The 11th September attacks horrified the world - and heralded an era in which as private citizens we can no longer take our safety for granted. Confronting these new threats head-on, the survival guide: what to do in biological, chemical or nuclear emergency is a comprehensive guide to what to expect and how to react in over 30 terrorist worst-case scenarios, including attacks involving anthrax, cyanide, dirty bombs, plague, ricin, sarin and smallpox. Written by the Medical Director for the New York City Mayor's Office of Emergency Management and specially adapted for a UK readership, The survival guide describes medical symptoms and treatments, offers practical information on responding to specific emergencies, and gives advice on such issues as disasters planning and transport in the event of an attack. In an ideal world, no-one would need the survival guide. But we live in a far-from-ideal world, so the information in this book is both reassuring and empowering - and could save your life.
