Gift cards are how I keep track of how much I spend on books a month. If I added $20 to my gift card, once that balance is gone, I am done buying books for the month.

The Survivors Club
Which is the safest seat on an airplane? Where is the best place to have a heart attack? Why does religious observance add years to your life? How can birthdays be hazardous to your health?
THE SURVIVORS CLUB
Each second of the day, someone in America faces a crisis, whether it’s a car accident, violent crime, serious illness, or financial trouble. Given the inevitability of adversity, we all wonder: Who beats the odds and who surrenders? Why do some people bound back and others give up? How can I become the kind of person who survives and thrives?
The fascinating, hopeful answers to these questions are found in THE SURVIVORS CLUB. In the tradition of Freakonomics and The Tipping Point, this book reveals the hidden side of survival by combining astonishing true stories, gripping scientific research, and the author’s adventures inside the U.S. military’s elite survival schools and the government’s airplane crash evacuation course.
With THE SURVIVORS CLUB, you can also discover your own Survivor IQ through a powerful Internet-based test called the Survivor Profiler. Developed exclusively for this book, the test analyzes your personality and generates a customized report on your top survivor strengths.
There is no escaping life’s inevitable struggles. But THE SURVIVORS CLUB can give you an edge when adversity strikes.
Do you ever feel overwhelmed by things? I know I do! Whether it be money, stress from my environment, or things beyond my control. I think this is a great book that would help me learn to deal with that. You can also check it out on Amazon! It’s got 4 1/2 stars on Amazon and some great reviews!
A review by Damon Gilmore on Amazon:
I have never felt compelled to write an online review, but I couldn’t resist in this case. Ben Sherwood’s “The Survivors Club” was an outstanding book. Sherwood was focused on discovering why some people survive traumatic events and others die. The real life stories are tragic, yet motivating. Sherwood not only provides some excellent examples of survival, he interviews subject matter experts to explain and answer, “Why.” I highly recommend this book. I purchased the kindle edition and completed the survivor profiler questionnaire on the website. I encourage everyone to read this book, you will not be disappointed.
I am excited to be able to give five of you a copy of The Survivor’s Club!
