The Department of Homeland Security advises all citizens to develop an Emergency Preparedness Plan, along with a Disaster Supply Kit . . . but who has the time? Don't panic--it's Joey Green to the rescue! Last-Minute Survival Secrets contains more than a hundred ingenious survival tips that may sound quirky at first but really do work. You will discover how to escape perilous situations using common household products:

* Start a campfire with potato chips

* Create a Wi-Fi antenna from a coffee can

* Repair a broken fan belt with a pair of panty hose

* Prevent heatstroke with a disposable diaper

* Remove cactus spines with Elmer's glue

* Open a locked suitcase with a ballpoint pen

* And much, much more!

The book also includes interesting and goofy sidebars related to these survival tactics and fascinating trivia to keep you entertained until FEMA arrives--which may be a while. It's the perfect resource for armchair survivalists, budding MacGyvers, and adventurists on a budget.
