Ever since the attacks on the World Trade Center on 11th September 2001, we have been forced to take our safety less for granted. The Survival Guide: What To Do In a Biological,Chemical Or Nuclear Emergency confronts a number of terrorist threats head-on. This book is a comprehensive guide to what to expect and how to react in over 30 scenarios, including anthrax, bubonic plague and smallpox (biological), cyanide and sarin (chemical) and dirty bombs and attacks on power stations (nuclear). It describes medical symptoms and treatments, and gives solid practical information about how to respond to specific emergencies, plus advice on such issues as disaster planning and mass-transportation strategies in the event of an attack. Of course it is hoped that no-one will ever have cause to take the information in this book beyond the theoretical and into practice - but to be ready to do so is both reassuring and empowering. And in a worst-case scenario, this information could save lives.
