I came to listen to Penn

This was Ok . I only got this to listen to Penn Jillette talk .
I was saddened that this was not as funny as I thought it would be .
This would be good as a blog or a few articles .
I really should have thought this one through before this purchase.

Good info to have in case of an emergency.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook to be better than the print version?

No... because of the subject matter. I am sure there are drawings and pictures that could come in handy in an emergency.

What did you like best about this story?

Penn Jillette narrating.

What does Penn Jillette bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

A sense of humor and wit.
