Quotes & Awards

  • “This is a no-nonsense, no-fooling-around guide with straightforward information. But fear not. The authors have enough perspective to acknowledge the campy appeal of an armchair guide for the anxious.”

    USA Today

  • “The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook: Travel will have you ready for just about anything.”

    Book Magazine

  • “Penn Jillette's experience as a theater performer (Penn & Teller, magicians) stands him in good stead as he gives an energetic and emphatic reading of a list of possible travel disasters with accompanying do's and don'ts. Though some (abduction by an alien) are intended to be comical, others (hostage situation, hotel fire) are all too possible. A wealth of information is related in a husky voice that commands attention. ”

    " Haha, most of the scenarios in here truly are 'worst-case', while others are a bit more practical. It was fun to read through this book, though I'm not sure how much I'd remember if I ever WERE in one of these dire situations (such as, caught in a riptide, needing to treat a severed limb, how to climb out of a well, how to ram a barricade, foiling a UFO udbuction, surviving a hostage situation, and escaping from a car that is hanging over a cliff). My favorite part might be the few pages in the back titles 'Foreign Emergancy Phrases': a list of phrases translated into four languages, such as 'Stop, thief!', 'Hello, I have been seriously wounded', 'May I borrow a towel to wipe of the blood?', 'May I use your belt as a tourniquet', and 'You will never make me talk.' "

    " One of those diverting reads to pass five minutes.... i.e. when you're in the smallest room in the house. Ahem. "

    " Interesting in a couple places, but not altogether worth my time or yours. Why not rename it, "Common Sense: Don't Travel to Places Where You're Going to Have Both UFO Encounters and Get Robbed by Romnichels." Oh, and don't drive off a cliff. Duh? Wasteful reading...very pulpy. "
