We live in a very dangerous world. If it’s not Sharknados in Santa Monica and New York it’s Boaricanes in Brazil, Ice Twisters in Oregon, or Mega Pythons in Florida. There are tons of survival guides out there but they cannot even begin to prepare you for how to survive in this scary new world. Luckily, that’s where Andrew Shaffer and his How to Survive a Sharknado and Other Unnatural Disasters comes in.

If you’re a fan of SyFy original movies then you’ll recognize a number of the threats featured in the book. For example, besides the Sharnknado, creatures like the Pteracuda and Sharktopus are also featured. We laugh and take joy in the crazy circumstances in which these phenomena are found in films… but would we laugh so heartily if we were the potential source of comically graphic, geysering blood from our soon to be stump llimbs?

I think not!

If you read this book and trust in your instincts, however, you’ll never have to find out either way. You’ll learn that the best way to avoid a Whalestrom is to just never go out on a boat into the ocean. Like, ever. You’ll find out what electronics to avoid during a polar storm to keep you and your loved ones alive. And you’ll find out that the best way to defeat a Mongolian Death Worm is to just take a shotgun to it!

Well written, professionally illustrated, and beautifully designed, How to Survive a Sharknado is an incredibly fun, lighthearted book that’s perfect for SyFy fans and those with a good since of humor. It builds up on movies you might be familiar with but also introduces a number of brand new threats you didn’t even know you should be afraid of before it came out! Included are insights from Sharknado survivors Fin Shepherd and April Wexler – both of whom know what they are talking about.

Paranoid survivalists and budding cryptozoologists especially will want to pick up a copy immediately! Not only will it help keep you and those close to you alive in the event that you are faced with any of these unnatural disasters and crazy, dangerous creatures but it will also give you new insight into these fascinating, potentially evil beasts.

Final Thoughts:
Fans of Sharknado should definitely pick this one up. And if you’ve got a friend whose obsessed with the series getting this book and perhaps the Sharknado Funko POP! Vinyl figure would probably be like the best gift ever. High recommended for those you know would get a kick out of it.
