    The Unthinkable book (surviving disasters)

    I saw recommendation of this book elsewhere and got the Kindle version. It talks about why people survive disasters and others donít. Both World Trade Center attacks, fires, shipwrecks, etc. Lot of psychology. Fascinating book. You need to read it.
