Better Safe Than Sorry
The littlest things in your everyday life can have injurious or even deadly results. Tomorrow, you could be in line at the bank when a robbery occurs. You could catch hepatitis from your toothbrush. You could be killed at a baseball game. Do you know how to live more safely? Haven’t you wondered about the safest:
• Seat on a Plane?
• Lane on a Highway?
• Way to Defrost Meat?
• Stall in a Restroom?
Be Safe! teaches you the safest strategies for everyday life, whether at home, at work, on the town, or abroad. Live a longer, happier life with Be Safe! in your back pocket.
Melissa Heckscher provides simple strategies for death-free living--the safest seat on an airplane, the safest city in the U. S., the safest piece of gym equipment, and more.
We all know that life is full of hidden dangers -- but what are you doing to avoid them? Do you know the safest lane on a highway? The best way to defrost meat? The cleanest stall in a public restroom?
Be Safe is your road map to navigating the perils of everyday life. You'll discover that June is the safest time to get elective surgery (it's the month before the new class of medical residents arrive). You'll also learn that Friday morning is the most dangerous time to go to the bank (historically, it's when most bank robberies occur). Author Melissa Heckscher even explains why tuna is the safest kind of sushi (this deep-water fish doesn't contain worms that thrive in warmer temperatures).
The perfect gift for a paranoid friend, Be Safe will make you a stranger to danger
