5.0 out of 5 stars Great little gift book, 14 April 2010
This review is from: Deadly Peril: And How to Avoid it (Paperback)
Deadly Peril (and how to avoid it) is an informative and often amusing book containing many of the common, uncommon and downright obscure ways to die horribly.

This blackly humourous book contains such diverse topics as Earthquakes, Black Widow spiders, Great White Sharks, Falling Coconuts and the seemly innocous but deadly peril of Getting Dressed. Detailing each peril across 2 pages, covering what can happen and usefully how to avoid it. Almost all perils are extremely rare eg. being struck by Lightning, but every topic is dealt in an entertaining way.

As you will discover when reading Deadly Peril, there are many exotic ways to die and if they involve animals almost all of them can run faster than humans. And even if you can run fast, there is no guarantee you will not get struck on the head by a falling coconut or spontaneously combust.

To Sum Up: An excellent little gift book for all ages that you will probably end up reading yourself.

This review is from: Deadly Peril: And How to Avoid it (Paperback)
This book is so entertaining. I bought it as a xmas present for a 12 year old boy (in desperation!) and could not put it down long enough to wrap it! I have ordered one for myself too now. It is amusing, informative and more than a little bizarre but completely unique and very enjoyable.
