  • This book is a riot. I gave it to my brother for Christmas, I read it while he was passing out the presents. By the time he was finished being Santa's little helper, I had learned how to jump out of a speeding car and survive a snake bite.

  • They were a hit as christmas presents!

    Everybody got a kick out of this book! I ordered 2 and loved them. Then I ordered some more. I had purchased just enough books for MY family and friends and myself, when my husband appropriated some of them for HIS friends and family. Then I ordered some more. The articles are fun to read, and who knows, may come in handy if I am ever stalked by an alligator, trapped in an avalanche or find myself in my car under water!
