Contingency Cannibalism
By Shiguro Takada

This book is a mostly "tongue in cheek" look at the world of cannibalism for survival. While it is darkly humorous, It's rough and raw and covers topics like "Does it taste like chicken?, What will my friends think? etc...

Shiguro also takes a look at cases where cannibalism actually occured, such as the ill-fated Donner party, the stranded Uruguayan rugby team and several other case histories.

While meant totally as a humorous book, it has some serious undertones

Chapters include (But are not limited to):
Why shouldn't we adopt cannibalism as a survivalist option?
A really long time ago: Cannibalism is natural
The Donner Party
Maritime Common Law, short straws and legal issues
Taco Stuffings
And MANY others.

The Down Side:
Some parts of this book take a strong stomach to read, it was obviously meant to be funny in a morbid sort of way and the Author and Paladin Press want you to know that it is a humourous book and nothing more!

Would WE Buy It?:
AHHHhhhh, No. Not that it's not a good read, but my humor doesn't run that way... If yours does, this is the book for you! I do know people that would howl with laughter over the content of this read.

Technical Specs:
Soft Cover, 151 pages in 15 Chapters plus glossary.
