The Survivors Club: The Secrets and Science that Could Save Your Life by Ben Sherwood.
I just finished this book over the weekend and I'd recommend it to anyone who is interested improving their odds of surviving a potentially fatal crisis. The author spent a lot of time talking to survivors, being trained by expects in military survival, and going through airline safety schools. He spoke with researchers who study survival and neuroscientists who delve into the chemistry of crisis behavior.
This isn't a cookbook of tips and hints. You won't get any information about building signal fires or purifying water here. It's all about the mindset or rather the several mindsets that improve your odds and help you process the aftermath. It's not all about airplane crashes and floods, either. He also touches on surviving crime, heart attacks, and clumsiness.
I particularly liked one section on pure luck and how you can actually influence a force that appears to be random but isn't anywhere near as impersonal as it looks.
When you buy the book, you get a code to log into The Survivors Club site where you can take a test to determine your basic survivor type and your three best survival traits (as well as identifying three traits that you should probably work on).
I think anyone who reads this book and Gavin DeBecker's Gift of Fear will have some pretty helpful preparation for the inevitable train wrecks in life. :)
