Product description

"In the course of my work I have built an airstrip in Burundi, helped deliver a baby to a Rwandan refugee on a Congolese roadside, navigated to safety when lost in the deserts of Chad, taken cover from ricocheting bullets in Baghdad and negotiated with rebel warlords in Darfur. I hope you don't have to do the same. But if things get dangerous, this guide will help you--and those with you--to survive." International aid worker James Shepherd-Barron has faced countless life-threatening situations around the world. "Everything that Follows "draws upon his decades of experience to offer usable advice--as practical as it is pulse-pumping--on surviving the most dangerous places on earth. Facing down a rabid dog? Under threat of chemical attack? Needing urgently to know how to fire an AK-47? This book--crammed with easy-to-use illustrations, packing lists, useful phrases, and real-life anecdotes--provides expert advice on how to make it through. Whether you're about to go on a trip overseas, or just want to know what to do when the going gets tough, this guide will help you survive.
