HOW TO SURVIVE IN THE CITY

For most people, the art of survival is all about how to cope when deprived of the comforts of home – finding food and building shelter in the wilderness, for instance – but there is quite a different set of survival skills required for city living. With danger seeming to lurk around every street corner, coping with the potential threats of a busy and unfamiliar city can pose a real challenge to the uninitiated.
How to Survive in the City is an informative guide to overcoming the challenges of urban living, offering the reader a variety of tips and advice on how to be streetwise and overcome everyday problems – including how to prevent muggings and avoid confrontations, how to unlock your house and car without keys, how to escape a burning building, how to negotiate public transport, road safety measures, and being alert to terrorist activities.
Complete with more than 120 black-and-white illustrations that complement the text, this book is the perfect companion to surviving city life, whether you are a seasoned urban dweller or merely a day visitor.
