Rarely are we required to recruit this instinct today because seldom do we find ourselves in situations that are truly life-threatening. However, this part of our brain is programmed to naturally and automatically react to even the most benign forms of discomfort and stress as serious threats to our survival.
In this seminal audiobook we learn how the survival instinct is the culprit that triggers a person to overeat, prevents the insomniac from sleeping, causes the executive to unravel under pressure, leads travelers to avoid planes or freeways, inflames pain, and due to past heartache, closes down an individual to love.
In all of these cases, their overly-sensitive survival instinct is being called into action at the slightest hint of discomfort. In short, their survival instinct is stuck in the on position…with grave consequences.
Your Survival Instinct Is Killing You can transform the way you live. Provocative, eye-opening, and surprisingly practical with its gallery of strategies and ideas, this audiobook will show you how to build up your "instinctual muscles" for successfully managing discomfort while taming your overly reactive survival instinct. You will learn that the management of discomfort is the single most important skill for the 21st century.
This audiobook is, at its heart, a modern guide to survival.

Interesting / Poor Reading
What made the experience of listening to Your Survival Instinct Is Killing You the most enjoyable?
Interesting ideas and well written but the author is better thinker and writer than he is a reader. The audio is stilted and awkward. Very hard to listen to. Wish I had bought the paper version.
