"A 20th-century bestseller gets a makeover for the new millennium. . . .With tips ranging from how to hot-wire a car to how to deliver a baby in a taxicab, the authors' sense of humor was a hallmark of the first edition, and it's still front and center. Covering an array of topics travelers will find handy-in-flight emergencies like extreme turbulence, flagrant seat-recliners , and tantrum-throwing kids, plus man-made emergencies like car crashes, train derailments, hijackings, and hostage situations, natural disasters like wildfires and tsunamis, and tech problems like navigating without GPS and what to do if your phone catches fire- the updated sections provide a comprehensive guide to dealing with our most pressing dilemmas."
"Humorously breaks down all manner of sticky situations (however unlikely), based on advice from U.S. State Department officials, movie stunt people, and railroad engineers, among other experts."
