What are you afraid of?

The Science of Fear by Daniel Gardner looks at why we as humans are afraid of a lot of things we should not be. Like after 911 more people chose to drive rather than fly, even though driving is a lot more dangerous (deadly). In fact 1500 people statistically died because of this increase in car travel.

Interesting book which will help ease your mind, or at least make you look at the news with a more discerning eye - like the global warming hype.
