The Complete Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook: Man Skills Reviews
It was OK. I was expecting for it to be a little more entertaining and a little less instructional. Totally my fault and the book is what it claims to be.
Old Birthday present I quickly devoured, fun times.
I bought this book as a Christmas present for my husband. Browsing through it in the store, I thought it'd make a fun, quirky present--and it was. On Christmas day, it was passed around, as people wanted to read a few sections (e.g. pickup lines to avoid, how to drive a tank). This book contains lots of useful information (e.g. how to fend off a vicious dog) as well as some more unusual (see tank example). It combines humour and facts, and categories range from Love & Sex and Domestic Disasters to Work and Sports & Hobbies. It's not the type of book you read from cover to cover; rather, you read a few sections once in a while.
The book does exactly what it says on the tin: step-by-step instructions and advice on how to do 'manly' things, from tying a tie to driving a car up a flight of stairs.The author's keep their tongues firmly in their cheeks, genuinely describing how to discreetly pass gas in public. They also have fun by juxtaposing sections like how to apologize to your wife with how to properly sleep on a couch. While I probably won't use even 75% of the advice in real life, it's a surprisingly informative and humorous read.
Readability: 7. Rating: 4. Not very good. A mix of events I don't care about, those that are trivial or are trivialized by the authors, and oversimplifications. An interesting concept that did not deliver. Perhaps it was just meant to be a mockery of old-fashioned handbooks - with poor illustrations, etc., but if so, it was an unfunny joke.
After I bought this book as a joke I soon realized several of the tips apply to my job as a camp couselor. I now carry it around with me and thumb through it whenever I get the chance. As silly as some of the tips and scenarios may be, it's a nice book to have-you never know what's going to happen.
Taught me how to un-clasp a bra with one hand. 10/10
This book actually helped me with several of its facts. Recommended for the outdoorsy types.
