Beat the Odds

Improve Your Chances of Surviving

About The Book

In this action-oriented book, a survival expert walks you through what to do in dozens of scary situations, from riding out a tsunami to surviving the fall of civilization.

Fast-paced and remarkably practical, this latest book from best-selling survival expert Tim MacWelch breaks down the odds of your facing dozens of scary situations, from the fairly likely (getting lost in the woods or mugged on the mean streets, for example) to the unlikely but terrifying (being hit by an asteroid, attacked by zombies, or other sci-fi-worthy scenarios)—and provides concrete, doable strategies for how to improve your odds of survival.

Each danger is rated with handy graphics that give an-at-a-glance idea as to how likely it is to befall you, how much you should worry about it happening, and how possible it is to increase your odds of survival. And then, in the pages that follow, he gives practical, step-by-step instructions, tutorials, and hints to help you beat the odds and live to tell the tale.
