Not a Gloria Gaynor bio

The Survivors Club
by Ben Sherwood

Sometime in life a bad situation will hit you and you are just SOL (i.e. you are just going to die) and sometimes you will be blessed beyond belief. But surprisingly though, a lot of people are in the great middle, they die though they probably didn't have to. Their deaths were preventable if some simple actions had been taken. This book looks at people who haved survived terrible events and identifies what actions they took that made the difference. It is also filled with fun facts and statistics about survival rates about many events. For example:

  • 1 in 60,000,000 chance of being in a plane accident on any given day (9 times more likely to be in a car accident)

  • 95.2% chance you will come out of a plane accident okay.

  • 2 and 8, the first 2 minutes and the last 8 minutes of a flight are statistically the most dangerous.

Anyways, this is a great book and you might just learn a thing or two to help you survive.

The MOST important thing for survival - the will to live. Most people die because they just give up.
