Summary "Every morning, millions of Americans watch Jeff Rossen explain how to solve our most harrowing problems, such as: how to put out a kitchen fire, find bedbugs, avoid rip-offs, and even how to survive a plane crash. In Rossen to the Rescue, he includes daring experiments, expert advice, and game plans for handling all the wild cards in life - big and small - while sharing personal, and sometimes embarrassing, anecdotes that he couldn’t tell on television."--Dust flap
