Quotes & Awards

  • “Helpful hits on how to survive an interview are balanced with equally helpful, but funnier, tips…From dealing with a ‘nightmare’ boss or coworker to escaping from a lion cage, and from removing a tie caught in a document feeder to treating a finger cut on a deli slicer (step one: ‘Turn off the slicer’), the authors know the secrets.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “It’s highly amusing to hear how one can avoid a lion attack on the job or thwart a lunch thief (think hidden jalapeños)…good fun.”


  • “Recommendations range from the purely practical (restoring coffee-stained or shredded documents) to the morally suspect (how to convince the boss one isn’t accessing inappropriate web sites on company time) to the definitely worrying (how to get a job as a brain surgeon when one doesn’t have the qualifications)…Information for handling people (problem bosses, coworkers, customers) is generally good and does offer insights into situations that can baffle employees.”

    " Ça ne se lit pas comme un roman. Ce sont des chroniques pour se sortir des pires situations.

    En suppléance, ce livre sauve des vies. Des élèves de 6e année savent maintenant comment vaincre un alligator. Tout ça leur a été lu en anglais et en français: à leur demande!! :) Formidable. "

    " 1999
    This is a small and concise book. Very interesting.
    There is a 2010 edition that sounds even better:
    Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook:Man Skills. "

    " i swear, this thing makes you so paranoid, like something - worst-case scenario or not - is going to happen. TO YOU.
    on the bright side, very helpful. now, whenever you find yourself battling an alligator or jumping off of a bridge 50 feet in the air, you know what to do! "

    " An excellent coverage of things to do when you need to survive. Best read aloud in a group of friends(take turns picking sections). "
