1. Worst Case Scenario Survival Handbook: (extreme edition) - Joshua Piven and David Borgenicht

When a life is imperiled or a dire situation is at hand,
safe alternatives may not exist. To deal with the
extreme worst-case scenarios presented in this book,
we highly recommend—insist, actually—that the best
course of action is to consult a professionally trained
expert. But because highly trained professionals may
not always be available when the safety or sanity of
individuals is at risk, we have asked experts on various
subjects to describe the techniques they might employ
in these emergency situations. THE PUBLISHER,
LIABILITY from any injury that may result from the
use, proper or improper, of the information contained
in this book. All the information in this book comes
from experts in the situation at hand, but we do not
guarantee that the information contained herein
is complete, safe, or accurate, nor should it be considered
a substitute for your good judgment and
common sense. And finally, nothing in this book
should be construed or interpreted to infringe on the
rights of other persons or to violate criminal statutes;
we urge you to obey all laws and respect all rights,
including property rights, of others.
—The Authors

We are dismayed and sorry to report that despite our
best efforts, the world hasn't really gotten any safer.
We tried, with the publication of the first Worst-
Case Scenario Survival Handbook in 1999, to give
readers the expertise and the confidence to survive
life's sudden turns for the worse. Our approach was
1. Be prepared.
2. Don't panic.
3. Have a plan.
That first book provided plans for dealing with quicksand,
killer bees, leaps from rooftops, and many other
We followed up with The Worst-Case Scenario
Survival Handbook: Travel, which proved enormously
helpful for anyone leaving their house, and then
diversified, providing survival techniques for entirely
different kinds of dangers: Dating & Sex, Golf,
Holidays, Work, Parenting, College, and Weddings.
With this handbook we return to our roots—
good old-fashioned, action-packed survival for those
inclined to extreme activities that go bad.
Within, you'll find all-new advice about surviving
dozens of scenarios, from an elephant stampede to a
runaway hot air balloon, from skiing offa 100-foot
drop to landing a helicopter if the engine fails. You'll
learn how to survive if you're stranded on an iceberg,

if you fall down a street grating, and if you find yourself
choking or having a heart attack. All the advice is
backed by our network of experts, and all comes with
clear, step-by-step, illustrated instructions.
Because, after all this time, after the TV show and
the calendars and journals and cards and games, we
still want you to be prepared. And, trust us, you're not
as prepared as you could be.
Because you just never know. . . .

2. Secret Symbolism in Occult Art - Fred Gettings

Occult arts and sciences (alchemy, astrology, numerology, the tarot, spirit forces, witchcraft. magic and others) were practiced openly in ancient society. Occult wisdom was a part of everyday existence until the Middle Ages when Christianity renounced it as anti-Christ. Erudite scientists and enlightened practitioners were forced into hiding and their teachings were perpetuated by local artists and visionaries.

The accoutrements of the spiritual sciences, the unusual mythological symbolism - a mystery unto itself - conceal the seminal principles. But it must be remembered that these circuitous images were not part of the original doctrine.

Hiding the secret teachings behind painted veils became the best way to prevent a repetition of the disaster that befell the Knights Templar, who were falsely accused of hideous crimes, tortured and murdered by those who opposed their beliefs.

In Secret Symbolism in Occult Art, Fred Gettings leads a tour of occult art and its symbolism from prehistoric times, through the turbulence of the Inquisition and up to the present, where it has once again become a part of everyday life. Many of our words, letters and sounds are occult in origin and contain hidden energies in their symbolism.

The Egyptian ankh, which protects its wearer from harm, the six-rayed star known as the seal of Solomon and the evil eye are well known and part of many occult teachings - perhaps part of the collective unconscious as well. Other more esoteric symbols such as the bell ringer and the salamander in the flame will be recognized by initiates. These symbols preserve the records of numerous enlightened persons, living in different times and places.

In Secret Symbolism in Occult Art, artists include Piero della Vecchia, Albrecht Dürer, William Blake and Arthur Rackham, clairvoyant C.W. Leadbeater, Rosicrucian Jacob Boehme and many other convey the secrets of the hidden realm. Fred Gettings, in turn studies their fascinating symbols, putting each work of art in its historic and spiritual context for a full appreciation of its meaning."

4. Secrets of Occult Sciences: How to Read Omens, Moles, Dreams and Handwriting - Dr. L. R. Chawdhri 1990

God has created this world and everything in it has a meaning. It is for man to discover these hidden meanings or messages and decipher them, for his own good. Ancient civilisations like those of the Hindus, Greeks, Romans, Chaldaeans, Chinese and Sumerians considered these hidden meanings to be of vital significance in the context of the destiny and personality of human beings. Dreams, omens, moles on a person's body, twitching of certain parts of the body, handwriting - all have a hidden meaning for us to discover. What sun sign we are born under and how it affects our personality and life; the use of lucky charms and Tantric articles to mitigate evil influences and attain good health, wealth and happiness; modern yantras like Crystal Ball Gazing and the Mystic Eye, are all dealt with in this book in a simple and interesting manner for the uninitiated reader, as well as for astrologers, palmists and others.

5. The Universe: A Historical Survey Of Beliefs, Theories, And Laws - Erik Gregersen 2010

On the cover: Theories and beliefs about the cosmos have been nearly as vast as the
universe itself, covering everything from the birth of a single star to the discovery of
objects such as the Galaxy Triplet ARP 274 (pictured).

From Introduction:

Early theories of the universe
depicted Earth as a pillar at the center of
everything, around which the Sun, Moon,
and planets circled. The Greeks were
experts at geography—they calculated
the radius of Earth by using the Sun—
and mathematics, but they used reason
to avoid coming to some obvious conclusions.
By the time of Aristotle
(384–322 BCE), hundreds of years later,
they believed Earth was in the shape of
a ball, but still thought that the Sun,
stars, and planets passed around Earth.
Aristotle believed that there could only
be a fi nite number of stars, because they
all passed around Earth every 24 hours.

Scientists now believe that about a quarter
of the total energy density of the
universe is composed of dark matter.

The totality of the universe is perhaps
unknowable. But the theories, beliefs, and
laws examined in this book—which represent
the life’s work of many incredible
individuals—offer the best understanding
humankind has been able to achieve thus
far. It is awe-inspiring to ponder what
advances the dreamers and visionaries of
the 21st century will bring.

6. Apocalypse When?: Calculating How Long the Human Race Will Survive - Willard Wells 2009

This book will be a key trailblazer in a new and upcoming field. The author’s predictive approach relies on simple and intuitive probability formulations that will appeal to readers with a modest knowledge of astronomy, mathematics, and statistics. Wells’ carefully erected theory stands on a sure footing and thus should serve as the basis of many rational predictions of survival in the face of natural disasters such as hits by asteroids or comets in the coming years.
Any formula for predicting human survival will invite controversy. Dr Wells counters anticipated criticism with a thorough approach in which four lines of reasoning are used to arrive at the same survival formula. One uses empirical survival statistics for business firms and stage shows. Another is based on uncertainty of risk rates. The third, more abstract, invokes Laplace’s principle of insufficient reason and involves an observer’s random arrival in the lifetime of the entity (the human race) in question. The fourth uses Bayesian theory.

The author carefully explains and gives examples of the conditions under which his principle is valid and provides evidence that can counteract the arguments of critics who would reject it entirely. His deflection of possible criticisms results from two major premises: selecting the proper random variable and “reference class” to make predictions, and the recognition that if one does not know the law that governs a process, then the best prediction that can be made is his own formula.

7. The Complete Valley of the Kings: Tombs and Treasures of Egypt's Greatest Pharaohs - C. N. Reeves, Richard H. Wilkinson, Nicholas Reeves 1996

Here is the definitive account of the Valley of the Kings, visited by millions of tourists and famous throughout the world as the burial place of the great New Kingdom pharaohs. Some eighty tombs were dug in the valley at the height of Egyptian power more than 3,000 years ago, their chambers stocked with incredible treasures and decorated with magnificent wall paintings. It was here, in 1922, that Howard Carter stumbled upon the virtually intact tomb of the boy-king, Tutankhamun. Recently the valley has made international headlines with the discovery of the burial chapels of Ramesses the Great's many sons; The Complete Valley of the Kings is the first book to publish an account of these remarkable findings. Reeves and Wilkinson, both acknowledged authorities on the valley, bring together the art, archaeology and history in one exciting account.

9. The Forts of Celtic Britain - osprey 2006

Half a millennium before the Romans first arrived in Britain an even more ferocious people arrived in what is now south-eastern England after migrating from the mainland of Europe. This civilisation, known as the Celts first arrived in Britain in the 6th century BC, and within 300 years had made the island their own. The Celts remained in Britain long after the Romans departed, and although driven into the remoter corners of the island by English invaders the people who remained clung onto their Celtic heritage, and defended their remaining lands against all-comers. In order to defend their lands from other tribes or outside invaders these people established powerful fortified sites that served as places of refuge in wartime and as administrative and trading centres in times of peace. Above all these came to symbolise tribal power, a dramatic symbol of territorial ownership and military might. These forts varied considerably from region to region, from the mysterious brochs and duns found in northern Britain to the promontory forts that formed powerful coastal strongholds all around the island's shores. Even more commonly these Celtic strongholds took the form of hill-forts, ranging in size from small, fortified hilltop villages to sprawling military citadels. These are the forts that form the subject of this fascinating Fortress series title.

10. Thimerosal and Autism Spectrum Disorders: Alleged Misconduct by Government Agencies and Private Entities

Beginning in 2005, the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions
(HELP Committee or Committee) conducted an 18-month investigation into allegations
of misconduct on the part of individuals and U.S. government officials related to the use of the preservative thimerosal in childhood vaccines and its possible contribution to an
increase in rates of autism. Over the course of the investigation, the Ranking Member’s
staff interviewed more than 80 individuals and examined tens of thousands of pages of
documents, totaling thousands of hours of staff time. The Ranking Member’s staff took
care to speak with a number of parents of children with autism about their concerns and their experiences, as well as individuals from the scientific community.

In 2006, the HELP Committee passed S. 843, the Combating Autism Act, followed by
passage in the full Senate and House of Representatives. The Congress passed S. 843 at the conclusion of the 109th Congress. It was signed into law on December 19, 2006 (P.L.
109-416). The bill amends the Public Health Service Act to authorize $945 million
dollars over five years for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to help
combat autism through research, screening, intervention and education. This legislation
is an important step in isolating the causes of autism and developing new treatments for
those with autism.

The Ranking Member recognizes there are active scientific debates regarding a possible
causal connection between thimerosal in childhood vaccines and autism. However,
Congress is not in a position to substitute its judgment for that of scientists.
Therefore, this report does not render an opinion on the safety of thimerosal in
vaccines. Rather, the investigation assessed allegations of misconduct by
government officials and private entities in connection with the thimerosal

This report serves as a summary of the Ranking Member’s staff efforts to address the
allegations brought to its attention by family members of children who have autism
spectrum disorders, as well as by medical researchers who are active in the autism
community. The allegations and the Ranking Member’s findings on each are discussed
below. The Ranking Member will continue to monitor developments on this issue;
however, the Ranking Member is closing this investigation.

13. The Mysteries: Unveiling The Knowledge Of Subtle Energy In Ritual - Bernard Heuvel 2008

In this book we will go on a visionary quest for the ancient Mysteries through research of mysterious and sometimes obscure literature. We speak about the hidden esoteric meaning of the sacramental systems, which form the basis of the various religious practices. For practical reasons, I have limited this research to the influence of Christian and Masonic sacramental systems. Maintaining a subtle energy grid or matrix in a negative way by desecration is the way to keep the individuals in their own thought prisons. Creating a positive energy grid by consecration can help liberate individuals and beneficially influence collective consciousness

14. The Zelator: A Modern Initiate Explores the Ancient Mysteries - Mark Hedsel 2000

. . . man is not Man as yet.
Nor shall I deem his object served, his end
Attained, his genuine strength put fairly forth,
While only here and there a star dispels
The darkness, here and there a towering mind
O'erlooks its prostrate fellows . . .
Such men are even now upon the earth,
Serene amid the half-formed creatures round
Who should be saved by them and joined with them.
(Robert Browning, Paracelsus, from the 1867 ed. of The
Poetical Works of Robert Browning, vol. I, pp. 190 and 192)
I first saw Mark Hedsel in October 1955, at the Archer Gallery, in
Westbourne Grove, London. He was talking to Dr Morris, the almostdestitute
owner of the gallery, and to that most remarkable artist, Austin
Osman Spare, who had a selection of paintings, pastels and drawings on
exhibition at the gallery.1
Dr Morris had to some extent taken Spare under her wing, and had
arranged this exhibition in order to help him earn enough money to keep
body and soul together.2 I later discovered that Spare knew that this
would be his last exhibition: he had said to a friend that he would be dead
within the year.

15. The Borderlands of Science: Where Sense Meets Nonsense - Michael Shermer 2001

As author of the bestselling Why People Believe Weird Things How We Believe, and Editor-in-Chief of Skeptic magazine, Michael Shermer has emerged as the nation's number one scourg of superstition and bad science. Now, in The Borderlands of Science, he takes us to the place where real science (such as the big bang theory), borderland science (superstring theory) and just plain nonsense (Big Foot) collide with one another.

Shermer argues that science is the best lens through which to view the world, but he recognizes that it's often difficult for most of us to tell where valid science leaves off and borderland science begins. To help us, Shermer looks at a range of topics that put the boundary line in high relief. For instance, he discusses the many "theories of everything" that try to reduce the complexity of the world to a single principle, and shows how most fall into the category of pseudoscience. He examines the work of Darwin and Freud, explaining why one is among the great scientists in history, while the other has become nothing more than a historical curiosity. He also shows how Carl Sagan's life exemplified the struggle we all face to find a balance between being open-minded enough to recognize radical new ideas but not so open-minded that our brains fall out. And finally, he reveals how scientists themselves can be led astray, as seen in the infamous Piltdown Hoax.

Michael Shermer's enlightening volume will be a valuable a to anyone bewildered by the many scientific theories swirling about. It will help us stay grounded in common sense as we try to evaluate everything from SETI and acupuncture to hypnosis and cloning.
