pros and cons of each. The book ends with the "Worst-Case Scenario Survival Aptitude Test." I gave this test to friends and found that a lot of the questions are not in the pages of the book, makin

this is a surprisingly good book to read right before bed. it gets me to stop thinking about me and my ordinary life and instead put myself in terrible, life-threatening scenarios and decide what i should do to save myself. seriously, it helps put things in perspective and helps me get a good night of sleep.

On multiple occasions the information they give out as "survival" information is just plain wrong. Several other times their information was contradictory to itself. This book is more likely to get you killed than to save you.

I was funny as hell. Great to read to guests when over, like a game - but without all the setup.
