Publisher Description

“Well-written and fascinating . . . this is the kind of book you want everyone to read.”—Cleveland Plain Dealer

“Curiosity, awareness, attention,” Laurence Gonzales writes. “Those are the tools of our everyday survival. . . . We all must be scientists at heart or be victims of forces that we don’t understand.” In this fascinating account, Gonzales turns his talent for gripping narrative, knowledge of the way our minds and bodies work, and bottomless curiosity about the world to the topic of how we can best use the blessings of evolution to overcome the hazards of everyday life.

Everyday Survival will teach you to make the right choices for our complex, dangerous, and quickly changing world—whether you are climbing a mountain or the corporate ladder.

Don’t Waste Your Time

Long winded, pointless tangents. Underlying message concerning global warming. Gonzales obviously has father issues he hasn’t resolved yet.
This book is about survival of the species, and has nothing to do with actual survival. Waste of time.
