The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook

1999, possibly first edition, from Chronicle Books
Joshua Piven and David Borgenicht
The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook
Original/purchase price unknown
Slightly worn paperback

I think I got this as a "humorous" gift, and probably haven't read it more than once before.  This time, it made me not want to leave the house, or at least never go to Florida again.  The authors consulted experts and provide advice on how to, as the cover says, "Escape from Quicksand, Wrestle an Alligator, Break Down a Door, Land a Plane...."  I was hoping the book would be funnier, since most of the information is stuff I will probably never have occasion to use.  It was somewhat interesting though.
