The Worst Case Survival Handbooks are a series of guides that have sold over 10 million copies. Written by Joshua Piven and David Borgenicht they conceive all kinds of “Worst Cases” and give survival guidance to get out of them.
The classic book that started it all was The Worst Case Scenario Survival Handbook. It describes itself as an essential companion for a perilous age - Danger! It lurks at every corner. Volcanoes. Sharks. Quicksand. Terrorists. The pilot of the plane blacks out and it’s up to you to land the jet. What do you do? “The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook” is here to help: jam-packed with how-to, hands-on, step-by-step, illustrated instructions on everything you need to know FAST-from defusing a bomb to delivering a baby in the back of a cab.
