About the Author:

Laurence Gonzales is the author of Surviving Survival, Flight 232 and the bestseller Deep Survival: Who Lives, Who Dies, and Why. He has won two National Magazine Awards and is a scholar at the Sante Fe Institute. He divides his time between Evanston, Illinois, and Santa Fe, New Mexico.

From AudioFile:

Laurence Gonzales's father, a WWII pilot, was the only one to escape a wartime crash. A 17-year-old girl was the sole survivor of a Peruvian plane crash. What makes one person a victim and another a survivor? Gonzales suggests that in life-and-death situations, unconventional thought patterns and managing fear through dark humor, play, and laughter help ensure survival by tempering negative emotions. Stefan Rudnicki's reading makes these harrowing anecdotes unfold like fiction. By underplaying the gruesome moments, Rudnicki highlights Gonzales's excellent research on the neurological, physiological, and psychological strengths needed when people find their lives threatened. This is an exciting listen, filled with amazing stories and helpful tips for everyone. S.J.H. AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright AudioFile, Portland, Maine
