about

From the world leader in fascinating facts and amusing true stories comes a book about how to feed, clothe, and protect yourself in the wilderness…and might even make you want to avoid anything resembling the wilderness forever.

For more than 25 years, Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader has helped you learn amazing things you didn’t know. Now, Uncle John will show you how to do things you didn’t know how to do…and probably should never, never, never actually do, unless you’re in a survival situation and really, really, really need to do.

 

It’s Do-It-Yourself Guide to the Bizarrely Impossible: Survival Edition. A new approach to survival guides and how-to books, this book provides step-by-step instructions for how to make do in any rugged terrain. But if you’re expecting “how to start a fire,” think again. This isn’t the kind of book that will tell you how to make a fire by rubbing two sticks together--it will tell you how to make a fire using a car battery.

 

It will also tell you:

• How to swing from a vine like Tarzan
• How to land an airplane in an emergency
• How to fight a bear…and win
• How to perform emergency surgery in the woods
• How to identify what insects you can--and cannot--eat
• And lots, lots more.
The Bathroom Readers' Institute is a tight-knit group of loyal and skilled writers, researchers, and editors who have been working as a team for years. The BRI understands the habits of a very special market-Throne Sitters-and devotes itself to providing amazing facts and conversation pieces.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from You'll "bearly" be able to put it down! Published by The Bathroom Readers' Institute, this book has all kinds of tips on disposing of your poo in emergency situations, getting lost, and dealing with many other types of emergencies. This would be a good tool to bring with you when camping. Finding survival food in nature and making your own canoe are two terrific skills you may pick up while reading this book. Some of the situations dealt with are potentially deadly- like fighting a bear, dealing with a hostage situation, heavy bleeding, and more. If all that fails to help you cope, the closing chapter, How to Fake Your Own Death might interest you.
