Luckily, the authors of the Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook series are back with all-new, expert advice designed to help readers fend off the furry, fanged, freaky, and frightful. This classic handbook format is packed with new illustrated instructions for crucial scenarios ranging from the domestic (How to Host a Cocktail Party When Your House is Haunted) to the scary (How to Survive a Zombie Attack in the First Day, First Week, and Long Term) to the practical (How to Break Up with a Vampire).”

Over on Amazon you can peek inside the book and check out the table of contents, which happens to be packed full of chapters on everything you can think of. While I know this book is meant to be funny and amusing I’m sure the history buff in me will cringe once I read the chapters on werewolf and vampire history, I just can’t help it. But in spite of that I’m looking forward to this one, it’s bound to be highly entertaining. What about you guys, will you pick up a copy of the book?
