About Worst Case Scenario

Danger! It lurks at every corner. 

Quicksand. Sharks. Cyberbullies. Super-Flu.

From wrestling an alligator to evading drones to landing a plane if the pilot passes out, The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook is here to help with expert, illustrated, step-by-step instructions for life’s sudden turns for the worst. Needed now more than ever, this revised and expanded edition—published on the international bestseller’s 20th anniversary—delivers frightening and funny real advice readers need to know fast.

With crucial information added from across the Worst-Case series and 20 all-new scenarios for twenty-first-century threats (extreme weather, “fake news,” dropping a cell phone in the toilet), this action-packed hardcover handbook brings emergency instruction for anxious times.

This week’s Art of Conversation is brought to you Baby Shusher. 

Baby Shusher a revolutionary new tool for parents to help soothe your fussy baby. Baby Shusher uses a natural, rhythmic shushing sound to break the crying cycle and engage baby’s calming reflex to lull them to sleep. Its 15  to 30-minute adjustable timer and long-lasting battery provides long shushing sessions that will get even the most resistant babies to sleep. Its removable strap allows you to use while holding baby or tether it to a stroller or car seat, making it ideal for travel.  Forgot your Baby Shusher? Baby Shusher has an App for that! It has comparable features and a built- in sound equalizer that allows the app to listen to your baby every 3 minutes and adjust the shush volume accordingly. For more info visit
