Survival Handbook: Dating & Sex provides a comprehensive handbook for fielding the slings and arrows of romance, and packs in hundreds of scenarios from across the series plus dozens of new entries on romantic trysts gone bad.
Survival Handbook is a multi-million copy international bestseller, the first in the series of highly successful books by Joshua Piven and David Borgenicht about surviving life's sudden turns for the worse.
Borgenicht says the basic approach of the authors is to put themselves in the subject zone and start brainstorming all the things that could go wrong. We went to a master of disguise, a former CIA agent, Tony Mendez (who was portrayed by Ben Affleck in the 2012 film 'Argo.') So we interviewed him for tips on how to disguise yourself in the bathroom. Perhaps less universal but certainly entertaining: How to have sex in a small place (including tips for a successful fling in an airplane lavatory). Do not let yourself get stuck in a corner or on a couch with your ex. This keeps the dialogue fresh and superficial and in your control, and helps you to avoid complimenting or talking about the ex. Breezing by someone indicates you are not fazed or upset.
Then they find experts to work things out."We have a scenario on how to escape from a bad date. The best thing to do, if you're wearing sunglasses, take them off. Although the books in the series are sold in the humor section of stores, Borgenicht says they have changed people's lives or the lives of loved ones."One woman was hiking with her daughter in California and remembered our advice on how to fend off a mountain lion," he says. Introduce your date and send clear signals that this is who you are with now.
Following the success of The Complete Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook, this ruggedly handsome hardcover collection brings together new and classic advice from Worst-Case experts to help readers master the manly artsfrom wrestling an alligator to calming a crying child to extinguishing backyard barbeque fires.
This is an excellent book to give to practically any male!
(Though in the off-chance that you are, first locate the cricoid cartilage in the victim's neck, make an incision with a sharp razor, and then use your finger to open the slit and insert a straw in the slit for the person to breathe.) Unlike the tracheotomy tutorial, some of the pieces here are surprisingly practical for everyday life, as in the guide to treating frostbite.
Worst-Case Scenario authors Joshua Piven and David Borgenicht hint at one answer.
“You just never know.” Part tongue-in-cheek guide and part practical advice, Worst-Case divides its How-To categories into five sections: Simple, wood-cut illustrations and an austere red and black type give this little book an authentic handbook feel.
Experts provide instructions on what you need to know fast, like how to fend off a pickup artist, how to have sex in a small space, how to deal with a cheating lover, how to remove difficult clothing, how to survive an obsessive ex, how to survive if you wake up next to someone whose name you don’t remember.
Plus a handy appendix of body language, pickup lines and useful excuses.
