Okay, it's not The Boy's Book of Survival on an Alien Planet, so we're stretching things a bit to include it here, but it does include surviving alien invasions (if they're just visiting, show them the sights, if they're here for world domination...head for the hills), zombie attacks (notoriously difficult to kill because they're already dead) and other classic SF scenarios. From official release/information:
Lost in the desert? Stuck in quicksand? Confronted by a man-eating tiger? Trapped at a school dance? Fear not, brave reader! With this essential survival guide, you'll find a way to get yourself out of every imaginable predicament, whether it's an avalanche or a zombie invasion!
How to survive anything all in one handy book! Inside you'll find out how to treat a snakebite, send an SOS message, track an animal, make a map, and build a ladder. Find out how to survive a school dance, a shopping trip with your mom, a pop quiz, and a shark attack!
