    PDFEPUB songuarachandocouk #243; The Unthinkable PDF #181; unthinkable epub, The Unthinkable KindleEasy read on history of disaster planning Good gut check on understand risk and how to respond Starts with the Halifax Explosion in 1917 and explores 911 1993 bombing Sewer explosions of Guadalajara and Katrina Some of the interesting items 1 Initial response in a disaster is always by neighbors or self rescue so be prepared 2 Understand risk of activities – don’t watch the news references Taleb above so Heart Attack Cancer Stroke Car accident A study showed an additional 2000 road deaths due to the decrease in air travel after 911 So based on that we should all start our day with 20 minutes of meditation and a bowl of Oatmeal 3 Very good information on fear During a crisis people go catatonic than panic Use profanity and scream to get pe

    PDFEPUB songuarachandocouk #243; The Unthinkable PDF #181; unthinkable epub, The Unthinkable Kindle Storytelling is essential to survival It’s what turns preparation into ritual and victims into saviors I had this review 95% written and my computer died because its battery is crap And now it's goneIt was a bomb review Just pretend you read it and it was REALLY goodUnfortunately you are left with the half assed version of my review because I've had an extremely rough week I basically have the mental energy of a toad right nowVeering

    PDFEPUB songuarachandocouk #243; The Unthinkable PDF #181; unthinkable epub, The Unthinkable KindleEveryone should read this book Besides being filled with utterly fascinating tales of how different people react during disasters did you know panic is actually an extremely rare response? it gives very helpful ideasplans for how to prepare yourself mentally for being involved in one This is the type of book you're always reading bits aloud to whoever happens to be in the room I cannot stress how terrific and interesting it isjust knowing the most common reasons people die in disasters could save you because these reasons are not at all what you're always believed

    PDFEPUB songuarachandocouk #243; The Unthinkable PDF #181; unthinkable epub, The Unthinkable KindleKinda disappointed to be honest I mean it is an engaging read and the her writing style is very readable which is why I'm so frustrated with how mediocre the actual content was I think my expectations were misled by the subtitle on the cover Who Survives When Disaster Strikes and Why From the subtitle I was expecting an eye opening thought provoking book based on scientific studies and statistical research similar to Freakonomics and The Tipping Point etc but what we got were psychological pro

    PDFEPUB songuarachandocouk #243; The Unthinkable PDF #181; unthinkable epub, The Unthinkable KindleThis book tells you many useful things about survival human's mind and disasters and I really enjoy the author's sense of humor as well Informative educational and effectively written We need non fictional books like thisPS I really like how scientists are having all the fun when they run their experiments 1 getting people to jump from building with safety neat beneath and 2 getting people to swim through a mazelike swimming pool so they can analyze how human's brain would work at the state of crisis

    PDFEPUB songuarachandocouk #243; The Unthinkable PDF #181; unthinkable epub, The Unthinkable KindleAn exceptional book about who survives and who doesn't in a disaster Amanda Ripley writesWe flirt shamelessly with risk today constructing city skylines in hurricane alleys and neighborhoods on top of fault lines Largely because of where we live disasters have become frequent and expensive But as we build ever impressive buildings and airplanes we do less and less to build better survivors How did we get this way? The I learned the I wondered how much of our survival behaviors—and misbehaviors—could be explained by evolution After all we evolved to escape predators not buildings that reach a quarter mile into the sky Has technology simply outpaced our survival mechanisms? But there are two kinds of evolution th

    PDFEPUB songuarachandocouk #243; The Unthinkable PDF #181; unthinkable epub, The Unthinkable KindleA couple months ago my place of employment sent me to a Readiness Conference I fan girled out listening to Dr Kevin Menes talk about his experience in the emergency department responding to the Las Vegas shooting aftermath Seriously The guy deserves a medal and is a walking superhero in health care The next session was on responding to shooters in the work force The thing that both Dr Menes and the expert shooter response trainers continued to reiterate is something I completely agree with But it took my belief from a personal anecdote to something with concrete data when tragedy strikes YOU are the first responder Not 911 So what are you doing to be ready? What makes you confident you are as ready as you can be? This book was referenced several times and I immediately put it on my short list to read It's now on my short list to buy Phenomenal book There's still a long way to go and I've had a method

    PDFEPUB songuarachandocouk #243; The Unthinkable PDF #181; unthinkable epub, The Unthinkable KindleI am admittedly very interested in disasters and their aftermath I have been ever since I was a girl I remember reading about The Titanic with fascination I was obsessed with Pompeii for a while Earthquakes tsunamis floods all of it Maybe it's because when I was young my town flooded for several days our basement filling with water and my dad away all day filling sandbags as the streets flowed like a river I don't know But I've always had a healthy fear of and fascination with what
