Description
Dust off your native survival instincts and update them for the modern world -- whether it's negotiating the car park at Ikea, anti-interrogation techniques at customer service desks, or navigating by electricity pylon.A smart, spoof survival guide -- to the 9-5. Ray Mears' and Bruce Parry's advice is all very well if you're stuck up the Amazon without a paddle, but what about finding your way to a seat on a crowded bus, predicting the weather with a coffee in Starbucks or getting rid of cold callers with a microwave?Harnessing the laws of science, nature and human behaviour, this book revisits and reinvents the tricks that got us through our savage past and updates them for the 21st century. It arms you with a caveman's toolkit for survival wherever you may be -- Starbucks, the office, or a crowded tube on a Friday night -- and tells you all you need to know to transform your daily grind into a non-stop adventure (you don't even have to wear khaki).
