"Snakes are Jeremy Seal's abiding fascination and greatest fear. So he decided to travel deep into America, Australia, Africa and India in search of some of the world's most notorious deadly snakes, and meet the people who live amongst them. The result is as far from a dry herpetologist's handbook as could be imagined. The Snakebite Survivors' Club is an exhilarating hybrid of travelogue, social history, and powerful personal exploration of a universal fear."
