AUTHORS
Joshua Piven, a resident of Philadelphia, is a computer journalist and freelance writer, and is a former editor at Ziff-Davis Publishing. He has been chased by knife-weilding motorcycle bandits, stuck in subway tunnels, been robbed and mugged, has had to break down doors and pick locks, and his computer crashes regularly.

David Borgenicht, a resident of Philadelphia, is a writer and editor who has written several nonfiction books. He has ridden in heavily-armored vehicles in Pakistan, stowed away on Amtrak, been conned by a grifter, broken into several houses (each for good reason), and has "borrowed" mini-bottles from the drink cart on delta.

NARRATOR

REVIEWS
Hemispheres Magazine
"Burt Reynolds has put his own inimitable touch on The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook."

Library Journal
"Sure to be a big hit with teenage boys and adventurous types. Read by Burt Reynolds, this book is highly recommended for all public libraries."

Inside.com
"Reynolds does give just the right inflection of experienced gravitas as he recites the book's mottos: Anything that can go wrong will... Be prepared... You just never know..."

The Philadelphia Inquirer
"Recording a book like this is somewhat of a risk in itself. In this case it works... Reynolds has just the right note of drollery in his voice."
