Forget Bear Grylls. It’s author Neil Strauss who will teach you the survival skills required to navigate the 21st century. After the last few years of violence and terror, of ethnic and religious hatred, of tsunamis and hurricanes – and now of world financial meltdown – the author, like most of his generation, came to the sobering realization that, even in America, anything can happen. At its simplest, “Emergency” is the story of a dangerous world and how to stay alive in it.


There are few watches with as storied a legacy as the G-SHOCK. Originally released in 1983, the Shock Resistant and 200M Water Resistant watch has remained relevant to this day. It just got even better with the release of the first full-metal addition to the continually evolving 2100 line. This model retains the original streamlined, minimalist design while being even more sleek, durable and feature-packed. With Tough Solar Power, Smartphone Link and Super Illuminator, it’s an analog watch built for the digital age. The G-SHOCK GBD2100 is available in silver, black IP and Bronze IP colorways, so there’s a stylish version for every occasion.
