"The indispensable, indestructible guide for surviving life's sudden turns for the worse." This is the claim that the book makes on the back cover. I'd like to argue the indestructible point, for it seems pretty flimsy to me, but otherwise this is fairly neat. It's filled with all kinds of information that you probably will never need in life but it's good to know anyway, for example, how to land a plane (pg 114) and how to survive if you are in the line of gunfire (pg 143). Don't leave home without it.
