Excerpts from Reviews

  “This is a worthwhile, readable volume ... and it is organized for easy reference. Of course, not all accidents can be prevented. Still, if more of us took Myre’s suggestions to heart, our world would be a lot safer.”

— St. Louis Post-Dispatch


  “You may find yourself muttering “I knew that!” after reading each of the hints about keeping yourself safe in your auto, home, RV, trampolines, swimming pools; in the snow, the rain, on the golf course etc., etc., however, remember the old saying: “accidents will happen.”

  One of the things Live Safely in a Dangerous World consistently reminds us of is that many of the things we use are not toys, they are serious machines or phenomena which will cause death, or at best life-long injury.

  With a superb Information Source & Index, Live Safely in a Dangerous World is a handy handbook to have around the house, on vacation & in your car.”

— RebeccasReads (Top 500 Amazon reviewer)


  “Intelligently organized and presented manual for the accident prone set (and the rest of us too), Live Safely in a Dangerous World is an eye-opening almanac of statistics, solutions and peace of mind.

  Author Myre delivers here a magnificent manifesto for year-round safety and sanity, staging his presentation along four main fronts: Driving Safety, (city driving, expressway driving, rural roads, and yep, there's even a chapter devoted to road rage, a.k.a. "rudes of the road"); Home Safety (includes chapters on barbecues, fire detection and response, firearms, ladders and lawn mowers); Leisure and General Safety (bees, bowling and chainsaws, too) and Kids' Safety, which runs the A-Z gamut of accident possibilities and their prevention, including a chapter on the what-to-do’s about sexual abuse.

  Topped off by inclusion of a sample personal safety plan and a comprehensive index, Live Safely in a Dangerous World is simply one of the finest safety reference books around, accessible and effective in its valuable reminder that all times are safety times. Play it safe — buy it without thinking twice.”

— The Boox Review

  “It is a powerful resource for common-sense safety approaches to just about every possible topic. This book provides 127 easy-to-read articles with practical insight into important accident prevention and safety information. Following the strategies in this guide can save your life.
