Not useless trivia,
This review is from: The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook (Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbooks) (Paperback)
This fascinating little book is a collection of How-To tips that could mean the difference between survival and a rather unpleasant demise. The authors rounded up the suggestions of a group of experts in their respective fields, and organized them by subject. Everything is covered here from How to Escape from a Sinking Car, through How to Escape from a Bear, How to Deliver a Baby in a Taxicab, to How to Survive When Lost in the Mountains.
On the surface this book might seem like a book of useless trivia, but such is not the case. In fact, only this past summer, in the city of Joliet, a Chicago couple took a wrong corner and took a dead-end street into a river. If only they had seen the section on escaping from a sinking car.
In all seriousness, this book does contain useful information that everyone should probably read at least once in his or her lifetime.
