This book is essentially the same book as the original "Worst Case" edition, but with 'edited' content. (no information on delivering babies, etcetera)

It is shorter & published by Scholastic Books. It also has a regular PB cover & not the sturdier cover of the original edition.

A younger 'student' would love the survivalist information included!!

A good book to get a non-reader reading... especially an outdoorsy type or rebel.

A very cute, very informative little book! This handy survival book covers everything from the very useful (How to stop a car with broken brakes, how to survive a mugging) to the downright obscure (how to stop a runaway camel, how to survive a UFO abduction). It has handy little pictures and diagrams for the tricky parts, simple-to-read step-by-step instructions, and even a list of helpful emergency phrases in 5 different languages! A must-have for anyone who travels a lot, or even just a little!

Having read "Worst Case Scenario" which I believe is the first book in the series, I would have to say that I enjoyed the "Travel" version much more than the first one. I found the information to be slightly more useful, however, again, some instances are insane situations that no average person would become involved in. I did like the practical information such as how to purify water and distill water. There was also information on how to stop a car if the brakes fail--most people already know things like that but the point is that this one had more useable and applicable information than the first one.
