Description

With the economic downturn, the hysterical Swine Flu frenzy and the systemic corruption of our political system we need someone to guide us through these difficult times. Emergency tells how Strauss went from shivering the whole night through in a water-logged sleeping bag on a tracking course, with only his broken Blackberry for company, to being the well-trained and even better equipped survival expert he is today. Encountering a host of weird and hilarious characters along the way, Strauss's timely and wry look at the The End of the World As We Know It will make you glad you chose to be on his side.

Review quote

Fast-paced, often hysterically funny, Emergency is the ultimate self-help manual for those determined to be the last man standing. * Mail on Sunday * The world is in crisis. If you're looking for an escape plan, this book is it. * Rolling Stone * Like a George Plimpton for the 21st Century, Neil Strauss has mastered the art of the professional amateur. In Emergency, he manages to find the humor in an otherwise frightening time, with wit, wisdom and often hilarious repercussions. * Maxim * If you've ever wanted to beat the system, get off the grid, or become an escape artist, this is your manual. -- Tim Ferriss, author of the #1 NEW YORK TIMES bestseller, THE 4-HOUR WORKWEEK
