The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Blog Entry #3
Ever since our first book, The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook came out in 1999 and became a runaway hit, we’ve been asked to provide survival tips for life’s sudden turns for the worse. Whenever there’s a story in the news about some disaster, or some amazing tale of survival, we get a call or an e-mail from readers and the press asking what they should do if they find themselves in a similar (or at least similarly outrageous situation). Most recently, I appeared on the TODAY SHOW to comment on a story about a window-washer in NY who survived a 41-story fall (the answer: Don’t panic, and ride the cart down to reduce the impact.). View the TODAY SHOW segment here.
But now it’s your chance to play the expert. Send us your best Worst-Case Scenario survival tip and you’ll get a chance to win a free copy of THE WORST-CASE SCENARIO GAME OF SURVIVING LIFE from UNIVERSITY GAMES. Send in a 100 word story, a video, a photograph, a drawing, whatever you want that explains your best survival tip for kids, and if we think it’s good we’ll post it here on the Chronicle Books Blog. Prizes will be awarded on December 31, and I will be the Simon Cowell of the contest (aka, the judge).
The survival tip must be appropriate for kids ages 9-12 and should fit into at least one of these categories:
• Survival Skills at Home
• Survival Skills at School
• Survival Skills for Your Social Life
• Survival Skills for the Great Outdoors
