Description


A practical, all-encompassing guide to disaster preparedness, from avalanches and blackouts to pandemics and wildfires.

An emergency room physician and U.S. Air Force veteran, Dr. Torres, aka “Dr. Disaster,” has spent his career on the front lines, saving lives in all sorts of disasters. He’s seen it all, from late nights treating patients in the ER to early mornings covering the country’s latest crisis on NBC/MSNBC as senior medical correspondent. His entire job is to think about the best practices in an emergency—and now he’s sharing this hard-won knowledge with you.

In Dr. Disaster’s Guide to Surviving Everything, Dr. Torres shares the essential advice you need to survive any worst-case scenario, from natural disasters like lightning strikes, hurricanes, and wildlife encounters, to human-made ones like terrorist attacks and active-shooter situations. As fun to read as it is informative, this book is full of hacks that could save your life, such as:

  • How to prep your home for any emergency
  • Why you should never use a landline during a thunderstorm
  • The safest place to sit on an airplane
  • How to start a fire with common household items
  • The first thing you should do every time you enter a shopping mall

With this book in your pocket, you will be ready for whatever the future holds.

How to Use Your Gift Cards Online

Hello! If you have a Flying Pig gift card (the cute plastic one with the pig and clouds), here's how to use it online:

Select the books you'd like to order. During the checkout process, you'll see a menu of options. Click on the little black arrow next to Store Gift Card pane:

Once you've expanded that menu item, you'll see a box to check Yes:

Once you click the checkbox Yes, you'll be asked to enter your gift card number. That's the number under the barcode on the back of your gift card. It might be a short or long number:

Enter it into the box below the words Enter Your Gift Card Number:

That's it! You will have to add a credit card as a backup in case your gift card doesn't cover the full amount of your purchase. **Because the website doesn't 'know' what amount is on your store gift card — the website and store system are separate entities — you will not see your gift card applied until your order leaves its Pending status and is Processing or Completed.**

If you received an Online Gift Code (NOT a physical card, but a string of numbers and letters emailed to you), please refer to your emailed gift to redeem those! They are applied instantly when you visit the website via the gift code email.
