Product description

Review

Great stories of disaster and survival...combined with revealing science about the physiology and psychology of how we deal with crisis. [Gonzales's] science is accurate, accessible, up-to-date, and insightful. An extremely good book.--Robert M. Sapolsky, author of Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers

Gonzales has masterfully woven together personal survival stories with the study of human perception to reach rock-bottom truths about how to live with risk.--Peter Stark, author of Last Breath: The Limits of Adventure

Gonzalez takes us on a fascinating, fast-paced, and exciting adventure into survival. His captivating stories, many from personal experience, will keep you turning the pages, stopping only to imagine how you, and your brain, would react when faced with a survival experience.--Joseph LeDoux, author of The Emotional Brain

Riveting accounts of avalanches, mountain accidents, sailors lost at sea, and the man-made hell of 9/11.--Stephen Bodio

A fascinating look into why we are who we are.--Bill McKibben, author of Falter

Deep Survival is by far the best book on the many insights into epic survival stories I have ever read.--Daryl Miller, former chief mountaineering ranger, Denali National Park & Preserve

A feast of excitement and wonder. Makes complexity and chaos come alive, girdled by neurological processes, drenched with fantastic accounts of danger and death. You will see the world differently.--Charles Perrow, author of The Next Catastrophe
