The Worst-Case Scenario Handbook by David Borgenicht & Justin Heimberg

Most people wouldn't know what to do if a rhino were charging at them. The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook teaches you lots of ways to survive in different cases. This book discusses how to survive at sea, in the mountains, and in the desert. It also includes how to survive in the jungle, in the arctic, and on a safari. If you complete this survival handbook, you'll know how to fend off a shark, avoid a bear attack, or stop a runaway camel. Readers may also learn how to remove a leech, build a snow cave, and even how to track animals.

Being informed about how to stay alive is a good benefit to everyone. That is why this book was a great read. I highly doubt that I will ever need to know any of these survival techniques, but if I do, then I will be very happy I read them. Since this is a junior edition, the writing was geared towards 9-12 year olds. Some of the jokes that were made were kind of childish. Overall, the vocabulary and images were easy to understand and made it easy to follow along. I recommend this book to younger readers who want to go traveling or have a spare hour to read.
