After reading the introduction I thought this book is on how to handle the unexpected events – a very fascinating topic for me.
But this book doesn’t teach you how to handle the unforeseen events – actually this is a collection of very short stories showing people finding themselves in unanticipated and stressful situations. There’s no end or solution to these stories and the reader is invited to resolve them by himself.
If you enjoy solving puzzles, you may like this book. If you have friends who also enjoy such activity, you can do it in group.
Those looking for some guidance for how to handle the unexpected – should look somewhere else.

Outsmart the unexpected Book was a very different kind of book. Most stories in the book show how individual choices affect the whole community. It will definitely be a good book to use in groups or classrooms to entice people to work together in finding solutions and to foster a sense of community. I would like this book to have some scenarios for teenagers. I enjoyed reading the book and thank you for sharing it. ( )

This book is a great opportunity to work with a teen program on thinking quickly. I thought of several book talks or teen reading programs (that's the librarian in me) where I used this book to engage students in thinking quickly about tense, crazy situations, and how to best get out of a bad situation. I'm glad I received this e-book. I intend to reread it for future activities.
