The Lovereading4Kids comment

This fascinating ultimate survival handbook will teach you how to survive the world's most dangerous situations ranging from plane crashes and avalanches to jelly fish stings and snake bites. It even gives a top tip on how best to survive each of the 100 most dangerous things. The reality is that most of these things will never happen to you but if you'd read this book and knew what to do if it did happen then chances are you'd live to tell the tale!!

Shortlisted for the 2009 Blue Peter Award for ‘the best book with facts’.
