About the Author

Joshua Piven is the co-author of all the books in The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook series. He lives in Philadelphia, where he's been working to bring his handicap down to double digits. He plans to win all four majors in a single year.

David Borgenicht, co-author of The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook series, lives in Philadelphia with his wife and has been known to act as her caddy-or at least he carries her bags and follows her around a lot.

James Grace, a life-long golf lover, held a golf club shortly after birth and was an early master of miniature golf. To this day he can perfectly time the windmill. He lives in Boston.
