Publisher's Summary

We are a nation battered every day by stories about horrific calamities, tragic events, frightening statistics. Inevitably, our thoughts turn personal and we wonder if we have what it takes to get through when the worst is thrown our way.
While there are plenty of books about coping with adversity, it isn't until now, with The Survivors Club, that we discover the human factors that determine survival. It's a combination instruction manual and security blanket that blends compelling true stories with cutting-edge science to deliver some of the most important lessons we'll ever need to learn.
This audiobook will:

List the most important traits necessary for survival (fear is #1)
Identify the five types of survivors
Debunk myths (like only the strong survive), explore the frontiers of survival science (How much strain and punishment can a human body endure?), and introduce listeners to counterintuitive thinking (Ever heard of posttraumatic growth?).
Provide a Survivors Tool Kit, including an online test (at www.thesurvivorsclub.org/) that measures one's Survivor's Quotient

Each one of us eventually joins the club of millions who face life's inescapable tribulations and tragedies. The Survivors Club is the companion we need to prepare us for and guide us through the worst.

a how to guide to survival when bad things happen

Ben Sherwood does a solid job of homing in on what qualities and characteristics most everyone can muster to maximize their chances of survival when bad things happen. Through a range of examples and interviews with experts, he tells us not only what we need to do, but what we should ignore while working hard to stay alive. Narration is first rate.

Any additional comments?

The stories of survival and how to survive in all sorts of situations were engaging and powerful. Thanks to this book I view choices I make very differently. I approach how I pick my seats on an air plane in a very new light. I travel awake and alert. I am aware of silly errors that can cause terrible outcomes. An eyeopener that sticks with you. Highly recommended reading.
