BeschreibungThis entertaining book enlightens the reader to the hidden (and sometimes not-so-hidden) dangers of our world, from what's lurking at your next picnic or on a kitchen sponge to bad bullfrogs and the dangers of burning backyard barrels. The authors do more than just list the possible dangers we all face in and outside our home. They also help the reader judge the severity of these lurking threats and offer suggested remedies and solutions. A concluding chapter is devoted to resources on the Web that will bring you up to date on what is known about each hazard. If you're feeling paranoid, "A Paranoid's Ultimate Survival Guide" will show you why you have good reason to feel the way you do, and teach you how to cope with the very real threats around us. As your mother warned you, even paranoids have enemies.
