Book Contest: “Worst-Case Scenario”

July 25th, 2009 · 1 Comment

The “Worst-Case Scenario” series is celebrating its 10th anniversary, and the publisher, Chronicle Books, has given me three copies to give away. So, here’s the contest: email me ( a ‘worst-case scenario’ you have been in and how you dealt with it. The first three next two* people who do so will receive a “Worst Case Scenario” series book.)

*First Submission/Winner — Lesley Fan, New York, NY — “The worst-case scenario that I’ve been in happened when I was in another country with my then-boyfriend (now-husband). He got seriously ill with food poisoning and needed to see a doctor immediately, but neither of us spoke the language at all–and our baggage, with our phrase books, had been delayed. My hand gestures (and more than a little persistence) saved the day; it’s amazing how creative you can get in a pinch!

Clearly I’ve lead a pretty charmed life, free of rampaging bears and the like, but I really did feel more panicked than I’ve ever felt in that situation, and everything came out already, thankfully.”

Two more books left.

The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook: Extreme Edition

    The worst case scenario for you (and me ) would most likely be a power outage, NO Web service ARGGGH!
    Seriously thought, the worst case scenario for me would be separation from my family and loven ones, now that would be bad. Think about it.
