Today's Book Recommendation is:
The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook: Holidays by Joshua Piven and David Borgenicht graces our sidetable every Christmas - always ready to grab in case of an emergency (like a living room full of quiet guests who are in need of an ice breaker!). As you can see by the cover, it tells you how to "Fend Off a Charging Reindeer...Evade a Stampede of Shoppers...Survive a Runaway Sled...Repurpose a Fruitcake..." and so much more. Afterall, you never know when you'll find yourself in a situation where you need to fend off a reindeer OR evade those crazy stampedes that happen to mall shoppers. ;-)
From The Back Cover:
Turkey on fire? Obnoxious relatives headed your way? No one to kiss on New Year's Eve? Here are illustrated, step-by-step instructions to help you survive the joys of the holiday season, from Thanksgiving to New Year's Day:
How to Escape a Runaway Parade BalloonHow to Silence a Group of Carolers
How to Rescue Someone Stuck in a Chimney
How to Deal with a Canceled Flight
How to Win a Snowball Fight
How to Make Menorah Candles from Crayons
How to Treat a Tongue Stuck to a Pole
How to Thwart Gift Snoopers
How to Overcome Holiday Depression
How to Explain That There Is No Santa
...and dozens of other festivities gone awry.
CAUTION: Book may not be used as turkey stuffing
I ask you, with a back cover like that, how can you go wrong? They cover pretty much anything and everything and keep you laughing while they do it. We have a couple other of the Worst-Case Scenario books, but this one makes us laugh the most. We also have the Worst-Case Scenario board game, which can keep people laughing for a while.
CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEA: Are you looking for a gift idea for someone with a warped sense of humor (hmmm...guess that would be slam against myself!) or who likes unusual, funny gifts? Why not pick up a copy of The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook: Holidays (or, since it's harder to find these days, one of the other Worst-Case Scenario books) and the board game for the comic in your life. It might be a real hit!
Well, that's it for today's Wednesday Book Recommendation...see you for next week's holiday book recommendation!
