Beach Survival GuideI don't mean to alarm you, but a trip to the beach isn't always about sand, surf, and sunshine. There are a host of hazards looming on our coastline, from tidal rips to man-eating sharks. Dr. Beach dishes the dirt on all these dangers in his survival guide.

His pen name is a bit kitschy but Dr. Beach or Stephen Leatherman to his mom, is actually one of America's leading beach experts. He knows plenty about dangerous coastal wildlife, the perilous surf, and all manner of marine hazards. And if he doesn't know it, it's probably not worth knowing. This subject matter sounds pretty dry but his quirky facts and anecdotes help to liven up this guide.

Personally I can't think of anything worse than learning about all those threats, but if you feel like swotting up this makes for great beachside reading. It's a fairly small paperback book, so it shouldn't take up too much space in your beach tote. And if you prefer you can even get it on your Kindle. Some suggest that its short size means it glosses over some topics, but do you really want to know all about this stuff? Sometimes I think ignorance really is bliss!
