Product Notes

When disasters both large and small occur we learn the "what" - the details of how many died, how many survived. Surving Disaster with Amanda Ripley, provides the research and insight into the "why" behind the numbers which is not only based in luck, age or economic status as it is sometimes assumed. Sociologists, neuroscientists, psychologists and survivors have found the way that people behave, react and survive in a crisis is very predictable. By combining the stories of survivors with research into how the brain works under extreme duress, Surviving Disaster with Amanda Ripley brings light into civilization's darkest moments. Why do we freeze in the middle of a fire? Why do our senses of sight and hearing change during a crisis? Why do things seem to move more slowly? And most importantly, how do we override these instincts to help US survive and thrive? Surviving Disaster with Amanda Ripley reveals how human fear functions, why our instincts sometimes misfire in modern calamities, and how we can all do much, much better.
