Last-Minute Survival Secrets contains more than a hundred ingenious survival tips that may sound quirky at first, but really do work. Readers will discover a wide range of handy and unusual secrets to outsmart the unexpected and escape perilous situations using common, household products. Green shows how to start a campfire with potato chips, open a locked suitcase with a ballpoint pen, and prevent heatstroke with a disposable diaper. Readers will learn to build a solar cooker using cardboard and aluminum foil, a flood alarm with aspirin and a clothespin, and a Wi-Fi antenna with a coffee can. The book is even helpful for life's everyday disasters such as when a thunderstorm knocks out the power, the dog is sprayed by a skunk, or your car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. The book also includes interesting and goofy sidebars related to these survival tactics and fascinating trivia to keep you entertained until FEMA arrives. It is the perfect resource for armchair survivalists, budding MacGyver's, and adventurists on a budget.
