Introduction

Yes, there have been plenty of other books about so-called man skills, but they've all been a bit too bow-tie and light-a-barbecue for my liking.

This, I hope, is different. There are only nine topics, but they are not, as far as I can discern, covered anywhere else. That makes this book indispensable in a sea of duplicated "how to" manuals, the one tin of fortifying Spam in the post-apocalyptic corner shop of putrefying groceries.

The chances that you will ever meet with the circumstances outlined here are, frankly, very remote. But you're still better off knowing this stuff than not knowing it. One day, there may well be an A330 Airbus wandering pilotlessly over the Atlantic, and someone will have to land it.

Life is a lottery, and maybe, just maybe, it could be you. But only if you've read this book.
