From natural disasters to dangerous weather, from the dangers of getting lost in the wild to fighting off dangerous animals, any child can imagine the special skills they'll need to combat 100 real-life dramas.

Each danger is rated by how likely you are to encounter it, as well as how likely you are to survive; from the unlikely event of being struck by a meteor (with minimal chance of surviving), or being attacked by a bear, to the more likely event of successfully surviving a flood or forest fire.

Learn how to survive:

* volcanic eruptions

* avalanches

* tsunamis

* landslides

* hurricanes

* tornadoes

* blizzards

* lightning

* sandstorms

* lost in the desert

* swept away in a river

Since I'm a bit of a worrywart anyway, I thought it would be best to be prepared in those kinds of situations that I worry will happen. So now I know how to survive various kinds of weather, animal attacks, and situations that are human-caused, such as a bridge collapsing. Read full review
