Overview

Sharks Are Flying at Your Head at 300 mph.
How Will You Survive?
 
In the apocalyptic world we live in, Mother Nature is angry. Danger waits at every turn, and catastrophes like the Los Angeles sharknados have taught us that we need to be ready for anything. Too many lives have already been lost.
 
But fear not. How to Survive a Sharknado and Other Unnatural Disasters is the first and only comprehensive guide to surviving the very worst that Mother Nature can throw our way. Inside this life-saving reference, you’ll find:

   • Vital information about dozens of unnatural disasters and ungodly monsters that can injure, maim, or kill you, from arachnoquakes and ice twisters to piranhacondas and mega pythons;
   • Easy-to-understand survival tips for avoiding a bloody demise;
   • Inspirational words of wisdom from survivors, including Fin Shepard and April Wexler;
   • Useful resources, such as the Shepard Survival Assessment Test (S.S.A.T), and much more.

With this essential book in hand, you too can be a hero who laughs in the face of calamity while saving friends and family. Or you can just avoid getting savagely ripped apart by a robocroc. Either way, you’ve been warned. Now be prepared.

Sharknado 2: The Second One premieres July 30 at 9/8c on Syfy!

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Thanks to the wonders of CGI, apocalypse is just as close as your nearest movie theatre, but that doesn't make it any easier to survive attacks of ravenous flying sharks, mega pythons and hideous large-toothed manticores. Now, thanks to the boundless curiosity of Andrew Shaffner (Literary Rogues; Fifty Writers on Fifty Shades), your worries about confronting these unnatural disasters have been answered. Forget zombie food fests; aerial piranha assaults are the next big thing.

From the Publisher
"[T]he perfect companion to have on hand while watching some of the most absurdly awesome movies the SyFy Channel has to offer... [and] a must own item for fans of B-Grade creature features! It also makes a fantastic companion piece to the now iconic ‘Zombie Survival Guide’. Highly recommend[ed]! --ScienceFiction.com

    This is just a fun little almost parody survival book on staying alive during some interesting attacks.
    Obviously it's for fun and not real advice people... although you never know I guess.

    I loved some of the elements they came up with, things like Whalestrom, Ghostshark or the Elektrokraken

    It would be a great coffee table book and I'm sure my friends will find fun and humor in it for many visits to come. Who knows I might even invest in some of those night vision goggles they're always recommending.

    So some crazy unnatural events are on the way?
    There is the possibility of a disaster everyday, but some disasters you may never imagine coming, so how do you prepare yourself for those? Not for the weak, How to Survive a Sharknado and other Unnatural Disasters will let you know that there are more horrors out there than you ever imagined!
        Filled with such helpful information such as:
        *Did you remove the sword from the stone, even after we warned you not to? - can you stop the rock monster?
        *Don't take pictures of the Elecktrokraken.- Survival is more important than page views or retweets.
        *Make Apocalyptic Drinks - recipes included.
        *Attempt to navigate out of the Whalestrom.


    Filled with so much information that you may never have thought you needed to know, this guide will help you prepare for the end of times. From bees, bears and gators be prepared my fellow readers. You never know what is coming.
