Worst-Case Scenario Ultimate Adventure: Everest: You Decide How to Survive!Worst-Case Scenario Ultimate Adventure: Everest: You Decide How to Survive! by David Borgenicht
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

The "Choose Your Own Adventure" genre lives: this time with better production values and graphics. Unfortunately, I'm not sure this works as well in book format any longer.

The formula stays the same - at different points in the book readers are asked which option they choose (eg, "If you unclip to go with Hans, turn to pg 59" or "If you stay on the fixed rope and skip the pic, turn to pg 137") with a possible 26 different "routes" though the book. Imagine that in eBook format, with animation instead of graphics, linking to the different options rather than having readers flip back and forth through the book.
