In moments of crisis, who will survive and who will die? One part self-help, another part science, The Survivors Club by Ben Sherwood, seeks out survivors of all kinds of accidents – from plane crashes and mountain lion attacks to being impaled with a foreign object and finding yourself lost in the woods – to see what kind of fast action response kept them alive. He explores how different methods – the power of prayer, managing fear, the will to live, and having good genes – can all lead to increasing your chances for survival. Chapters include everything from “The Science of Luck: Why Good Things Always Happen to the Same People” to “Ninety Seconds to Save Your Life: The Wrong (and Right) Things to Do in a Plane Crash.” God help me if I am ever in these predicaments! (Heck, who needs God, just let me remember passages from this book!)
