Synopsis:

“Well-written and fascinating . . . this is the kind of book you want everyone to read.”—Cleveland Plain Dealer

“Curiosity, awareness, attention,” Laurence Gonzales writes. “Those are the tools of our everyday survival. . . . We all must be scientists at heart or be victims of forces that we don’t understand.” In this fascinating account, Gonzales turns his talent for gripping narrative, knowledge of the way our minds and bodies work, and bottomless curiosity about the world to the topic of how we can best use the blessings of evolution to overcome the hazards of everyday life.

Everyday Survival will teach you to make the right choices for our complex, dangerous, and quickly changing world—whether you are climbing a mountain or the corporate ladder. 6 illustrations

Book Description: WW Norton Co, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 208 x 140 mm. Brand New Book. In his new book, the author of Deep Survival (ISBN 978 0 393 32615 4), the best book on management, leadership and employment I have read this year ( Financial Times ), shows how modern society has made us lazy and susceptible to previously unknown threats. Laurence Gonzales turns his talent for gripping narrative; his knowledge of the way our minds and bodies work, and his curiosity about the world to the topic of how we can best use the lessons of our evolutionary history to overcome the hazards of everyday life. He finds that natural laws profoundly affect our actions, and he reveals the hidden causes and costs of our behaviour, either as individuals or as a species. Whether climbing a mountain or the corporate ladder, Everyday Survival will change the way the reader views their choices in our complex, dangerous and quickly changing world.
